Rifle Line Ammo Review: Excellent Ammo from Across the Pond
If you're just hearing about PPU Rifle Line ammo, don't worry; you're not alone. Many American shooters are unfamiliar with Prvi Partizan ammo because it's made overseas.
However, with ammo prices constantly increasing, Prvi Partizan (PPU) ammunition remains one of the lowest-priced options available.
So that begs the question this Rifle Line ammo review was created to answer: is it worth shooting?
Let's find out!
Prvi Partizan Ammunition has been manufacturing ammo for nearly 100 years in Uzice, Serbia. PPU produces over 400 types of handgun and rifle ammo. Supplying the Serbian police, Army, and many foreign armies.
Prvi Partizan also produces calibers for hunting and target shooting, which is where PPU Rifle Line Ammo comes into play.
PPU also manufactures GROM ammunition for big game hunting, which utilizes a soft point copper alloy bullet with a small lead core.
The Match Line is for shooters seeking sub-MOA results with their rifles while target shooting. It uses a hollow point boat tail (HPBT) bullet. Lapua, Norma, Hornady, and Sierra popularized this type of bullet because it increased its aerodynamic efficiency and accuracy.
PPU brass is good stuff for reloading, and they manufacture cartridges and bullets you'll need for your handloads.
Despite what some might say, Rifle Line is not military surplus ammo, not that I have anything against shooting milsurp ammo. All I'm saying is that PPU ammunition is good ammo at a great price.
Because it's inexpensive and non-corrosive, buying it in bulk is one of the best decisions you can make, and you don't have to take my word for it. Many Ammo.com customers have left excellent reviews regarding Prvi Partizan Rifle Line ammo.
Zman10915 left this review of PPU 7.62x39 123gr SP ammo:
"Having purchased nearly a case of this ammo at a local retailer in Boise, I have run this ammunition through a couple of weapons, both of which couldn't be any more different in nature and operation, only to find out that this round, which resembles a "mini 30-30 or 32 win " can only be best described as the best ammunition I have used commercially produced to date. It feeds very well, with NO hangups, no ejection malfunctions, and quite frankly- very smooth-even in comparison to any other spire tip traditional "AK-47" round to date. This ammunition has not yet been analyzed for speed, etc, as I did not take a chronograph with me when shooting this ammunition. I would recommend anybody who owns a firearm that is chambered for this round to try it. Very nice, indeed."
Jim also said: "It worked perfectly in my Yugo SKS, cycled and ejected with no problems, military-grade ammo."
As you can tell, very few people regret buying Rifle Line ammo, so I can confidently say you won't either.
Rifle Line has a wide selection of rifle calibers, including some that few other manufacturers make and are very difficult to find.
Rifle Line ammo is excellent for target shooting as it's accurate, reliable, and reasonably priced. It's great for stocking piling for when SHTF or an enjoyable day at the range.
The HPBT and soft-point bullets are great for hunting, whether using a .303 British or a 30-06.
These rounds are comparable to other major manufacturers, such as Hornady, Remington, and Winchester.
If you shoot 8x56mmR, 7.92x33mm Kurtz, 7.65x53mm Argentine, or 8mm Lebel, the PPU Rifle Line might be your only option for factory ammo.
While I didn't find many, here are some drawbacks to Rifle Line ammo.
