Ammunition that's sold in the United States comes from a lot of different places. But most people don't realize that some of it's manufactured in South Korea. After the Korean War, the South Koreans recognized the need for an independent source of domestically manufactured ammo, in order to be self sufficient.
Nowadays, PMC manufactures ammunition all the way from the 556 up to 8-inch shells for Howitzers. The ammunition that I tested was PMC's 223 Remington 55 Grand Load. This ammo was loaded with a lead core, full metal jacket bow tail bullet, and a boxer prime brass case.
If you reload, this is a great choice of factory ammunition. The cases are brass, re-loadable and the primers are not crimped. Out of PMC's test barrels, the muzzle velocity is 3,200 feet per second, with a muzzle energy of 1,250-foot pounds.
I tested this load in five different AR-15s, and all functioned flawlessly. I was also able to chronograph this with a 16- and 20- inch barrel. This PMC ammo is just as accurate as any standard 55 grain military load. And though this is not match grade ammo, it did perform very well.
I've been shooting PMC's ammunition for a long time in a lot of different firearms. I like it because it's accurate, re-loadable, and it never lets me down.

Nicely packaged and adequate.
I used some of this recently at my local range. It was my first opportunity since I bought it to give it a try. I have been using some reloads from Georgia Arms that I have had for longer than I would like to admit. Frankly, the reloads seemed to have a bit more power and accuracy. I was making three shots at a time, and then checking with my scope. My groupings were a little better with the old ammo. This is not to say I won't buy this again because I believe it is very well made. The cases appear to be anealed which indicates more effort in manufacturing. I'll put these through a digital meter when I get a chance to see what the velocity looks like.
Great value for performance
I finally got my first AR-15 and bought this ammo (1000). Shot 100 rounds today to sight the gun in. Not a single problem. Seems clean burning. Great value. Will buy more.
To Lucky Gunner - you are running a great business! I love and appreciate how you rung the business. Everything was spot on - Inventory, Shipping, Packaging. You are the best source of ammo on line. Kudos to you all!!
Great ammo to have fun at the range with. I put 1000 rounds through my Sig M400 patrol, and I'm very happy with it. It's not match ammo but it's clean, cheap, and grouping is pretty good. Great to have a blast with at the range. Just bought another 2000 rounds. Great buy in bulk ;however , if you want dead nuts accuracy , buy several different boxes of ammo until your rifle finds the one it loves.
Just three years ago, I purchased a AR 15 223/5.56 NATO version. Being a skeet shooter, this was a foreign adventure for me. I only target shoot so I gave many brands of ammo a try and can honestly say PMC has made an ammo snob out of me! The performance of this ammo is, in my opinion, unmatched in all aspects. Cleanest I've ever shot which allows me to shoot 500-600 rounds without cleaning my AR. Even then, there's very little residue. Thank you PMC for producing such a high grade product and pricing it where recreational shooters can afford and enjoy it!
I've purchased two cases of this ammo. Quality is about consistency. This product is extremely consistent. Always goes bang. No failures...in loading, firing or ejecting. Reasonably clean. No product variations...no dented bullets, no inconsistencies in the brass. Performs very well...consistently accurate. If I miss, it's because I did something wrong - it's not because of the bullet. I can't always say that about other range ammo I've tried. Value is outstanding. Unless you want match grade ammo, I can't understand why you would buy anything else. Additionally, Lucky Gunner always seems to have the best prices and plenty in stock.
Great ammo and Great company
PMC 223 ammo is some of the best I have shot in my AR. I will definitely be ordering more when I am in need. Lucky Gunner has been great to deal with and they have very fast shipping. I always get exactly what I order and I get it fast. Lucky Gunner is the only place to buy ammo.....
Good Product, Great Service.
LuckyGunner had the best price around on this ammo. I was also VERY pleased with the super-fast shipping, which got to my door in 2 days! Also had a separate billing address than shipping address, and luckygunner called me within 5 minutes of placing the order to ensure I had correctly entered the correct addresses, in order to prevent a possible fraudulent transaction. Would recommend to all and WILL order again.
Mmmm... AR-15 want more... Grunt...
New Springfield Saint eats them right up and spits out the brass nice and smooth. Loaded them all up into stripper clips too, and they slid in nice and consistently. Clean in the box, clean in the chamber ;)
The best production AR-15 ammo there is!
I have tested all the brands of AR-15 ammo available including the newest offered in over a dozen rifles of various barrel lengths and twist rates the past 8 years and this ammo manufactured in 55-grain bronze tip is number one in consistent performance and is capable of 0.25" groups at 100 yards if the shooter and scope do their job! (Have used a Oehler's 35P chronograph to check velocities of this ammo to be 2,980 fps in 16" barrels, 3,060 fps in 18" and 3,150 fps in 20" barrels.)
Had issues initially w/self built ar15's. Ammo was not the ammo. Issues were: misfires (could see the firing pin indentation), also what seemed to be double feed(clearing was a hassle).....turns out it was the gun, the extractor was not pulling casings from the chamber.
The fix was I ordered a stronger extractor spring and also replace the buffer with a spyder tungsten powder filled also heavier than the one that comes with the kit.
Once I did this, gun's ran flawlessly, very good ammo, just purchased another 1000 rounds.
If you buy a kit, they usually come with weak extractor springs and lightest buffer, with a 16" barrel length, this combination will drive you nuts, so ig gun is 80% you may run into some of these issues, shorter barrel, shorter gas tube therefor heavier buffer and stronger extractor spring. Now my guns fire with NO problems at all....so beware if building your own, the kits (to keep the price down) will usually send with lightest buffer and weak extractor spring.
Hope this is helpful to anyone doing an 80% build, if you have misfires, from what I've discovered on my guns (both of them) heavier buffer will seat the round clean and fully into the chamber and also seating the bolt flush against the primer (ends the misfires). The stronger extractor spring will ensure proper ejection of the spent round, then you also won't have what looks like a double feed, but ls actually an extraction issue.
My S&W MP was doing the same thing, applied the same fixes and it runs perfectly now also.
I love ordering ammo from lucky gunner. The real time inventory counter they have for each product as well as the fast shipping, two days for this purchase, is amazing. I will continue to buy my ammo from Lucky Gunner. Great work guys!
3rd box of PMC ammo. Thru my AR I have fired 2000 rounds, no misfires. Installed Bumpfire stock and using 100 rd. Twin drum mags. First couple rounds slow due to unease with Bumpfire. After 97 rounds on full auto, not one malfunction. Need to keep rifle clean and bolt cleaned and oiled sometimes after 600-800 rounds. Lucky gunner have started a love affair for all eternity. Long as their ammo still good and cheap.
Good value for heavy user
I shoot over 6k rounds of M855,XM193 a year on MG's. Using Federal as my standard of judgment. And having used PMC since the 90s. They are on par with Federal, but are a little more dirtier in excess carbon residue. Never a failure even on multi 100&240rd dumps. Use PMC tracers also. Use in 100% confidence. 4 star because of excess carbon, otherwise its 5 star ammo. Hate cleaning gas tubes
This PMC 223 shoots great. It's clean and cool. I experienced ZERO malfunctions with it. Lastly, as always Lucky Gunner shipping and customer service was outstanding. I recommend PMC 223 and Lucky Gunner as the place to meet your ammo needs.
Terrific service and ammo
Put my order in on a Tuesday morning, and the ammo was on my front porch Thursday mid-day! This is the second case I've ordered, so haven't fired any yet, as I'm still working on the first case. Great ammo, very reliable through my S&W M&P15 - no jams or misfires, very clean-burning and accurate; can't beat the price. Thanks, Lucky Gunner!
Great product for the price.
Great/Fast service from Lucky Gunner as with all my purchases. Probably my fourth case of PMC 223 Rem-55 Grain FMJ ammo. The reliability is 100% through the Tavor and various ARs that I own. Highly recommended for plinking.
purchased 1000 rounds of PMC.
It was the first purchase I made at Lucky Gunner but it won't be my last. The people are friendly and very cordial. I couldn't believe how fast the shipment came. It took just three days. You get quality ammo at the lowest possible price.
PMC 223 55 GRAIN BOAT TAIL
This is excellent ammunition for target practice. I stick to 100 yards for my weekly trips to the range. This is well-made ammo, the rounds are consistent and I have yet to have a misfire on over 4,000 rounds. I can never say enough about LuckyGunner and its products. Order it today and the ammo is on your doorstep in 2-3 days.
Worth every shot
Just went to the range on Monday, and I have no complaints, every round was true and on target. My son especially likes shooting the .223's and he has become very proficient at keep them on target and groups tight. PMC is and always will be my ammunition of choice for range shooting. Thank You LG for a great experience.
ALWAYS ORDER AMMO FROM LUCKY GUNNER. FAST DELIVERY AND PRODUCT IS AS PROMISED.
I ALWAYS ORDER AMMO FROM LUCKY GUNNER. PRODUCT ARRIVES FAST AND AS ORDERED. LUCKY GUNNER'S INVENTORY IS VAST, AND COVERS ALL TYPES OF AMMO NEEDS.
Extremely satisfied with Lucky Gunner site.
I was just introduced to your site and was hesitant about purchasing ammo online. With my first transaction complete and order received I will definitely be purchasing from Lucky Gunner again and again!
WOW - SPOTT ON ! !
I have been using the PMC .223 in my Black Rain Fallout 15 for a year , and I have NEVER had an issue with this ammo. It is ACCURATE, as CLEAN as can be, and when I get it VALUED priced every once in a while, it is a SUPERB deal! I had been using another bulk ammo company, but Lucky Gunner is now my go to for 9mm, 00 buck, and .223! Plus, my grandson was born this year on March 17th! LUCKY SPOTT!
Been plinking with PMC 223 55 grain FMJ for quite a while now! Can't go wrong I've run 500 rounds through in a couple visits to the range..... Flawlessly and with good accuracy! Will keep buying it ... Thanks Lucky Gunner for the great price and quick delivery!
Excellent S. Korean ammo. Reliable. Depending on your rifle quality, how well you clean it and maintain will depend on performance. That being said, I target practice with this ammo mostly and never once had a failure to feed, no failure to fire and no failure to ejects. My S&W M&P X 223/556 eats this ammo like candy! Fairly clean ammo and 1 inch groups at 100 yards on a clam day (no wind) with a scope!
Awesome product, awesome, price, awesome service
Great stuff at a great price! Have never had a problem with PMC ammo. LG always ships with lightning speed and never ceases to amaze. These guys always have what I need in stock and at very good prices, not like other sites where they list things that they don't even have in stock.
Goes bang everytime
LuckyGunner is consistently the lowest price for PMC 223 55 gr Boat Tail ammo. I have shoot at least 3000 rounds without any failures. I will be purchasing more in the near future. The service is fast & dependable. What more can you ask for, good price, good service & good ammo.
Before ordering the more expensive .223 ammo, I tested the shipping and Quality of the .22 rounds. My order arrived in six days as promised. I fired 100 rounds through my two .22 rifles and two pistols. There were zero misfires in these rounds. Happy with that order, I ordered 1,000 rounds of 5.62 (.223). I received my order in the same six day time frame. I fired 100 rounds through my Bushmaster AR and again, all 100 rounds fired without fail. Accuracy, chambering and ejection of the rounds were flawless. I can not recommend both batches of ammo more. They delivered as advertised. I will be placing another order soon. Great job!
Quality ammo, great price
What more can I say? Fired a few hundred rounds at the range. No problems, other than accuracy. But I guess that's on me. Not dirty, making cleaning easy and quick. Good price and quick delivery. Can't beat the deal.
I have to say I have never had a bad experience with with Lucky Gunners ammo,shipping or service. I recommend them to everyone who I know.
can you find it cheaper, maybe I wouldn't bet on it, and from experience I know you can't find it shipped faster.
Very good ammo for the price
I have fired more than 2000 rounds of PMC Bronze through my Palmetto State AR and have never had a failure to feed, failure to fire, or failure to extract. This ammo is absolutely reliable and very accurate for the price. My only complaint would be how dirty is fires. I would say it is on par with Federal, but, for the price, you will not find a more reliable accurate ammo. It is well worth your money.
Excellent product and service
When I purchased my Troy PAR I picked up 100 rounds of PMC at a local store. Shot clean and accurate. Found this site a bit later and was amazed at the savings on ammo prices. Unfortunately PMC ammo wasn't available then due to the ATF mess. Bought bulk Federal and had 2 Failure to Fire events out of forty rounds. Loaded twenty rounds of PMC and no failures. Ordered 1000 rounds of PMC recently when it went on sale. Very quick delivery and perfect ammo for range shooting, clean, accurate and priced right. Thank you LUCKY GUNNER.
Ammo is of a great, affordable quality, as I've come to expect from PMC and Federal. I can't say enough good things about LuckyGunner. Excellent deals, excellent customer service, and quick shipping. Every. Single. Time. I refuse to buy my ammunition anywhere else. I hope this service continues for years to come. Thank you!
Super service from Lucky Gunner
Haven't fired a single round I ordered but just wanted to comment on the outstanding buying experience with Lucky Gunner. I friend recommended this company for online ammo purchases. He says its the only online outfit he uses. I ordered .223, 20 ga, and 9mm ammo. easy to use website with great prices on good ammo. Shipped the next day and arrived just a few days later. I'll buy more from Lucky Gunner.
Best ammo for the money. I will only order PMC ammo in the future for range shooting and plinking.
Well priced. As close to match ammo as you can get without the expense. Eight shot groupings of one and a half inches at 100 yards . Highly recommend for the average shooter. At over five hundred rounds, not one problem.
good ammo, good price, good service, it doesn't get any better than that
Fired 800 of the 1000 rounds of PMC 223 FMJBT purchased with no problems whatsoever. Feeds & ejects perfectly and is reasonably clean. The order arrived on time and the price was reasonable. I will purchasing more from Lucky Gunner in the future.
Awesome place to deal with!
Purchased 1,000 rds of 223 and couldn't be easier! The staff was very helpful and shipped fast! Very happy with the whole experience! Definitely would recommend lucky gunner to anyone buying in bulk!
Good stuff, Good price & shipping was great.
Have been using this PMC ammo for several years and never been disappointed with any of it. LG had an excellent priced sale on it and it arrived in two days. Can't beat that combination, good product, good price and quickly received.
Thanks for the great customer service
I am taking my sons to a tactical rifle class in Nevada for Spring break. I couldn't ask for a better way to spend time with my family. Because of your quick and courteous service, I received the appropriate type of ammo in a short period of time. I will continue to purchase products from your company. Thank you!
Good to go
Shipping cost was good and silly fast.
Clean tight packed case. PMC Bronze sells itself. No issues. Will do again wthout second thoughts.
Rock River eats it up through any type of mag I have .... Pmags to old rusted dented 70' GI contract issue.
Groups good enough for minute of bad guys out to 200 yards. Real tight under 75 yards.
Cant believe it, I ordered a thousand rounds of this , they sent me an E mail said it would be here on Friday...well it didnt come on Friday , it was here on THURSDAY>>>>Yippee, quite happy..PMC is good new brass ammo ..loved your easiness to purchase an recieve...will be a repeat customer!
you should purchase this ammo
Great ammo , functions well . Accurate in al my Ar configurations and bolt actions rifles. The price is super and the reloadable brass is a plus. We should all support Lucky Gunner as second admendent and shooting folks.
i got what i ordered in record time! it's great ammo, shoots great, and i'll order more in the future!
I'm very pleased with my order, and have recommended you to several of my friends. when I read your explanation of the difference in the chamber pressure from the .223 and the 5.56, I was surprised. I never knew there was any difference in the two. that's why I ordered from you. no other site mentioned any difference!
Outstanding value and performance !
I bought my brother in law the 223 ammo for Christmas. I have purchased these before and the value and performance are outstanding. Lucky Gunner is the best. The ammo arrived well before I expected and was complete. Best value and performance are here. Thanks again. Will
Excellent service and delivery
Sales took the time to go over details and make suggestions over the phone, with patience and expertise. Delivery was on time, well packaged and as promised. Will definitely do business with Lucky Gunner again. Keep up the good work.
I don't know what better to say about this product other than it has performed flawlessly for me (zero failures). This is my 2nd case of PMC and I haven't been happier in a low cost round. I used these for a two day class and it performed every bit I needed. Unfortunately the longest range in my area is 200 yards so I've only tested
