"Highland" Ammo - Opinions?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I picked up two boxes of "Highland" .30-30 for $26 yesterday - about 1/2 the price of Winchester. Shot 20 through my Model 94 today with outstanding results - much better groups than Win PP and ST. I have found Win HP to be about as good.

Anyone tried this stuff? Any Views? It's Yugoslav manufacture by an oufit called PPU.

I bought 2 boxes of .303 Highland and found the bolt was hard to open on about 5 rounds which we all know isn't good with enfields. Makes you wonder what the quality control standards are.
