Adam L. Bond
After buying my first Mosin in 2009, I was fascinated by its simplicity, ruggedness, and steadfast accuracy. And INLOVE with the cartridge. But I still wanted to push heavier bullets further, more accurately. After studying many other cartridges on the market, I designed with the 7.62x54r Bond Improved. But not first without the help of my great and knowledgeable friends Mark Pitt, Joe Roach, and the machining expertise of his brother Austin Bond, who helped machine the first prototype you see in the Gallery section.
