Prvi Partizan is Serbia's top ammunition manufacturer. In business since 1927, the company employs nearly a thousand people in its longtime home of Uzice. Until 1935, the company was housed in a military barracks and worked extensively on building and refurbishing military rifles. Other products included guns and ammo for hunters. During World War II, the company's production lines, concealed in other facilities, engaged in clandestine production of weapons to arm Yugoslav resistance fighters (partisans) in combat against Nazi occupation forces. After the war, the company became state-owned and gained its present name, Prvi Partizan, in recognition of its contribution to the resistance. In 1998, six years after the fall of communist Yugoslavia, the company reverted to the private enterprise structure under which it operates today.
The company has found great success in the 21st century, exporting millions of cartridges all over the world from its three ammunition plants. The company makes ammo for 400 different cartridge types. For some gun owners, the Prvi Partizan name simply signifies good ammo at good prices; however, for many vintage guns chambered for older cartridges, Prvi Partizan represents the only source of new, high quality factory production.

Review by Sir Charles
Functions great in my H&R single shot Handi-Rifle and I have bullet samples that nearly doubled in size after shooting into soft pine wood. I believe that the blunt tip helps with more expansion. I get about 3 inch groups at 100 yards which is plenty good enough for hunting whitetails. The Boxer primers are a must for any rifle that is not in the military class. If you have a standard hunting rifle, buy cartridges with Boxer primers or you're gonna have trouble with misfires or a broken firing pin.
