I went out to the range last week and picked up some 5.56 brass,
Its stamped PPU 05
What is it,is it good brass to reload. or is it junk?
It looks good.

That's Prvi Partisan, made in Serbia. It's decent brass.

This website http://cartridgecollectors.org/headstampcodes.htm says: Prvi Partizan, 31000 Titovo, Uzice, Yugoslavia

I can't comment on the quality.

Heck, you don't hardly need a headstamp to identify PPU. Just look for the annealing ring around the shoulders! It's like a rainbow!
