@ Mitho
Are thePrivi Partizan cases Boxer primed,
If they are , Save them, and if you dont reload, swap them with someone who does.

Yes, I think they are boxer primed. Federal 9x18 ammo is also boxer primed and I already have around 100 cases with me :dance:

The photo of the deformed case is not a problem to the reloader.
He will just pull it apart with a bullet puller , resize the case and re-assemble it.
Or if nothing more, Just salvage the powder and bullets from this kind of damaged ammo.

Please google out "Ammo Basics" and you will find lot of reading material. Also see various threads in the ammo section and you will find lot of information.

FMJ is full metal jacket. Its a type of bullet in which lead bullet core is covered with copper jacket. This is the most common type of cartridge that you will come across.

Grain is a unit of measurement for weight. There are 7000 grains in a lb. In ammo, it is commonly used for indicating the weight of bullet (not cartridge). eg, 115 grain FMJ means the bullet weight in that particular cartridge is 115 grain and the bullet type is full metal jacketed.
The quantity of propellant in a cartridge is also indicated in grains. eg, 5.2 grains of Blue Dot. But that information concerns reloaders only and is not needed by a common shooter.
