High powered rifle cartridge. — In-game description

7.62x54mmR Rounds are a type of ammunition in DayZ Standalone. They are found individually, packed in boxes, or pre-loaded in magazines. Empty the box to receive 20 usable 7.62x54mmR rounds.

The round is a Soviet-made full size rimmed rifle cartridge for eastern rifles and machine guns. Ballistically, the round is similar to the .308 Winchester but is only found in East Military locations in-game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 7.62x54mmR Rounds was temporarily renamed from 7.62mm Round(s) to 7.62x51mm Round(s) in an early DayZ Standalone patch. It was reverted shortly after.
  • This was again changed in 0.55, when 7.62mm Rounds was renamed to 7.62x54mmR Rounds and an actual 7.62x51mm cartridge, .308 Winchester, was added.
  • The real-world counterpart of every weapon using 7.62x54mmR Rounds in DayZ Standalone through 0.54 was available in 7.62x54mmR, while only that of the B95 was/is available in .308. Despite this, in 0.55 the LongHorn joined the Blaze 95 in changing to .308.
  • Box is an image of a pre-cold war Soviet ammo tin, which holds 300 rounds of 7.62x54R, on stripper clips.
  • The 'R' in the name refers to the cartridge being 'Rimmed' at the base.
