I've shot quite a bit in 7.62x54r and a small amount of 7.5x55. Both performed quite well, the 180 gr. s.p. in x54r is my favorite hunting load in that round. It is boxer primed and noncorrosive,and the brass is of excellent quality for reloading.

Apparently, the people down at stars and stripes tell me it doesn't stretch enough to be a good reloading round... However, prevailing opinion is it reloads well. I find the ammo is the cheapest out there save for milsurp or steel cased stuff, accurate, relatively clean, and non corrosive. I have used their 7.62x54R, .303 brit, 9x19 and 7.62x25. I have found my two groove rifled No. 4 enfield, even with its beat bore and cracked stock, shoots amazingly well with the 174 grain FMJBT they have. I'm waiting, probably in vain, for them to import plinking level 9x19. They get my unequivocal support for purchase.

For your other question... i know no lower, except possible igman. You can find some igman 8mm around. But not much. 8mm for now is a bit dry: I'm living off a couple hundred 70's yugos and 50's turk.

Privi-Partizan is top notch ammo, especially for the price. You can't beat the brass for reloading, even with the dollar-apiece Norma stuff. Gets a :thumbsup: in my book.

Good stuff as othrs have stated. I have some in 30 Carbine, including soft points. If I am correct, Priv partisan is the same outfit that sent us the Hansen ammo from Yugoslavia back in the good old days of the eighties.

Not all prvi ammo is boxer primed and some is corrosive. Some of the older stuff allways keep a eye on what your shooting.
You're of course, talking about the Yugo HB from the 70's, red primer sealed, stamped "nny" which is corrosive. This stuff isn't packaged as Privi-Partizan though.
