My form letter to PPU to maybe get them to make brass and or ammo.

info@ppu-usa.com

Dear TR&Z USA Trading Co.,

As a owner of a Czech VZ-52 (7,62x45) finding ammunition can be difficult in the United States. We have only the second hand market with highly corrosive surplus from the 1950 's and 1960's. Would you please consider communicating with PPU the want and demand for the making a run of this ammunition and or brass (reloading dies are out there). PPU has done this in the past for such items as 8x50R Lebel to which I bought several hundred rounds of. With 7,62x45 PPU would be the only supplier and would sell very well with the demand that has existed for years. I for one would post PPU product news on the many Internet Forums I am a member of.

Please again consider making brass and or complete ammunition for this great rifle.

Best Regards,

Note sent. I have contacted Sellier & Bellot and Prvi both in the past on this round and 5.45x39, and I have always received a "not interested at this time" response.

You have to think they would sell as much as 7.35 Carcano and 8 Lebel, no?

I feel the same way about 9mm largo. Seems like none of the makers want to produce it anymore.

I talked to a friend of ours that is a small company that remanufactures ammo for several local shooting ranges. He uses the same equipment as Hornady uses for small batches and agreed to make it if I had enough orders or buy the whole batch myself. He can get bullet cases from starline for .12 each and whatever bullets we want in them. Downside is he only wants to do 100 1000 round cases at a time 😳. He said he may know someone else who could do smaller batches but since I do not know them, I passed.

Has anyone contacted starline brass? They seem to have some oddball caliber brass.

We did this a couple of years back. They said there is not enough "need" for this caliber. Never hurts to re-ask.
