    Prvi partizan ammunition

    Hi All,
    Need some help on PPU ammunition. Got a bit fed up with the price of some of the top end ammo out there, so I thought I would try some PPU in my Remmy 308. 13.50 a box. I am getting 1 1/2in groups at 100m off of quad sticks, almost the same as Federal ammo. I have not used them on live quarry as yet. Can anyone tell me how they perform on let's say - a well placed heart/lung shot. I am pleased they are cheap but would rather spend more if you think they won't do the job properly. Hope someone can point me in the right direction.
    All the best
    John

    Used to use them in my .308. Sometimes it would shoot well other times it would not. I had one shot that dropped 1.5 foot short of the target . That said never had any problems with them expanding and killing the animals.

    I then sold my .308 and got my .243 The .243 does not like PPU at all.

    I have now moved on to Geco ammo (18 a box) which certainly looks much better made and shoots way better through my rifle.

    I shoot 7mm, 6mm, 308 and 6.5mm PPU bullets in handloads. My son in law killed two good whitetails with 165 grain 30-06 PPU factory. His step father killed one with 30-06 using handloads with the same bullet. My daughter shot a good buck using factory 100 grain 243. All died well and quick. I shot two large mulie does with 140 grain 7mm bullet in handloads. Both were lung shots and they dropped within 10 yards of where they were hit. I shot a large whitetail doe with a head on shot with the same load. All three of these were beyond 150 yards.~Muir
