8mm Yugo surplus ammo

I found some of this 8mm Yugo surplus in an ammo lot, 1950's, nice stuff. Has anyone reloaded these cases ? I am going to shoot it up, then would like to use the cases for reloads. Anyone have good/bad luck with it? It was made by PP, 1956.

Re: 8mm Yugo surplus ammo

i bet that it is both corrosive and berdan primed. not even worth it. get some modern production brass.

I don't know whether or not it's corrosive...
But I am 97% sure it is Berdan primed.
So for all intents, worthless for reloading.

Thanks for the info., it is for sure corrosive, oh well brass has a scrap value I guess after I blast it all up !

That's right. It doesn't mean you can't have fun shooting it. Just remember to clean your bore every evening that you do shoot it.
