I have a question about a couuple of European ammo brands, particularly with respect to the quality of the brass for reloading purposes. I am looking to buy some 8x57 Mauser ammo, and would really prefer not to spend $34+ a box on it.
I've found two very affordable boxer primed, non-corrosive, reloadable brands: Czech-made "Sellier & Bellot" and Yugo-made "Prvi Partizan". They have essentially the same softpoint 196 grain bullet, and are 1/2 the price of the Remington or Federal brand ammo.
Do any of you have experience with either of these brands and with reloading their brass?
