I kept seeing what looked like belts of 7.62x54R on Iraqi troops in the news. I finally did some research and figured out that yes indeed, they are still using 7.62x54R in their PK(M) machineguns. I was a little shocked.

I'm not surprised its still in use. The russians seem to find something that works, and use it forever. Probably because its durable as all heck, and it can be used forever. (Maybe because they don't have the $$ to search for anything better?)

.30-06 M1 carbine? yowch. I'm not a big fan of recoil. I tolerate it when need be. my 03a3 usually gives me a headache to shoot it. (I guess the stiff recoil don't help my neck too much...) A recoil pad may be the ticket. haha.

38 hits fired from a bolt action in 1 minute is impressive. I think people now are spoiled, and lazy. Either that, or don't realize what you can do with a decent rifle. I will be the first to admit I am one of those guys. I settle for "good enough" too much. Except one time while at the range, a friend of mine set up a red bull can at 100, and shot at it 3 times w/ my AR, and missed every time. This was after he got done bragging about what a good shot he was. I took one lucky shot and blew it up. I was aiming, but to hit a can like that @ 100 w/ iron sites is luck. haha.

The Mosin and the Enfield are similar in caliber, the rounds are similar in size and power, and rimmed to boot. Given the scarcity of .303 and the many Enfields with shot-out bores and barrels, has anyone heard of an Enfield conversion to 7.62 X 54R? Is there any reason this wouldn't be feasible?

Not quite sure if this is what you are looking for but, here is the link: Products

Besides all the Barrels they offer, they are very close to releasing a NEW barrel for the Enfield's .303

ALSO, 26" USGI .308 WIN M1917 Enfield Barrel

Hope this helps
