Never in rifle or pistol ammo, but I have had shotgun shells made entirely out of plastic before (no brass cap on the end). They worked fine in pump guns, but didnt do too well in autos. Federal made them back in the early 90's if I recall right.

I used to have some (West) German 7.62 NATO practice ammo, from the 60's or 70's.
This used a whilte nylon-looking plastic bullet and case, with a brass head

I had some 5.56 fmj grey plastic case ammo. The bottom of the case was brass about 1/4" up. They were alot lighter and functioned fine. You just could not fire standard brass and then load the plastic ammo until after the rifle had cooled down or the plastic case would get stuck and the brass bottom would come off. I don't remember the brand but I do remember they had a website.
