    Prvi Partizan Powder Mystery

    I have two rifles .308 W. One of them is performing very good, delivering minute groups or better with the Prvi Partizan 168 grs. HPBT. Using the same ammo from the same box, the other rifle gave me groups of 4 inch or more.
    But, changing to Norma or Winchester ammo - no problem.
    I opened a PP cartridge and found it was loaded with a sort of ball or spherical powder. 5 cartridges were then stripped and relaborated with 44 grs. N-140 Vithavouri powder. The result was amazing. Minute groups from both rifles !
    This test is done over and over again, there is no doubt in my mind about the realities. I certainly know that powder weight and type has influence on accuracy, but not at this level. Is there anyone who have had the same problems with this type of Prvi Partizan cartridges and are willing to do the same experiment as to confirm my discovery ? And my be tell me why some rifles are completely allergic to the ball powder ?

    You changed more than the powder. At a minimum, you removed and reseated the bullet. What was you exact procedure?

    Hammering out the bullet with a RCBS inertia hammer, replacing the powder, seating bullet to the same depth. No resizing.
