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 South 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, branded as PMC (Precision Made Cartridges), 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.
PMC is unique in that they manufacture all of their components from raw materials which helps them maintain more control over each step in their supply chain. PMC goes so far as to even manufacture their own rolls of brass from which the brass cups that form the case are punched out of instead of outsourcing this step. This is just one example to illustrate the extra care that PMC takes to ensure their quality is never at risk from a supplier dropping the ball.
PMC Ammo is manufactured in Poongsan's Angang and Dongrae plants located in South Korea.

Review by Shawn
I made a mistake and ordered 300 rounds of this for my wife’s Beretta Tomcat. These jammed immediately before even firing, while charging. One round got stuck in the chamber due to crimped shell. It was manually loaded in the tip up barrel, so wasn’t even a feed issue; had to pry it out. Not a single magazine of this went without jamming. I tried a different ball round to compare and the other worked perfectly. Will avoid this brand at all costs because it has zero reliability. Lucky Gunner’s service is top notch, but should reconsider this manufacturer. I was hoping to be able to submit a photo of the round showing the crimp was not a mechanical failure but manufacturer’s low quality.

blinded by the light
Review by J. P.
Little doubt it's good ammo for hog or whitetail hunt where legal, or range or daylight carry. And as another reviewer also said it creates an impressive flash. It's very cool but unless you're at bad breath self-defense distance from an imminent threat in dark conditions your momentary blindness will probably be as bad or worse than whatever you're trying to stop. Not ideal when followup shots may be necessary. The 10mil has very good stopping power. And this particular load by all descriptions is no slouch. Still it is not a guaranteed one-shot-stop. Unless you tend to close your eyes momentarily as you're shooting (not recommended) these are sub-par if there's any possibility of deep dark woods or dark alley defensive scenarios.
I did very much like shooting it at the range. Again, the flash is impressive. Cool.

Shoots dirty, a bit under powered
Review by Romulo
Using this ammo up as fast as possible, ballistics are not great and only good for target practice, feels underpowered and shoots very dirty

1/5th of the bullets jam
Review by Reedster
So I got this ammo during the 2020 ammo recession right after I bought a new 1911 in 10mm. I don’t know if it’s because I’m still breaking in my new gun or if it’s the ammo but 10 rounds in a box of 50 jammed up on me... Just to give you guys some perspective, Federal American Eagle will feed flawlessly and Sellier and Bellot will jam up every other round.

This is the same round used in one of the very first defensive shootings with 10mm, back in the early 1990s.
An emotionally disturbed person went to a gun store in rural Oregon, brandishing a cheap cast potmetal .380 and announced his intent to kill everyone and loot the place. The staff--all armed--and a local sheriff's deputy who was also present thought he was joking until he put in earplugs and began pointing the gun at store staff a few feet away.
At that point the bad guy was engaged at powder-burn distance with one round of Remington 147gr JHP from a Glock 17 by the deputy, which hit him in the upper arm and passed through without striking bone or any large blood vessels. One of the guys behind the counter--a combat veteran and avid IPSC competitor--drew a stainless Colt Delta Elite loaded with this ammunition, PMC 170gr JHP, and hit the robber three times center mass so fast that witnesses reported it sounded like a burst from a submachinegun. Bad guy fell down like a puppet with its strings cut and was assuming room temperature when the paramedics arrived.
At autopsy two perfectly expanded 10mm 170gr bullets were recovered, both perfectly expanded, one just under the skin on the back side of the bad guy's torso and one in his clothing on the back side. Bad guy had two very large exit wounds on his back that the coroner described as ragged in character, indicating that they had been made by expanding bullets. Soft tissue damage was significant. Third bullet was not recovered, which is mysterious because the bad guy had his back to the entrance, directly in line on the opposite side of him from the man with the Colt, a large glass door, and the door was not struck by a bullet or otherwise damaged.
This is not quite a full-power load in 10mm--not by Underwood, Buffalo Bore, Double Tap, etc. standards, anyway--but it has a lot more juice than any .40 load I know of and more than did the job in the hands of a skilled user who was able to get the hits when he needed to. It may not have had a bonded jacket, or a jacket that formed into sharp claws upon expansion, but it did all you could reasonably expect a handgun cartridge to do for purposes of self-defense.

OK ammo, would not recommend
Review by Michael
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.

Does not expand.
Review by Ken
Have used these before. They're Hollowpoint in name only. They feed just fine, go bang every time, but they're charging more for "Hollowpoints" when they perform identically to FMJ's. Just look at the ballistics gel test here on luckygunner, average expansion- 0.400 from 0.400, absolutely no expansion with 32 inch of penetration. They're not even particularly powerful for FMJ's. They're useless as a self defense load and more expensive than plinking FMJ's.

Great quality ammo
Review by Josh
I have purchased two different calibers of this ammo. I like it a lot. It shoots clean. I am shooting this in my Ruger .357 I recommend this product. Also the packing and shipping were done very well. I will be a repeat customer here.

Very happy with this purchase
Review by Josh
I was very happy with my experience buying this ammo. I got a good price and very quick shipping. It was packaged well and complete. I have fired 200 rounds so far and have not had one single issue. I’m shooting a Taurus G2C. I will be buying more of this ammo.

Clean but a bit rough to chamber and eject.
Review by Doc
Broke in my S&W m&p shield 380 ez with this stuff. Every round fired; but, compared to the Fiocchi I bought at the same time, these rounds felt rough upon chambering the first round. Other than that, really liked the stuff.

Does the job it was designed for.
Review by Comrade Bean
This is by no means a match or competition round. M855 is designed for practical engagement distances and to penetrate light skinned vehicles and most cover. For the job it was designed for it functions fantastically. These may be the most uniformly manufactured steel cores out there. I would not recommend running these for hunting or anywhere, where you are not required to shoot into a berm. However for duty loadouts or SHTF, you can't really get better ammo for the price during these times. Not to mention the 2 day shopping was just that.
