    For the legal possession of weapons, we require a permit for each weapon. Under this permit it is possible to buy ammunition. Foreigners also have the same permit, a temporary - and is engaged in the receiving side, the organization that organizes hunting tours. Now the rules are a bit relaxed, and foreign hunters can move around the country with weapons on their own, unaccompanied. But the purchase of ammunition is not regulated by law. I'll ask on our website.

    "To obtain a permit for the temporary import of weapons and ammunition for the purpose of participation in hunting, as well as its return export, hunting organizations submit to the OHRM of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia or the territorial body of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia.

    The application is attached:
    a copy of the agreement on the provision of services in the field of hunting...;
    the list of number registration of the weapon imported into the Russian Federation, with indication of its type, model, caliber, series and number, and also type and number of cartridges (in the presence)".

    Exactly, and if you alter to a larger caliber, and barrel change is not necessary, you can drill out the old one. Finns did hunting rifles under a sleeve of Mosin and bullets of 8,2 mm from Mauser 98 (they had a large stock of these bullets from the German deliveries after 1918), and not only discussed here 9,3.
    In Russia there were calibers 5,6, 6,5 mm (sports, now you will not find them), 8.2 (too), 9.3 mm and now even 10.85 for special Lancaster drilling.

    The diameter oft this "Lancaster" seems to be 10,3 mm, isn't it?

    This would make sence, we have a cartridge 10,3x60R also known as .450/400 2 3/8" Nitro Express.

    This "Lancaster" cartridge is based on the 7,62x53R cartridge case also?

    Russian sporting arms and ammunition seems to be very interesting....

    A picture of the special Lancaster Drilling would be great!!!

    Thanks for all the information.

    The range of cartridges in shops is very specific. Foreign ammunition is very expensive (sanctions, embargoes, etc.). I understand that this is only for the collapse of the tyrannical regime, but for the average hunter it is uncomfortable. There is a good South African, and Yugoslav. There is Russian, here is in your caliber (roughly on 60 cents) https://www.air-gun.ru/patroni/nare..._po_gg_og_npz_v_pachke_21_sht_tsena_1_patrona

    And about Lancaster drilling... it's not rifle, it's shotgun

    Vashper, do you have any information on the cartridge with the 10.3 projectile in the 53/54 mm case? Bullet weights, velocity, etc.
    It appears very similar to a wildcat I have called the 405 Grenadier, a .412 dia. bullet in an improved /blown out 7.62 or 9.3x54R case ( mine is built on a Siamese Mauser action with a Pac-Nor barrel )
