    Question regarding Russian LVE 7.62 x 54R hunting ammunition

    Hello Everyone, Thanks for accepting me as a new member.!!! I came across a few boxes of what appears to be Russianicon hunting ammunition. The box is blueish/green. V25 = 705 m/s is printed in the right upper hand corner along with LVE 7.62 x 54R Hunting Cartridges FMJ in the center . Bullet mass is 13g and the box states that the ammunition is non-corrosive. The headstand reads LVE 99 and the cases appear to be copper washed. I was hoping someone on here could tell me more about this ammunition. For example, how does it preform, is it indeed non-corrosive, when was it made, etc.? Thanks in advance.

    Your ammunition was made in 1999 at the Nosovibirsk Low Voltage Equipment plant in Novosibirsk, Russiaicon and is non corrosive and fairly accurate in my experience.
    Is yours soft point or FMJ? I have some white box 148gr FMJ that's labeled as "hunting ammunition". Seems I remember the hunting ammunition designation was used as a loophole to skirt the Obummer era import ban on Russian military style guns and ammo. My 91/30 PU was imported as a "hunting carbine" around the same time frame.

    Hello, thanks for responding to my question. Itís an FMJ. I pulled one of the bullets and it appears to have a boat tail. Looks well made. Glad to hear that itís non -corrosive. One can never be too sure with the eastern block stuff.
