Load data for caliber "7.62 Nagant Russ."
The 7.62x38mmR, also known as the 7.62 mm Nagant and Cartridge, Type R, is an ammunition cartridge designed for use in the Russian Nagant M1895 revolver. This revolver was used by Russian and Soviet troops during both World Wars, and has been out of production since 1950.

The 7.62x38mmR round is a relatively small-bore cartridge with a 5-round non-detachable magazine. It is a unique round due to its gas seal system which allows the cylinder to move forward when fired, creating a seal between the cylinder and barrel that increases muzzle velocity and accuracy.

The Mosin Nagant Model 91/30 is another firearm chambered in this round. This bolt action rifle has a 7.62x54r chambering and holds up to five rounds in its non-detachable magazine. This rifle was used by Russian forces during World War II and remains popular among collectors today due to its historical significance.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
