    Stainless and approximately 200 rounds. I have always (almost) retained brass about 100 rounds shot for brass prior to being shortened about 20 in my load work up for 139 SSTs and another 80 maybe hunting and poi checks probably less tbh. Shot Superformance factory near enough to the SST loads that I would use my left over factory ammo if I was in a pinch. I will try find load data but was RL17 Hornady Brass (has a bit more capacity than the federal I had used) and the 139 SSTs at 2725 fps. Factory superformance does 2675 fps so not much in it powerwise but there was about half inch groups with the reloads and less ES. Can try find load data but I can't seem to find RE17 anymore for the life of me.

    1890/30 tula mnf mosin nagant mnf 1943, barrel cut to 460 mm, length oal 980 mm. In an ati stock fitted with a timney trigger. The scope is a cheap NC star pistolero 2-7 long eye relief but it works fine and handles knocks. Had a lot of fun with this and the 308 russian( 7.62x54R) kills stuff.
