Reload PTR-91 brass?

Can brass fired in the JLD Enterprises PTR-91 be reloaded? I know other G3/HK-91 clones have a fluted chamber that makes reloading brass run through them difficult or impossible, but is this true of the PTR-91?

    I've reloaded HK91 brass (mainly Lake City) over 10 times/case with no problem for 25 years.
    I didn't even switch from large base to small base dies, until I switched from HK to other semi auto's.
    Just maintain case length and watch for split neck's after they have been shot a while.
    The burns on the outside of the case doesn't hurt the case, probably reduce chamber wear it you clean them.

    I've heard it's pretty much impossible to reload brass from a delayed blowback rifle. Interesting.

    I also have reloaded brass fired from a PTR-91 several times. You can still see some of the flutes but they perform as new. I watch for signs of case failure during each reloading session.
