    Have only used it for .223 since they had good bulk rates & we've done some group buys before with close range buddies. Have had no issues. Nice brass actually. It probably isn't "match grade", but for range with red dot setup it's more than adequate.

    Also, look into BVAC. It's a notch below since it's once fired brass, but factory loaded. Great for range use & about as cheap as you can go without reloading or using steal casings. I actually have a batch of loose .223 PMC and BVAC mixed together in an ammo can.

    I have made several bulk purchases to build up brass supply for reloading,
    never an issue with the ammo (seems very consistent), and I like the brass.

    I use it often as it is available and have never had any issues with it.

    I just got a box of PMC Gold Starfire 45ACP, 230gr, star-shaped hollow points today. Came recommend by my candy store as a good carry ammo. Will try them tomorrow.

    I have used several thousand rounds in 9mm, .45ACP, and 5.56. Out of all of that I had 1 9mm round not go bang. Gave it a couple of tries and even though it had a good dent in the primer it just didn't work.

    A few months back, I had read that PMC was going to stop shipping to the US. Apparently this isn't the case? Was that just part of the rumor mill to justify rising prices?

    i've shot over 2k of .223 pmc bronze and 1k of 9mm pmc bronze. no issues at all.

    I've never had issues with it, but thought it was dirty as sin. But, that's a simple inconvenience when cleaning after a trip to the range. If the price was right, I'd certainly buy more.

    Occasional use of PMC - no issues, always goes bang, and leaves nice brass behind for reloading.
