I was thinking about getting some for deer hunting. Anyone use this ammo? What kind of accuracy are you getting with it? I noticed that it has a round nose bullet instead of pointed. I'm not sure if that is a plus or minus though. It's also about half the price of the Rem./Win./Fed.

Most likely if its prvi ammo, it will be boxer primed, and reloadable... if its cheap its worth it, just for that fact alone.

Should be full copper jacket, not bi-metal. I know the PPU fmj I have is non magnetic. But, expansion for hunting might suffer if it doesn't have relief cuts in the jacket to allow full expansion. For hunting, I would spend a few extra bucks and get Hornady z or V-Max, or SST, just for the proven performance. Or test the PPU before actually using it as it would suck to have the round zip right thru the target and it bleed out for a mile and never recover it.

I have some ppu soft point but its not the round nose flavor, it is a pointed soft point. Its brass case/boxer primed and its relabeled from cabelas as herters brass case but has the ppu headstamp. Ive not run it through my saiga yet as i decided to go with the hornady sst rounds for hunting white tail. When i get around to it ill post results though!
