180 grain Hollow Point Prvi Partizan Ammo 500 rounds $200

  1. I shot 50 rounds of it through my Glock 20 with no issues.
     

  2. When I found this ammo on SG’s site last week they had 28 case so I ordered one.

    A few days later they still had 26 cases so I got worried about the quality and posted here to fish for opinions.

    I check the thread today and there is only one reply so I check SG and the ammo is sold out.

    So I’m confused, did anyone get any from this forum get any of this ammo or did it go somewhere else?
     
  3. Might be worth the money if the brass is any good for reloading! Seems like the low power loads should leave the brass in "like new" condition, even with the stock barrel! :)
     
  4. Well I hope that my G20 long slide runs this stuff :(

    I assume those tests were with a factory barrel, I wonder how much more I'll get with a 6.5" barrel.

  5. Just a quick range report on this ammo. No real surprises in that it's a pretty soft shooter. Accuracy is good and is about what I've seen before in underpowered 10mm that I've shot.

    This was my G29 with KKM barrel at 15 yards.

    I got 15 boxes of 10mm 180GR. FMJ from PBR at $20.50 per box(50 rounds) They didn't jack up the price like most.I haven't shot it yet, will chrono it this week.:cool:
     
  7. FYI I have shot about 500 rounds of this stuff before finding a case that had a huge split in it. Factory new loads from Privi not reloaded brass. It is soft shooting and in that specific range session I was firing about 100 rounds in a factory stock g29 I'm good condition. No other signs of over pressure to the case, no change felt in recoil or sound. Ill post pics once I get home if you'd like of the cartridge, lot # and chamber/gun. Buyer beware with this stuff. Split case scares me especially with such "light" ammo.

    This ammo shoots just fine but I would not reload it. 2 out of a box of 50 looked like this run through my G20.

    Here's a shot of the headstamp.
     
  10. I can +1 stkx66. That's exactly what my case looks like. A bit scary when you're talking about factory loaded light ammo.
     
  11. I am not a fan of the Prvi 10mm ammo. I understand they make some quality ammo in other calibers, but I am not a fan of the 10mm. For me, if it was Prvi 10mm or nothing, I'd have to think about it for a while.
     
  12. I finally made it to the range today to test this ammo in my G20 Long Slide.

    Bobby Carver set the slide up to cycle with 180+P ammo so I had some concerns

    However, it worked flawlessly and I had zero malfunctions in 2 different mags with a dirty gun.

    I’ll buy another 500 if the price is ever close to $20 a box again.
     
  13. It's crap ammo that is underpowered. In my opinion, spend the money on Starline Brass/155 grain boolets and reload some good stuff...:supergrin:
     
  14. I'll plink with it, but with the amount of case ruptures I got from it, I'm not going to hunt for the brass.
     
  15. I tested it in gelatin and the results were underwhelming.

    I also pulled some bullets and loaded them back into their original primed cases with 11.2 gr of AA#7. That got 1,194 fps, 18.75" penetration in gelatin, 0.668" max expansion, 0.617" min expansion, and 172.5 gr retained weight. Video and pics weren't very good so I didn't post a video.

    Fairly typical for a non-bonded JHP in 10mm. If someone could convince PPU to load them to real 10mm velocity, they'd be pretty decent.
