Thread: Ppu brass and reloading

    Ppu brass and reloading

    Please can anyone help. I know lapua is considered the best but I have some cases from PPU. As long as I carefully inspect them am I ok to reload them or is this folly?

    PPU rifle brass is pretty decent stuff (in .308 I've tried), their .44 pistol brass however is complete pants!.

    I have reloaded ppu in .223, .308 and .357 mag its not bad although I would agree with phaedra on the pistol brass it is a little soft.

    Thanks it's 308 I'm reloading. Had some Remington once fired, over 80% had cracks in the neck which made me slightly worried. Will give the PPU a second outing.

    PPU is flipping good brass.

    I have used PPU brass in .243, .308 and 30-06 and found it to be as good as any other brass.
    I have reloaded and used the .308 and 30-06 several times with no ill effects at all - so far.

    Hi they were 308 factory loads, in both 150 and 165 gr. had the fright of my life when they came out of the tumbler, could see through half of the necks and those that hadn't split had a palpable ridge on the outside as if they were about to go. Still have some of them unfired as they didn't suit the gun well.

    I had some ppu .270 win cases givento me. When I run them through the full length die. I noticed that the rim on the cases had deformed. Thus could cause a problem when extracting the spent round so they went in the bin. But I've had no problems with reloading .223 rem ppu cases. Hope this helps you.
