I have had my MP43 for 35 years. The only ammo available then that I found was expensive and corrosive. I started to form 8mmK brass from 308 and 30-06 brass and loaded sierra 125 gn bullets. worked great. then the bolt started to roll in the receiver and jam the gun. No one had any answers. I put the gun away. I recently bought a case of PPU ammo and started to work on the gun myself. added metal to the bolt carrier and stopped the bolt from rolling. worked on the magazines fitting them to the gun. last time out gun was perfect for all 120 rds.


My reloads for my gun work perfectly. PPU are not as good. But PPU brass is now my reloads.
