Well over at druganov.net they have an article about a finnish sniper in it he talks about an accurate load and he mentions 7.62x53R lapua brass - is this different form 7.62x54R brass?

Same thing, here in Finland we call it 53R (long story, can't remember all the details).

Lapua is the manufacturer. They make excellent although expensive brass.
