PMC stands for Poongsan Munitions Corporation and is manufactured in South Korea. They've been around since the 1970s and currently manufacture almost all the ammunition for the South Korean military, everything from ammo for small arms all the way up to 8 inch Howitzer shells. Even though they're a foreign company, PMC invests heavily in American steel and copper companies, and they employ a lot of Americans.
The ammo we used for this review was PMC Bronze 230 grain 45 ACP. It has a lead core, full metal jacket bullet, a reloadable brass case, and a non-corrosive primer. Despite the name, there's no actual bronze used in the ammo. It's just a definition of the brand. With a muzzle velocity of just 830 feet per second, PMC Bronze is among the softer recoiling 45 ACP range ammo available, making it a good choice for long shooting sessions.
Even though it's on the less expensive end of the spectrum for brass case 45 ammo, the PMC bronze performed admirably. We had no failures or malfunctions in any of our six test guns. Accuracy was also pretty good. We got a decent 10 shot group shooting from the bench at 15 yards with a Springfield XDM. If you're looking for inexpensive brass case 45 ACP practice ammo, then PMC Bronze should definitely make the list.

Good stuff, no problems cycling through my M&P 45c and Remington R1. No jambs or miss feeds, order showed up as promised and priced very well.

Review by Andrew. (Posted on 3/4/14)
I am not a professional shooter by any means, but enjoy shooting very much. I took my Springfield 1911-A1 to the range this weekend and ran through 150 rounds of PMC .45 ACP. The ammo had zero malfunctions and is plenty accurate for me, (probably more accurate than me). Not my first time using PMC and won't be my last.

My wife and I carry .45 caliber weapons. We shoot regularly, and this stuff works great for us. Her firearm, Colt Defender, sometimes is particular about certain ammunition, but this ammo has always worked very well for her. My 5" 1911 is never picky when shooting this ammo, either.
We've purchased multiple times from LuckyGunner and have always been pleased with their prices and service.

I ordered 1000 rounds of PMC Bronze for target practice. It may be on the less expensive end of the spectrum for 45 brass case ammo, but I found it to be clean, accurate, and dependable. I will buying more and all my future ammo requirements will be coming from LuckyGunner. These guys are unreal. They provide great products at a great price, fast delivery, and great packaging. It doesn't get any better than this. I have already recommended LuckyGunner and PMC Bronze to all of my shooting buddies.

Shoots well, leaves a bit more crud than I'd prefer
Review by Andrew. (Posted on 10/19/12)
I've run these through my Sig 1911 and had no issues with FTL/FTF/FTE. They load and go bang every time. Accuracy seems great for the price. My biggest complaint is about the propellant; it smells kind of sour, as some others online have described it "like burning soap," and the inside of my pistol seems very dirty after just a hundred rounds of this stuff.
Shoot outdoors? Then I'd imagine the smell is a non-issue.
In my location, almost all ranges are indoor so I thought I'd mention this seldom-examined part of the PMC experience as it will probably lead me to buy another brand next time. I may be more sensitive to this factor than other folks but it's worth noting.

PMC It Doesn't Get Any Better For The Value
Review by Heckler Glock. (Posted on 2/18/12)
I've tried a variety of economy brands in my Glock 21 and HK USP full size. By far the least dirty rounds were PMC FMJ. Since I get my .40 and .45 auto from a mom/pop store I can get a better deal on 1000 rounds. I just purchased 2000 rounds each of PMC. Don't compromise with munitions like Sellier-Bellot as they are just a tiny bit less expensive but a lot dirtier. Yes both Glock and HK will fire Sellier-Bellot without fail after several hundred rounds without cleaning because they were designed to do so. But you will have a substantial increase in your cleaning time.

I really don't have much to say because I have no complaintsat all. The product was very good, price was great compared to what they cost elsewhere, delivery was faster than I expected, and I'm sure I'll keep using Lucky Gunner to buy my ammo.
