    PRVI Ammo

    Has anyone had any practical experience of PRVI Partizan rounds in .243 for deer stalking?

    I use Federal at the moment and that works well in my Varberger but is expensive to use on foxes and I want an all rounder to be able to put through the gun at varying bullet weights.

    The couple of reports I have are mixed.

    I find it ok. Better in 90gn than 100 I think but both acceptable in my rifle. Best to buy a box and test them out, you'll only be eleven quid worse off and maybe better in the long run.

    I use 100gn Prvi in my .243 Steyr SSG for Roe and Muntjac. They work just fine. For foxes I prefer to use homeloaded 75gn V-Max but I have never had a charlie live to complain about being shot with a Prvi.

    I've tried the 90g in my T3, pretty good on Roe & fox.

    My only dislike was they were a bit on the tight side (close'n the bolt).

    I'm back to Federal, that said you'll not beat the Prvi on price.

    Bear in mind though you only get what you pay for !!!!

    Uncle Buck, there was a batch of .243 ammo that came into the country early last year that was tight to chamber, not so tight they couldn't be used but a bit out of the ordinary to say the least.
    That was about the time they changed the head stamp from the Russian 'MRY' to Serbian 'PPU' I have had rounds since then and they are OK.

    Thanks for the advice EMcC, a bit freaky nonetheless.

    Its too hit & miss for me, some batches had reliable 2" groups fine for centre shot fox @ 100yds , there abouts, but not good enough for anything else. It made me lack confidence & wary where the lead would hit. sometimes 2" high, then low , Then 3" to one side..f thattttt!! ! Ok what its made for ...... military use, & malicious wounding.
