First and Last time I buy this Ammo
I am not blaming Lucky Gunner for PMC’s poor quality. I read the reviews after I placed my order, sure enough the shells have to be pushed out one at a time using a tool on my S&W revolver because the casing expands locking it in the cylinder.
Trouble ejecting from Ruger SP101
I enjoy PMC ammo for my AR-15s, and it fires well. But this 357Mag ammo didn't function well in my short barreled Ruger SP101. Like others have said, nearly impossible to eject the spent casings. Like, multitool-pulling-it-out-hard. I'll keep it for emergencies/end of the world, but certainly not acceptable for daily carry.
OK ammo, would not recommend
Shoots very accurately with little smoke. The problem I have is it hard to get the shells out of the cylinder of my S&W R8 revolver. The bottom 1/8" of the shells expand slightly when fired and they have to be forced out past the 1/8" point. Then they fall right out. I will not purchase again. Still will be a customer as this is the first time I've had a problem with any ammo from Lucky Gunner.
excelant hunting round
Have used this round for several years now but the 2019 season was the best so far took two hogs and three deer a 10 and 8 point both standing under feeder 80 yards doe 55 yards and one hog 80 yards at feeder last one 42 yards. All were neck shots from my Henry 16" carbine with 3x9x40 Hawk scope. I also use it in my GP-100 6" bbl holds 2" at 50 if you do your part and Henry at 100 yards will keep them in 1" all day long. All shots were verified using range finder all I can say is PMC keep cranking them out and don't change a thing.
Decent hunting round
I use this factory round for hunting game up to about 200 lbs. This PMC round is, responsible accurate and has good speed. It is fairly dirty and requires a good bit of cleaning after shooting.
It knockes down bigger hogs easily. I got a nice pass through at 80 yards with this round from my 6" GP100 on a 180 lbs hog.
Not that good for other revolvers.
Shot this through my TRR8 and it will be hard to eject the shell. Also it'll sometimes makes it hard to close the cylinder. I shot some Herters through the TRR8 and it seems to be ok so I knew that the TRR8 is picky with hotter ammo. The PMC runs nice through my 686 though so Im happy about that. Time to get rid of that TRR8.
Just want to let you guys know that by reading the other reviews here, some revolvers dont shoot well with the PMC 357 mag. So reconsider it before buying it.
Good ammunition, well packed and arrive earlier than expected.
Lucky gunner provides good ammunition at a fair market price. We have been a customer for many years and shoot a wide variance of calibres. We have never had a failure or bad lot of ammunition from Lucky Gunner. Typically we buy 'target grade' ammo for practice and range, and better Lucky Gunners better quality for hunting and occasional competition shooting. We are pleased with the consistency of Lucky Gunner's selection of ammunition, packaging, and delivery. We thank you for being our prime supplier.
Good ammo at a decent price. Arrived quickly.
This ammo functioned great in my wheel guns, and lever action rifle. It packs a little punch coming out of the 20" Henry barrel. I like it, I'll be getting more. As usual, you can't beat Lucky Gunner's excellent service.
Decent for plinking
I use these rounds only for the range. I have found that too many of them, usually about one out of 12, fail to fire. This is the only brand I've had that issue with in my Colt Python. Clean-up is a little more than with other brands. Lots of residue. I can't say I highly recommend this product, but for what you pay, it's OK to use them for plinking. But that's about it.
Good value - good performance
i use this158gr JSP ammo for range practice. Great value and it burns clean, delivers bullet where my skills target. Only caution to offer is JSP flat point doesn't feed well in my Ruger 77/357 rifle, not thru fault of the PMC ammo. Delivery and CS from Lucky Gunner was first rate as always!
Good .357's for the price. Great service from LickyGunner (as usual).
Used a 50-box of these PMC's in .357 Mag. for the first time to sight in a new 6" wheel gun. They were as accurate as many other brands I've tried over the past 40 years or so, and were reliable with no FTF or trouble ejecting. These are worth the price, all .357's seem too high-priced to me by now. I did not find the PMC's to be "dirty" when compared with some other brands and handloads I've used that REALLY took some cleaning afterward.
If you shoot it today-clean it today
I shoot a lot of PMC ammo as well as Magtech etc. I have never had problems getting my wheel guns or my autos clean. A "swab" is no substitute for a brass bristle brush. However a gunsmith will gladly clean it for you and charge you accordingly!
Purchased this ammo to use in my Colt Python. Opened the new box and loaded 6 rounds. They all fired, but then the casings would not come out of the gun. After spending 10 minutes trying to get them out at the range, I finally removed them and tried the other box I ordered. Only 5 of 6 shots went off. Will never buy PMC again. Now what to do with the 88 rounds of junk ammo I have... I have ordered from lucky gunner many times and this review is not a knock on them, just on the product alone.
ammo performs well and is qaulity made.
I bought this ammo to run thru my marlin lever action carbine. Yes the ammo is on the dirty side, however I would never complaine about something as trivial as that when .357 is so very hard to come by. I have purchased lots of diff ammo from Lucky Gunner and have never had a problem withany of it. The pmc works great and is produced with a high level of fit and finish. It shoots accurate. And powerful. If u have a problem cleaning your weapon after u shoot it ,then u probably should not own one!
Loaded the Ruger, cocked it, pulled the trigger and it went Bang, and a hunk of lead flew out of the barrel. This is what happened as it's supposed to. Didn't notice a lot of difference from other rounds, except that it wasn't as smokey as Magtec. will buy again if I need to.
Considering todays out of control prices and availability this is a fair value. The rounds shoot well and are accurate. My only complaint is that they are very dirty so be ready to do some cleaning and have some good solvent on hand. I have not tried reloading any of this brass so cannot comment on that.
This PMC. 357 Mag. is the dirties round ever fired through my 6", Taurus wheel gun. After firing 60 rounds, I spent two days cleaning my gun. I never had so very much cleaning to do on the outside of the cylinder. Why two days to clean? After running a dozen or so swabs, I realized I was not gaining any ground on cleaning the barrel. That prompted me to place a heavy spray of Ballistol inside and outside of the gun and let it work over night. The following day ran a dozen or so swabs through the barrel and cylinders. Still dirty! Also, two tooth brushes later finally got the pressure cone reasonably clean. I am now on my way to the local gun shop to purchase a snake. I hope with the use of the snake I can get the barrel clean to my satisfaction.
Why did I buy PMC? I heard it was "dirty". I never thought it could be that "dirty" and nothing else is available!
