      I'd say the 7.62 is a good round for hunting, and I know a guy that uses that rifle to hunt with, but only short range(no scope).

        I have used mine on deer just for the challenge. Very accurate with open sights out to about 100 yards, after that the sight covers up way to much of the target, causing one to shoot at the animal instead of the vitals....as far as the round, it is more than enough for most big game in the lower 48...

          7.62x54 ? Is there a "civilian" equivalent to that? What's something close to it? About a .308, I think, since that's 7.62x51.

            yes it has a substantial knock down power and is bought in .308 or 7.62x54 bullet size.

              Absolutely. Although it is inexpensive, it shoots a very deadly round. It is a good one for most deer hunting conditions. It is not as fancy as a Weatherby but your deer won't know the difference.

                Like riding a moped or dating a fat girl. Might be fun, but you wouldn't want your friends to see you!
