    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.

    The cartridge bases are metal.

    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.

    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, :)

    Hello.
    Has anyone been able to establish if these are to be Boxer or Berdan primed please?
    Thank you.

    The idea was out 25-30 years ago. USAS, was the maker, I believe. Used special, heeled bullets in .38 spl but very reloadable. Steel rims and plastic body.

    I foresee these being much cheaper than brass cased ammo.
