"PP, PPU or ППУ Prvi Partizanski [zavod] ad Užice ("First Partizan [factory] at Užice") (1941; 1947-Present) - Užice, Serbia. On September 24, 1941 the FOMU facility was liberated from the Germans, who had wrecked the machinery and burned down the administration building. The ammunition production machinery and tool shop were moved to an underground vault under the National Bank and the other machinery was dispersed to the surrounding towns. An explosion on November 22, 1941 that killed 130 workers forced its closure. The factory moved back to the FOMU facility in 1944. It was renamed Prvi Partizanki zavod ad Užice (PPU) on September 5, 1947."
"Prvi Partizan-Namenska Proizvodnja, Titovo, Uzice 31000, Yugoslavia. These are actually Cyrillic letters equal to 'PPU' in the Western alphabet."
going to post there too thanks!
Looks like 8MM to me as well.
Prvi Partizan (Yugoslavia)
Probably 8mm Mauser.
Probably Berdan primed.
Look in the case and see if it's got one central flash hole (Boxer) or 2 (sometimes 1 or 3) that are slightly off center (Berdan).
In my experience, good ammunition and components.
I agree, Berdan.
Separate names with a comma.
