PostSubject: 53r vs 54r Any difference? Finn vs Russian ANSWERS HERE   Sat Aug 23, 2014 6:38 pm

After scouring the net for case length recommendations, and conversations about 53r and 54r case difference, and urban legends, etc etc.... here is the best info I could come up with.

ALL CURRENT 54r PRODUCTION IS MADE TO FUNCTION IN ALL 54r/53r WEAPONS (always check projectile and bore dia first ofcourse).

Originally, yes the 2 cases were made to two completely different C.I.P. standards. But that is no longer the case.

We are not alone in the confusion. Apparently over seas, between the Finns and Russia there has been great confusion among enthusiasts as well.

The bottom line: IMO, if someone is reloading 54r/53r and has case length questions, it appears to be generally accepted that 2.114 is the max trim length. Although I have seen longer. I do not know min trim length, however, I have trimmed down to 2.045 with no problems and great results. Determine your preferred length depending on your individual rifle and load characteristics.
