    I suspect that you cannot get five 7.62 x 54R cartridges in a standard P-14 mag. because they are somewhat fatter than the .303. Standard 7.62 x 54R ammo is a few thou SHORTER than Mk7 .303 Ball.

    If you can find one, an extractor for the Indian 2A1 is a good place to start. Being designed to work with the 7.62 NATO sized rim, albeit originally in a No1 style bolt-head, is an advantage.
