I have a Russian Mosin that was given to me and i believe it is stock WWII. I can find that out if necessary. The issue is I was told with the older military rifles to only shoot bulk military rounds through them, which tend to be FMJ, because the new ammo especially hunting type ammo is too hot for the gun to handle.

I was thinking about picking up some Winchester, soft points for it and possibly using it during deer season, but I don't damage it.

Will I be ok?
