Default 2001 prvi partizan 308 ammo, anybody here shoot it.

Local shop got a batch of it in from a widow. 20 round white box, English writing, 145 grain bullet and sealed primer. bright, clean and no corrosion on case.

price was 10 bucks a box, guessing boxer primed and non-corrosive primer. so anybody here shot any of it and what did you think of it.

Not sounding familiar, can u throw up a couple of pics?

Thought I had tried just about every brand and type of surplus and cheaper commercial 308/ 762 NATO.

I have a few thousand rounds of their 175 gr match ammo...My one rifle loves it.

I don't shoot any of the lighter stuff.

I have 500 rounds of the same stuff you do just a later date. Very flimsy boxes. They came in an ammo can. The stuff shoots great through my C308. 21/2 MOA or so. Always goes bang, the brass is great for reloading (better that hornady) and it's very consistent. Never an issue.

The original version has extruded powder.

I think something happened to their powder plant and later versions have Belgian-made ball powder with the lot number of the powder inside one of the box flaps and they have switched Belgian powders at least once.

The bullet design is based on the Frankfort Arsenal NATO reference cartridge bullet.

Agree on all points. Shoots well from the M77 and the Ishapore 2A1 did well with it. Still have 200 or so rounds when I was getting it for $11 a box

I have a nice stash of the 2010 lot.
White box, boxer primed brass.

Great stuff. Really solid brass for loading as well

The white box Privi has aleays shot very well in my FALs. It usually comes in battle packs. They sell the exact same ammo in a fancier blue commercial looking box for more money so you are paying for packaging. If buying Privi no need to buy anything more than the generic white box.

Itís good surplus ammo Bill. Just as good as Port or SA IMO, my Fals have eaten plenty.

Look inside the box flaps and see which powder is labeled.

Pull one bullet and see what type of powder it is.
