If I had the money, PMC BRONZE .223 is all I would shoot. There's 1 store left where I live that sells them for $8 a box. The price went up to $12-$14 a box of 20 Everywhere else. So that 1 store OS always sold out and soon they will raise the price as well.

I've used 9 mm & .40 S&W. I've found it to be quite good.

I've used plenty of it in both 9 MM as well as .45 ACP with zero issues. I can't buy the brass and assemble the components as cheap as I can buy PMC. Their brass has a good amount of reloadability to it as well. PMC used to be Pan Metal Corporation when it was an American company, and was located in the Los Angeles area. It was then closed and sold to an off shore operation, and the ammo is now manufactured in Korea.

I have always had good to excellent results from PMC. An acquaintance of mine set up the factory. If it ran like he runs his ammunition business it will continue to be good quality. My only complaint is it is not US made. I will opt to buy ammunition that is made by my countrymen at a fair and affordable cost. Normally I try to buy Federal, from the Lake City Plant and or Blackgunammo.com, which is the civilian side of Mast Technologies located at Lake City. Fiocchi is another good one. Buy from your brothers and employ them when possible.

Cabelas by me, (Glendale, Az.), had a unadvertised sale this weekend on PMC .45 ACP ammo. I picked up 1,000 rounds. The thing that kills you on heavy pistol ammo like .45 ACP is shipping. That's why I always try to buy it locally. The sales tax usually winds up to be far less than shipping costs. I have also found the places that include shipping with ammo orders are not as cheap as others. They've got to pay for it some way.

They are the exact opposite of these "made for TV" nick knacks they sell on a lot of these Saturday morning infomercials, where the item price is about half of what they nail you for "shipping and handling".

I have shot a lot of it and I have never had a failure with it. I have found the .308 and .30-06 ammo to be very accurate out to 400 yards, and have used it hunting with good results.

I buy almost all of my ammo bulk off the internet. Shipping is included in the advertized price, no sales tax, no extra haz mat fees. Just enter the card and in 4 days, the brown truck of happiness pulls into my yard.

i have used the PMC brand over the years in various pistol and rifle calibers with good results. currently i shoot quite a bit in 223 in my AR and have had no problems at all. seems to burn pretty clean also as cleaning when i'm done doesn't take long. so i do reccomend it myself.

Any brand can have a bad primer or other problem. I have a 223 Winchester White on my bench with a dead primer. I had one Fiochi 45acp with a bad primer. There were a couple more but it is a rare occurrence. I had a CCI Lawman with an overcharge destroy an aluminum framed 1911. Odd thing is I have never had a hand load with a bad primer.
