    As my title says, are the two rounds equivalent? (Roughly speaking, of course.) I was wondering if the Russian round would be good for hunting Elk... :dunno:

    They are not the same cartridge.

    They are roughly similar, as is 8x57JS.

    Pick an appropriate bullet and you should be GTG.
