Each rifle had a projectile with it's own story paired with it. Hence why I am curious about user reviews of the Nagat and it's 7.62x54 ammunition.
NATO/Warsaw Pact are post WWII. These rifles predate that by decades, all having been designed in the 1890s. The M-N, K98, (the 1903 Springfield is basicly a 98 Mauser), Enfield were designed when even minor countries like Montenegro had their own cartridges as a point of national pride. The 7.62X54R, 303, 30-03 & 8X57 originally had round nose bullets & probably wouldn't have lasted long if the Germans hadn't developed the Spitzer bullet. They are all in the high power battle rifle class. On the M-N I'd avoid the short barrelled M-44 & 91/59, they can pop you pretty good.
