Arrived yesterday. 1898 Tula receiver, 1942 Sako bbl, matching bolt, rematched floorplate. Bore is beautiful, and rifle has a very nice trigger. I think this will be one heck of a shooter. It has the best feel for me of any of my bolt action milsurps.

I love Finn's. I've got 2 of them, an M24 and an M28.

I'll echo what SD is saying about Finn's and .308 bullets. I also use them in my RomAK 3 (PSL) and they shoot really well.
 
Reloading 7.62x54R isn't a money saving afair, unless you have a Tokarev or Drangunov/PSL. Then it's a matter of getting reasonably priced non-corrosive ammo. You can find cheap, decent 7.62x54R ammo, but the military stuff is corrosive. Clean well after shooting it, and you should have no problems. I use it in my Nagants, and clean well after. I have used it in my PSL, but, I've found it to be more work to clean than a bolt gun.
