Prvi Partizan (Serbian Cyrillic: Први Партизан, Serbian pronunciation: [přviː partǐzaːn]) is a Serbian manufacturer of ammunition and handloading components, based in Užice, Serbia.

The company was originally founded in 1928 under the name FOMU - Fabrika Oružja i Municije Užice.[3]

The company produces ammunition for civilian and military consumers in a variety of calibers in various loadings. Several ammunition articles list Prvi Partizan as one of the few sources of certain unusual cartridges, such as the 7.92×33mm Kurz cartridge used in the StG 44 rifle, and the 7.65×53mm Argentine cartridge. In early 2009, the company introduced the 8mm Lebel, becoming the first commercial manufacturer in decades to produce it.

Prvi Partizan cartridges carry the headstamp "ППУ" ("PPU"),[4] which stands as abbreviation of the company's name in Cyrilic letters, "Први партизан Ужице" ("Prvi partizan Užice"). Prvi Partizan has made ammunition with the head-stamps PP and PPU.[4]
