    I have given some once fired .243 ppu brass to a mate for reloading.According to him it is good quality brass

    Just worked up a load for 6.5x55. I have alway settled with an average variation of 20 to 30fps. This brass has found a sweet spot which gave me an average variation of 11fps over 10 rounds. The jury is still out though. I will be closely inspecting it after each firing. I hope it will last long enough to make it worth using.

    I'm pretty sure PPU headstamped brass is different to NNY. I have found NNY are very slightly heavier and I am getting a little more pressure from them. Would be interested in anyone elses findings.

    I've had NNY and PPU stamped brass in .308, the NNY is certainly heavier and not a bad case.

    I also had 100 PPU stamped .44mag cases, terrible brass, several case neck splits areter 2 or 3 firings using a mild indoor 25m load. Using the same load in StarLine cases I have cases that have been fired more than 10 times with almost no stretching or any sign of wear.

    Dont worry about longevity tackleberry, I use ppu cases fro my .223 with a pretty hot load for the 50gr ballistic tips and they are still going strong 10 reloads later.
    Ive had one case neck split so far out of 100 i bought, so more than happy, also the case weights have been pretty consistent.

    I've used it in .222, .243, .308 and 30-06 and found it as good as any other brass I've used before.

    I'm gonna be the odd one out I know I tried reloading it with my .243 and I found it pretty rubbish to be honest, maybe it was a bad batch! But same load with other brass i, e Norma was fine just my experience anyway!

    I use PPU in 7x57, 6.5x55, 30-06, and 243. All good.~Muir
