    HABCAN replied to a thread Ppu brass in Our Town
    Post #5, post #20.......+1!!! Since our Canadian CIL excellent quality brass is no more, replaced by questionable IVI, PPU has become a faithful equivalent. My only gripe with it so far is that those cartridges based on the .308/.30-06 head/rim size...

    Followed this thread for 8 years now. Voted yes today, bought a 77-357 several years ago. Yep it was pricey, sucks as a bench gun. When .22 long rifle was hard to get, this was my solution. A wonderful rifle for walking around making quick...
