    Default Privi partizan brass

    Wal, l couldn't find 7x57 brass.

    Graf's had Norma, but it war reel spendy.

    And, the Privi Partizan, which, was ON SALE, so buyed a hunnert of'em.

    I've loaded them all and fired some. I've noticed they are HARD.

    Nearly impossible to uniform the primer pockets. The primers were hard to seat deep enough. If I didn't uniform them I don't think they would seat deep enough.

    None of these New Brass required trimming, but chamfering was tuff too.

    I'm loading them with cast bullets, reduced loads, which was the reason for buying them, and I've noticed they didn't fully fire-form.

    Anyone else used PP brass? How did it work for you?

    THANKS

    I've used PP range brass and noticed the same thing about the primer pockets.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    I use a drill motor to run the uniformer, and the cases got hot. Also, hadda use a rubber glove to hold the case and keep it from turning.

    I can see where the necks and shoulders have been annealed, but brudder, they are HARD. How long they will last remains to be seen. I'm thinking they will work longer with the low pressure loads I'm using

    Privi is well though of on C&R forums because of its toughness. Maybe you should try annealing.

    I'd probably make it worse.

    I'll see how well it works over time.

    I use Pri brass in my 7 mauser, I find the primer pockets tough but I've time to work the pockets out with my tool. I turn the necks as well.....I like the brass nonetheless.
