I am looking at getting some 45-70 to shoot and then reload. Has anybody used their brass? Good or bad? Thanks

I've shot a bit of their M1 ammo and reloaded it. Granted I was loading it for service rifle so I wasn't overly picky, but I found their brass pretty good. It seemed a lot like using surplus brass. The Chechs have been making weapons and ammo for along time.

Thanks to you both. I'll try some of both, shoot the Prvi and reload both!

Their ammunition doesn't always shoot very good but I have had good results with the brass.

Have used, and continue to use it in harder to find calibers; 7.5x54 French, 7.5x55 Swiss, and like it in 6.5x55, because it uses the correct rim diameter as compared to the smaller Rem/Win. Their 7.62x54R brass reloads well, but is much lighter than Norma when I compared the two.

Might try their 7.7x58 one day, if I get tired of trimming, and fire-forming 06 brass, and to see how it's dimensioned. Bottom line, Privi brass has worked well for me, without any surprises. Good luck.

I've sure taken a liking to it as well. Just got a shipment of 500gr hard cast yesterday so I'll be busy tonight.

Giving serious thought to casting my own.

I have considered it too. Haven't jumped into it yet though.

Cut my teeth casting muzzle loading projectiles, shotgun slugs, and .30 caliber rifle bullets when I was a teenager... Never let up, and now cast for every caliber I have, aside from 5.56 and 6mm bullet. Many years ago, lead was practically free/was free, and you could easily get Linotype from print shops to alloy up some nice slugs.

If you can find lead cheap, you will save a tremendous amount of $, especially for heavier projectiles. Later you might like to start tinkering with custom lubes, and play around with sizing options. Want to shoot .359", 158 grain lead bullets from your 92FS, no problem. Have a revolver that likes a certain sizing, at a softer alloy than most casters will make, go for it. Have a shot-out "06" milsurp? Try using a long bearing surface, .312" cast bullet driven to around 2000 fps, and see how she shoots.

Heck, I would hunt small game with a 30/30 or 06 loaded with 150 grain cast bullets driven to bout 1000 fps. Casting opens up a whole new dimension to reloading, and is so satisfying having a billion different variable to play with. Jump in, the waters fine.

A year or so ago, I was given 60 rounds of Priv "Match" .308 ammo, for evaluation. Since shooting it and reporting findings, I've reloaded the Priv brass 3 or 4 times, and consider it as good as my Winchester "same lot" brass and better than my GMM "same lot" brass.

Bolt rifle. Moderate load (168 SMK, 42.2 gr. Reloder 15, COAL 2.791" (about 14 thou jump), CCI LR primers. Brass is FL sized, and has been trimmed at least once. Annealing marks still visible. Primer pockets still tight.
