XR Russian

This cartridge was developed for the Czar's troops in 1891. Its 150-grain spitzer bullet was adopted in 1909

Prior to and during WWI, the rifles were manufactured by New England Westinghouse Co., Remington and Winchester. When the Czar lost the revolution, large numbers of these rifles were declared surplus and were sold to U.S. citizens. Remington loaded a 150 grain bronze point hunting round for a time.

Bore dimensions vary in these rifles from .308" up to .311". Our pressure barrel has a .311" groove diameter. If your barrel is smaller than .310, .308 diameter bullets are probably a better choice.

This is a relatively low pressure cartridge. Norma factory ammo averaged 45,200 PSI. Our data does not exceed that pressure.
