I have three cans of the OFV Indian ammo with dates of manufacture of 1974 and 1975. Is this Berdan or Boxer primed? I am going to sell it here locally, but I've been asked if the brass is reloadable & I don't know. Thanks!

Yes it is reloadable, the brass is pretty hardy, thank god it's not the Pakistan crap. Also I don't believe they started sealing with that crappy tar stuff till like the 90's

And why is that? I have personally shot over 400 rds of OFV 74/75 out of two different SA M1A's. No problems whatsoever. Also, everything I have read indicates mid 70's vintage OFV is good to go. My personal experience backs that up too.

OFV has a bad reputation for being really inconsistent but 74-75 is probably ok I think the later stuff was the bad ammo check out the 3rd sticky from the top about Indian ammo

The first rounds I ever put through my Socom was 70's OFV, it functioned well but accuracy was nothing to write home about.

The Indian ammo from the 70s was supervised by the british and is perfectly fine. I have shot and reloaded the brass many times and have never had any failures.

The 90s and 2000s stuff was crap and should not be shot.
