Any body have any experience in shooting and hand loading this ammo, see a lot of it around last week at the gun show, and didn't know anything about it.

I believe that is Prvi Partisan. I am not sure of the primer type. Is it brass cased? I think I have some of that brass and if I recall correctly, it is good to go.

I didn't know what PPU stood for either when I bought 100 rds. of once fired brass for $5 last week. What I DO know is that you don't want to try to decap it with a standard decapping pin. I broke mine trying. Apparrently those cases have crimped primers and need to be decapped with a Lee decapping tool or a hardened steel decapping pin. The brass seems to be of excellent quality.

Ppu

I know only something .224-, .30-, 9mm-, .357- and 9,3 PPU-bullets. They are not high-quality products, but ofcourse cheap.

PPU Brass - Reloads

I have successfully re-loaded many .223/5.56 rounds using range pick-up PPU brass. I de-capped with my standard RCBS SB sizing/de-capping die and have not had any problems.

Prvi Partisan, makes good ammo (made in Serbia) the brass isn't the best in the market, and yes it is a crimped primer, so decaping and re-priming might be a problem. But last year when 62 grain FMC was hard to find as hen's teeth, Prvi Partisan was available from Midway. I am not shooting compitition, but for coyotes and and men they will do what they are made for, kill!
