    Any opinion on PMC ammo for target practice?

    So far I have only used PMC's fmj rounds for target practice with my .40 cal. I have shot 150rds through it so far and have not had one single issue. Every round has fed, fired, and ejected properly. Does anyone else have any experience with their ammo? Seems pretty great so far. I have bought the 50rd boxes at big r and they sell for $20 there. So thats $0.40 per round, doesn't seem to bad to me.

    opinions?

    I have used PMC in several different configurations - 9MM, 38SPL, 45ACP and 5.56 and never had a problem with any of it. Good buy for the $ for target practice. The only thing I don't like is that it is not US made.

    I went through a bulk order of PMC 45ACP a couple years ago and it had no issues with it using my old 1911 and Taurus Mil Pro. The powder burns dirtier than the domestic stuff but not as bad as Wolf or Tula.

    Never had any misfeeds or misfires with .45 or 5.56, but it's far from the cleanest-shooting stuff out there. Accuracy is acceptable.

    The dabs I've used over the years seemed enthusiastically robust when fired, especially their .22 Long Rifle ammo and some did chronograph to yield velocities a bit higher than most other brands. Don't know recall details and don't have my notes at hand.

    Have gone through several thousand rounds of 9mm, 5.56 and .45. Nothing but good comments.

    I shoot PMC in .45 and .223 I can't say I've never had a problem. I had ONE misfire in .45 which was no big deal. I still buy it and still shoot it often.

    It works okay- some is pretty hot. Very dirty however.

    I shoot PMC all the time. It dings the steel and put holes in paper just fine.

    I don't run it all the time but I've probably shot a few hundred rounds in different calibers and it always works. I even have a few boxes of hollow points, not because they are amazing but because at my LGS it's like 10 bucks for a box, so what the heck.

    No problems when I've used PMC ammo. It does tend to be dirtier than some other brands, but I don't consider that a problem since the gun gets cleaned after shooting.

    I purchased and used some in .223 this past weekend. It ran fine in my AR carbine. It did seem to recoil a little softer than 5.56mm PPU I was using also. I've read before that it maybe a little under powered vs. 5.56, but have no real evidence to support that.
