Privi Partizan 7.62x54r 150 gr.SP For Hunting Anyone ?

Among those of you that have used Privi Partizan 7.62x54r, 150 gr. soft point ammo for hunting, I'd apprecate hearing what you used it on and the performance it provided . Expansion ? Total pass through ? Were you generally pleased with it ? Thanks

PRVI and PSL

Bought 60 rds a year ago, for in my PSL, before I bought dies and brass, but have not killed anything with them.

They are not grouping as well as my reloads.

But...... a .311 cal 150 at 2700-2800 fps should do the job, that's .30-'06 performance, and it has to expand some, wouldn't ya think.

A hairy himalayan goat is what!

This is a nanny - the males (bulls) are a pretty impressive animal with a big puffball mane. Might post some pics when my one gets back from the taxidermist
