  • "PRVI" bullets.

    Has anybody here ever heard of or used "Prvi" or "PRVI" bullets?
    Are they any good?

    Good ammo, used it in a 8mm Mauser and 7.5 Swiss. Boxer brass, although the primer pockets were a bit big when I reloaded the Swiss stuff. In some of the esoteric calibers, this is really your best bet for ammo and reloadable brass.

      I've got brass for my .308, I'm just having a difficult time locating bullets.
      Shipping often adds +/- $10 to an online order.
      I just found a local supply of "Prvi" bullets at an acceptable price. Only difference is they're flat base instead of boat tail.
      If bullet perform is acceptable on deer/hogs, I can live without the boattail.
      I've been shooting Sierra "Game King" and they are awesome out of my AR10.

        I tried PRVI in .303 and they shot o.k. Brass seemed thin when reloading. I chronographed some and they were several hundred fps below where they should be. Don't know how the bullets are, but flat base is a +.

          I have used factory ammo, bullets for reloading in 7x57 and 9.3x62. Brass and bullets work well.

            Thanks pashooter!
            I might give these a whirl.

              jimbo, my AR10 loves the Sierra 150 grain BTSP.

              What is the "plus" to the flat base?

                I've used PRVI Partizan's 139 gn SP in 7x57R to shoot a few pigs. It seemed to work fine. It is just a plain cup and core SP but that is all you really need given sufficient bullet weight and placement. I'd happily use it again.

                I've shot their .303 174 gn FMJ at the range, and a bit of their 173 SP 7x57R, and it seemed accurate too.

                I quite like the brass for reloading too.

                  I think it's cheap Eastern Euopean stuff. Seen it, never tried it
