Some of the older 54 stuff is brass cased.....and corrosive. My local boom shop had several tins of 54R for $95/700 or $120/650 already on strippers. Both of them were brass cased, and he told me they were Boxer-style primers. I am contemplating a Mosin, but the only domestic ammo manufacturer right now is Winchester....at $24.95/20 box. I can still get 7.62x39 hunting loads in several brands from domestic manufacturers for between $10 and $15 per 20.
