I heard an E-rumor that the PTR-91's are hard on brass, is it true?

Yeah I wouldn't plan on reloading the brass, even if you can find it, heh

Work up a mild load that functions and you may get to reload it a couple of times. I save my AR-10 brass to be used in my HK and 1919 stuff.

You won't have a problem if you use a port buffer. You can get them on gunbroker or at any number of other places.

Ok now one more question, why are the PTR91's hard on brass? Is it the platform or just the PTR?

The platform uses roller delayed blowback to cycle rounds that is pretty aggressive.  The chamber is fluted so that brass gets cool carbon patterns burned into it.  This carbon is hard to get off sometimes.  Some hk91 clones imprint on the brass more than others.  The brass also tends to get dings near the neck and body.  The brass also travels far.

I was watching the movie the kingdome tonight and at a couple of points people are shooting hk91s on full auto like they were airsoft guns, no recoil or control issues.  My PTR would always pound on my cheak bones.

I have one on both my CETME and my PTR91 and they work.  You can reload your brass.
