Has anyone used Graf and Sons .303 ammo?  I’m interested in buying it first to shoot then to reload.  I’ve recently gotten into reloading after buying a Dillon automated press.

I have not tried it, but I can say from experience that the Hornady 174 gr BTHP bullets shoot very well in my No. 4 rifles and PPU brass is probably the best .303 Brass made currently.

Seconded - PPU is (probably) the best, non-military, brass in the world.

Win, Rem etc are manufactured towards the bottom end of SAAMI specifications whilst PPU is nearer the top end.

A comparison of Win and PPU brass (guess which is which)

PPU brass is great! I use it almost exclusively

Thanks you, for the replies.  I was unsure of the PPU brass but you guys have helped with my decision to buy the Graf & Sons ammo.

I’m tracking the number of reloads on a 50 round batch of PPU brass.  Now at 12 reloads (neck sizing only) and the brass still looks great.  It will soon get its first partial length resize and trim, then begin the neck sizing cycles again.

PPU is very good. I swapped to PPU from Remington, which was of limited value for reloading. The last batch of Remington that I bought I decided not to use, as I found a couple of the new cases had small splits in the neck area; (these are unfired cases). So now they are a reserve lot.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I'm up to 8 on some of mine using Partial full length resizing.
No signs of problems yet.
