Just wondering if anyone has used Prvi Partizan bullets? Bought a box of their factory ammo when I bought my 9.3x62mm, and they seemed to work fine on paper. Wondered if anyone else has any experience with 'em...

I've used their loaded ammo in the 7.62X54 several times. Worked fine and provided decent enough accuracy in stock Mosin's. It used to be rather inexpensive at gun shows, but has been rather scarce for about a year or so. ???

Graf and Sons online sells the loaded stuff cheap, and the bullets even cheaper.

Hi Dakota,

I have a CZ 9.3MM with a full length stock and I like the Prvi 285 Gr. Ammo. very much. When I first got it I shot the Norma 232 gr. stuff at about $50 a box. It was fairly accurate but I had a bullet recovered from a large (large for Texas is 175#) whitetail that did the job but was about 40 grains when recovered. It worked but did not penetrate all the way through like I thought it would at 100 yds. I guess the Vulcan bullets are not very tough. I wouldn't use them on bigger stuff. I loaned it to a friend with a box of the 285 Prvi ammo. and he took it to Canada. Bagged a moose and a caribou with one shot kills. Brought it back scratched and caked with mud but it cleaned up ok. What do you expect when you loan a rifle? I guess I was lucky to get it back at all wihout it being confiscated by the Canadian government. I Started using the Prvi ammo from Graf & Sons and found it to easily shoot 1" with my Burris 3x9 scope at 100 yds. from the bench. I shot a big Oryx with it a few months ago, about 300 pounds, in the chest at about 50 yards broadside. It ran about 40 yds and expired. The bullet destroyed the heart and lungs and penetrated the opposite side with about a 50 cent size exit hole. It was not hard to locate the Oryx! I am convinced that for price, accuracy, and performance, the Prvi 285 Gr. ammo. is what I will use form now on in my 9.3 CZ. I love this rifle and caliber. Enjoy man!

I got some 45, 50 and 55 grain bullets to try in my .22 K Hornet and had them stick fast in the seating die. I found they run .225" diameter, about half a thousandth larger than the throat of my RCBS seating die. Once loaded they shot OK.
