    And Brownells. On top of that, you can only buy 1 brick at a time and can't defer the hazmat and shipping between 5 brick lots. Even when prices were around $30 a brick I'd only buy 5 brick lots IF I had to buy primers online

    Both lots of '42 I tested ran 2849 and 2873 fps (muzzle) out of my VZ24 with 23" barrel. The psi ran 58,700 and 60,100. Warm, yes, but still comparable to German WWII military specifications.
