Default PMC Ammo?

Anybody want to comment on PMC ammunition? My brother-in-law wants to buy some in bulk and I've never shot any of it. He's interested in .380 ACP and I might be interested in .357/.38SP or .40 S&W.

I've used it in 9mm, 40, and 223. It shoots just dandy. Feeds fine. Leaves the gun a little dirty though

Was he using PMC? I have never had a misfire with with PMC ammo. It does smell funny and is a little dirty. I have used 22lr match, 380, 357, 45ACP and 223.

I've found it to be excellent ammo.

I purchased some on sale one time in .357, 158 gr. JSP. Shot just fine in both pistol and lever gun. I have also reloaded the brass many times and am still reloading it. (Purchased it just to get the brass).

Used to shoot a lot of pmc 45 and 556 before i took up reloading. That was back in the 80's early 90's was excellent cheap ammo back then
