Default Poly Ammo

PCP Ammo
New polymer cased ammo. It is supposed to be cleaner, lighter and more accurate.

Weird! I'm not generally a fan of things with "PCP" in the name, but i would try that ammo in my SKS if they had it in 7.62x39.

I have some plastic cased 38 Special and 12 g, 20 g that is about 25 yrs old. Had a tendency for extractor to rip thru rim on stuck cases. Let's see how this does.

Hummmmm........I never thought twice about throwing 3" 12ga plastic ammo in my pump gun.

Why not this?

What will the movies do without that familiar tink, tink as the brass hits the marble floor.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

As Shotshells are cheaper because of the use of plastics, perhaps this will be great for those that don't reload.

BTW, great to have you back Cane,
