7.62x38R Nagant

Developed during 1890s, this cartridge was especially designed for Belgian Nagant revolvers which featured unique gas-seal action. The bullet is seated deep into the cartridge case, and prior to firing the cylinder of the revolver moves forward, so the cartridge mouth enters the barrel to provide gas seal between the cylinder and bore. It was extensively used in Russia and USSR, as well as in Poland.

 Today, this round is obsolete!
