    Brass questions .243

    Hello been sorting out brass this evening

    1. R P ( I assume this is remmington)
    2. SAKO
    3. nny ( no idea what this is)
    4. RWS
    5. PMC (no idea what this is)
    6. Hornaday
    7. FC ( Federal I think)

    looking forward to your responses.

    RP is Remington Peters, nny is PPU, I have found none of it to be bad brass, some may have preferences but all is fit for purpose but some may last longer than others.

    I didn't see any of that in his list !
    Lapua the most expensive brass ! it does the same job as any other, but maybe for a few more reloadings than some of the others ;-)

    I love it when I see this as according to my Norma 2007 catalogue Lapua is one of the makes that Norma makes brass for. I would seem that they also make the Nosler, Sako and RWS brass amongst others. On page 47 is a freeze of 23 photos of different brass head stamps that Norma make.

    NNY. rvi Partizan-Namenska Proizvodnja, Titovo, Uzice 31000, Yugoslavia. These are actually Cyrillic letters equal to "PPU in the Western alphabet.
    RWS .
    Rheinisch-Westfälischen Sprengstoff-Fabriken this one is good for reloading
    RP . Reminton peters

    In 1919, a year after Finland declared independence from the Russian Empire, the Suojeluskuntain Yliesikunnan Asepaja (Civil Guard Supreme Staff Gun Works) opened in a former Helsinki brewery to repair private arms and recondition Russian military rifles for Finnish service. The rifle repair shop became financially independent of the civil guard about 1921; and the Government Valmet rifle factory opened at Tourula in 1925. The Suojeluskuntain Yliesikunnan Asepaja moved from Helsinki to an ammunition factory in Riihimäki on 1 June 1927 and reorganized as SAKO in the 1930s. Sako started exporting pistol cartridges to Sweden in the 1930s and continued manufacturing submachinegun cartridges through World War II.[1] In 1987, state-owned Valmet and SAKO fused into SAKO-VALMET, with ownership split evenly betweenNokia and Valmet. After several organizational shifts in state ownership, the SAKO name remained for the privately owned gun- and cartridge-producing company located in the cities of Riihimäkiand Jyväskylä (former Valmet factory in Tourula, which was later closed). The company now has a strategic partnership with Beretta Holdings.
