Privi Partizan ammo?

Any of you guys used the Privi ammo? I would like to give it a try. My mini 30 likes the brass cased ammo, especially Fiocchi but I am having trouble finding it. Like to hear thoughts on the Privi as an option.

I have shot the brass cased Privi in .303 and .223, its good ammo. I went completely with their .303 150 and 180 grain SP as my Factory go to big game hunting ammo. The brass is excellent for reloading.

haha yep Jeff, ya can see why we down this end of the world scoff at you lot having a whinge about ammo prices
The cheapest ammo I can buy for my mini 30 is Barnaul steel cased Berdan primed at 60 cents per round. Bought a heap before I saw all the talk about breaking firing pins etc.... so only use the brass boxer primed stuff now. Keeping the steel Russian stuff for the possum zombie Apocalypse

Thanks, for comments so far. Next question, is the Privi ammo magnetic? My favorite range won't let us such magnetic ammo. Fire danger due to sparks that may occur.

My .303 is Not magnetic and I don't have any .223/5.56 on hand to check. I'm going to say their M855/SS109 is because of the steel penetrator. I have never shot any of their 7.62 x 39, so I don't know about it.

PP describes their products well. likely if the 'penetrator core' was in the slug it would be noted on the box.
none of the pistol ammo I shot was steel cased or steel bullet/copper washed. reasonable priced too.
give us a report on their X39 I can't recall anyone giveing a review of the X39 here or anywhere for that matter.
