PMC ammunition is manufactured in South Korea by the Poongsan Corporation (ISO certified) which produces cartridges ranging from small arms ammunition to large howitzer rounds for the S. Korean military. The Poongsan Corporation dates back to 1968 and since its founding it has grown to become on one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of ammunition. The Poongsan Corporation's primary mission is to make South Korea fully self-reliant for their ammunition needs. Taking advantage of their high standards required through the military's reliance on their ammunition, their excess capacity is highly sought after throughout the world's commercial markets. In the United States, their reliable range ammo has become a standard for excellence and consistency.
In addition loading cartridges, PMC also manufactures all of their own components from raw materials. This complete control over the supply chain allows for PMC to control the quality of each component providing for greater consistency than ammunition loaders that source their materials from a variety of suppliers.
This precision manufactured ammunition is brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.
Video Transcript:Precision Made Cartridges, or PMC for short, is a branch of the South Korean Poongson Munitions. They started up in the 1960s and currently produce almost all the ammunition used by the South Korean military, including small arms ammo, as well as heavy artillery. Under the PMC division they use the same high standards set for their military ammo to produce quality pistol and rifle ammo sold to civilians all over the globe.
The PMC Bronze line is their low cost range and practice ammo, with several different calibers offered. In 9mm, PMC Bronze is available with 115 and 124 grain loads. This one is there 124 grain full metal jacket. It features a lead core bullet with a traditional jacket seated in a brass case with a non-corrosive primer.
Despite the name, there's no actual bronze metal used in these cartridges. It's all the normal copper, lead, and brass that you're used to seeing. To find out how PMC performed on the range, we shot a couple of boxes using five handguns and one nine millimeter carbine. There were no feeding problems or ignition and every round functioned exactly as expected.
Recoil was moderate for a 9mm, making this a good load for long practice sessions or for use in short barrel guns. We tested accuracy with our Beretta CX4 from a bench rest at the 20 yard line. The 10-shot group showed good consistency with all the rounds impacting within about an inch of the point of aim.
Low cost brass case ammo is tough to come by these days. And in that category, PMC might be one of the best kept secrets in the industry. It performs right on pace with any of the more established manufacturers and is an excellent choice for practice and training on the range.
