Prvi Partizan, is it any good?

Do you have any experience with Prvi Partizan ammo? If yes then please share your thoughts on it's quality. It seems to be the only reasonably priced ammo in 243 available at the moment.

It goes bang when it's supposed to.

Not match grade but it always seems to work for me back when I was buying.

I've used their 8mm Mauser ammunition and .223 Rem - no problems, goes "bang" when expected and has reasonable accuracy. No idea how their .243 ammunition is, but the stuff I've used has been good.

Made in Serbia, where reliable ammunition can mean the difference between life and death.

PP is good ammo in 7.62X39 so I imagine that it's very decent ammo in other calibers as well. In fact, I read a repost that their 7.62 flat back end is more lethal than usual boat tail as it yaws much sooner in tissue. I don't know how that translates to .243 but an interesting thought.

So long as it punches holes in paper up to 200 yds, with some degree of accuracy, that's good 'nuff for me. I'll just be happy to have something to practice with when I get my new American. I'm also counting on being able to reuse the brass a few times too.

I've used 300 rounds of their .380 through my LCP. It works great. I would try it in other calibers when the LGS has other guns to purchase.

Lots of it shot thru AR's. I've used it in 380's. As others have said; it goes bang. It is also brass and boxer primed. I've reloaded a bunch of 380 in Priv Brass.

A friend from another forum told me about the PP ammo. I have gotten reasonable accuracy with a couple of my hunting rifles. I have taken deer and hogs with it. It goes bang everytime and I have never had any problems with it. Ray

I don't use it to hunt (I would if I had to, I know some that do), but I have some for my .270. They're cheap and my gun likes them, so I've no complaints.

ppu is hit or miss, i will not use it anymore. last year i bought 2 boxes of 7mm-08 for my remington 700 bdl mountain rifle... very inconsistant.

this year i bought 3 boxes during deer season (bad idea) in my 700 they would NOT cycle if i was lucky enough to get the bolt to close after the shot i was even more lucky to get the bolt to open. i threw in some hand loads, winchesters, and remingtons all cycled fine. so im gonna get out the calipers and try to figure out what the deal is when i have time. otherwise i will pull the bullets and run them through the dies to resize them.

i would ONLY buy them if i was desperate.
