Good, clean, goes BOOM!!!by Skylardo on 12/3/2014
I've put maybe 100 rounds downrange with no issues except possibly one. My SCAR 17 failed to feed, and I saw the bullet ... Read More
Great ammo for the money, except it is still marked up about $20 higher than it should be... the flugaloo scare is settling down, let’s bring this price on down the $329.99 it was 3 weeks or so ago and I’ll buy another case or 9, come on Lucky, you can do it! Seriously, shoots great out of my AR10, M1A, RPR, and others.
Between two of the firearms I enjoy shooting the most, PMC is the brand I have found that most agrees with the actions. Out of the hundreds of rounds I've put down range, not a single PMC round has jammed or failed to fire where as other brands have.
Please don't misinterpret review has nothing to do with seller luckygunner.com great service great shipping no problem there, but this ammo is some of the most inconsistent rounds I've ever shot at a hundred yards, you might get a couple to group 2 or 3in groups then everything all over the place, pretty looking ammo shoes clean statement is coming from experience shooter quality Optics and rifle,you're better off shooting match grade and I'm sure Lucky Gunner sells match Grade ammo Federal Sierra preferably good stuff.
I bought this for my brand new Springfield M1A and it has devoured it so ar. Granted I only shot two mags but I really liked it... The brass of the casing and the copper of the bullet really makes this some good looking ammo.. If price goes back down to $305.00 per 500 I'll definitely buy more...
We shot this through a Remington 700. Rifle and shooter capable of sub 1 MOA all day any day. The best group we could get was greater than 3 moa. We never had a misfire. If you intent is to put a lot of lead in the air in the general direction of your target. It'll get the job done. But if You want to do accurate shooting it's a waste of money!
Looked for a great deal on .308 ammo for my AR-10 and I must say this ammo rocked! Fired 300 rounds so far and not one FTF or FTE. Ammo was clean and didnt shoot dirty. Great accuracy out to 250 yards. Super fast delivery and packaging. I will be buying this again soon!!
My Ruger SR 762 and PTR 91 SC eats this stuff up. I had problems when I first ran it through my SR 762 but after getting the first 40 rounds through it I haven't had any more problems. The only bad things is that Luckygunner can no longer ship to me because I live in an area code that bars them from shipping ammo. Other then that I still support Luckygunner and I love this ammo.
I've run 300 rounds through a Ruger SR 762 with no loading or ejecting issue or FTF!
On a side note....I have heard of issues with this load and prvi partisan loads in the first production run of SR's, same was true with loading issues when using Pmags in that first production run.... They have all that worked out now! I've run over a 1000rounds from match grade to generic (except steel cases) through my (non first run) SR with "0" issues and one inch groups at a 100 yards.
Saved a dollar a round buying these. No gunk after firing. Brand new, polished casing and bullet. No failures. Grouped 1" at 50 yards with the first 3 shots I fired. No complaints. For the price, you need 500 rounds, today.
I picked up 500 rounds to shoot thru my Scar 17 I shot 100 rounds thru the rifle and they ran flawlessly no complaints. 308 / 7.62x51 is not cheep and this is a pretty good deal as far as 308 goes so I will buy again. Oh and they don't attract a magnet so the indoor range has no problem letting you use them like 90% of ranges do.
I ordered 11-6-16 and expected to wait due to the election. It was shipped and I received my order on election day. AWESOME service from LuckyGunner. This will not be my last order. These are GOOD people,
This is a good ammo for your M14 / M1A. I've had no issues with it as it shoots consistently and clean. I've gone through about 300 rds. with my M14. When cleaning after the range I only need about 3 patches to get the bore shining like a mirror. You can get cheaper brands, but my range won't allow steel. This is good ammo.
Before using this ammuntion, I didn't see Korea as being a large producer of anything of major quality. Boy was I wrong, and happy to be. The ammo fires beautiful, going through my ar10 without a thought of a misfire. I've fired almost 3000 rounds of this, and never had a misfire. What other ammuntion can claim that? In summary, Pmc is Hornaday quality without Hornaday price.
Sorry I haven't written sooner but thanks for the always swift mailing and the ease you make to order. Three day Precision Rifle Course at Tactical Defense Inst. Went very well and I am sure that any misses had to be the ammo :-). Seriously thanks' for your great service, no issues and good hit's. Your appreciated. Larry Corley
Initially I was unsure about this ammo from Korea, but let's face it...Korea isn't some backwater armpit. I have fired a bunch of this ammo through a pair of Armalite AR10's...16" and 20" barrels. It was every bit as good as white box Winchester NATO as far as accuracy...maybe a tiny bit better. I haven't shot any further than 200 yards. I reload also, and this appears to be very good brass. All around this is a very worthy round. I use different tipped bullets for hunting, but this is a great round for target, sighting-in, and a decent military style round for defense.
Perfect for machine gunners or steel targets out to
100 yards. My Remington 700 Police didn't do better than
2 to 3 inch groups at 100yds with it so I won't be buying more
for that rifle. I'm used to getting sub 1 MOA with this
gun at 100 yards with other brands but I suspect it will do fine
on non precision semi-automatics Military rifles like the M14 or
Got a personal phone call to confirm that my billing and shipping addresses were different and that everything was filled out right. They were very easy pleasant to talk to. As for PMC bronze, I phrchased 500 6 months ago at a gun show and just got another 500 from here. Haven't had an issue with my last batch and doubt I will with this batch either. Lucky Gunner had better prices than the gun show by 20$. Oh, and was at my door in 3 days. Two thumbs up.
I may go days, weeks or months between orders, but each and every time I order, I'm assured I'll get what I ordered because of the inventory system, that it will come quickly, it will be packed well and it was absolutely priced right ( or I wouldnt have ordered in the first place!) Love these guys.
This is basic FMJ. By cutting a few grains on the bullet weight, and leaving out the bullet holder inside the box, (which is basically just a waste of plastic) PMC is able to cut costs, without sacrificing value. Ashame that we have to buy a South Korean product, instead of just producing affordable ammunition Stateside, but, American's have fallen behind the powercurve for production innovation. Long story short, worth every penny.
Nearly done with the entire 500 rounds already. Never had a single "miss-fire" or any problems. Very clean burning gun powder. Great round accuracy even at 400 yards. Looks like I'll be buying another 500
All ammo is expensive PMC packs their ammo without separators to save money. This also allows you store ammo in less space. I've haven't had any mis-feeds and the accuracy is great. Using Springfield Scout rifle
I've put maybe 100 rounds downrange with no issues except possibly one. My SCAR 17 failed to feed, and I saw the bullet was seated improperly in the shell. Not sure if this was from the factory or if I had bent it accidentally.
Have ordered this product three times, ships fast, shoots clean and accurate
by Mike on 10/16/2014
No problems with this ammo. Have ordered three times, fast delivery every time. Probably shoot 2,000 rounds of this a year. Ammo is accurate, feeds smoothly in my M1A and my Browning BLR. I've tried similar ammo from Bear. PMC costs a little more but keeping my rifles clean is a lot easier with PMC ammo.
I have used PMC for years and it's clean and very accurate! The best ammo at the best price for staying sharp. I use 5.56, 7.62, 9mm, and 45 have never had a misfire or a fail to,feed. I can't say the same for Lake City ammo. I have been shooting sub MOA groups out to 450 with the 7.62 out of my FNAR Heavy for the three years I have had the gun. The shipping and price are the best from Lucky Gunner it's the only site I will buy from, have tried others and not had good experiences with any of them! Trust me you are at the right site and if they list it they have it no long wait times after you order like some other sites I could name. Trust here and buy here!!!
Fantastic Ammo and Service. Would and do highly reccomend. 5 Star++
by Bobby B on 10/9/2014
I have had several transactions with Lucky Gunner. What a fantastic company to work with. The products are great and the service is truly second to none. I tell everybody about the products and service that I get with them.
I was very pleased with the accuracy of the .308. My previous experience was with the PMC .223. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they grouped at 225 yds. Both weapons that I use my PMC ammo in .308 and .223 are bull barrel DPMS. The ammo has performed flawlessly. Big 5 star from me.
I love PMC ammo. Boat tail, reliable, accurate up to 500yards all day, and high quality new brass.Can't beat it as far as 147grain 308 ammo goes. Lucky Gunner has best price in stock shipped to your door fast with no hassle.
This is the second time I've ordered the 147 grain PMC FMJ-BT .308 ammo from Lucky Gunner and it's absolutely great stuff! No problems with the performance of the ammo whatsoever. I'll be buying another 500 rounds of PMC from Lucky Gunner real soon.
Very good stuff, zero issues in 3 different rifles. Very clean. Accuracy was excellent out to 200 yds. Seems much better than their other 'bronze' line ammo, for accuracy. I'll be buying more. And Lucky Gunner shipped fast, and hassle free. Highly recommended.
This was a great deal, my local gun store had the exact same case of ammo for $100 more. This ammo is quality, 0 misfires so far. I was very impressed by their shipping as well. I ordered it, and it was on my door step in Michigan in 2 days with standard shipping! Very Satisfied customer, will buy from LuckyGunner again!
This order made it here in perfect condition. This ammo is lead core but it has a great deal of penetration at
close ranges so beware of your targets and backstops ability to securely stop these rounds.
Now tweeking my VEPR ejection port to stop my rifle from chewing up this great reloading brass.
At this writing I have fired 80 rounds with decent accuracy and no misfires. Visual inspection found the ammo in excellent condition and I can use the casings for reloads. I am disappointed in the packaging of the rounds as the containers are flimsy cardboard. Also, there are no sleeves to secure the rounds inside their boxes so they are constantly falling around in their box or the surrounding area.
So I ordered some PMC .308 from Luckygunner for my new SCAR 17S and I couldn't be happier. The value for the performance was fantastic. will look forward to many more purchases through Luckygunner in the future.
I've purchased these 3times now, and I'll be happy to say I will buy more as soon as I can. Cycled through my sig 716. The loads are consistent and makes it easier for me to find my rifles sweet spot. It's non corrosive ammo and the casings are reloadable which makes it cheaper when you either sell to a loader, or just reload your own. Hope this helped.
This ammo performed as expected. I have never had a problem with PMC products and trust them to provide good quality and decent performance. The price paid was running at the market value at the time, and it was available so I jumped on the chance. Ordering from Lucky Gunner is always easy and expedient and if there is ammo at another vendor at a comparable price I will always choose Lucky Gunner due to their quality service and speed in filling and shipping the order.
No misfires or misfeeds and all 1" groups at 100 yards from my new Browning BAR Hog Stalker with Burris Fullfield E1 2-7x 35mmm scope. I have alway liked PMC in handgun calibers (.38, .357, 9mm) and this .308 target ammo seems to be excellent as well. I plan to buy more soon.
I am buying second case of PMC FMJBT. The first case I went through was flawless. I was testing my new sig716 and well it is a sig; and with ammo like this and a good rifle I have the confidence needed to carry this ammo in the field. I will continue to purchase this ammo as long as the rate if fair. God bless
I have to say the ammo looks good, feeds and cycles well in my Armalite AR-10a. This is very cheap ammo and semi accurate. I was shooting at 100 yards and I got consistant groups with a few flyers.....meaning off a couple inches. Good practice or range ammo, nothing I would take to a match. I haven't had a chance to shoot this past 100 yards so I can't tell you how bad it will drop. LG is high on everything, but this is a good deal and shipping was right on time. If you want sniper accuracy or put bullets through bullet holes try something different.
Nice shooting round. I haven't had a single misfire after 400 or so rounds, but have been frustrated with the accuracy. I'll get a couple of tight groupings then a couple that are all over the place at 100 yards (2 or 3 inches apart). I will take what feels like the perfect shot on bags and hit the bulls eye, size of a quarter at 100 yards. The next shot comes in 2 or three inches off. Could be my in experience with 308s but some how I doubt it. My roupings are a lot better with my Sako Finbear 30-06. Maybe it's the rifle? After shooting these out of my CMMG MK3 , I have been eyeing Gun Vices to see if it is the Gun, Me or the ammo. After reading other reviews I get the feeling its the ammo. Maybe I shouldn't talk until I try the gun with some match grade ammo.
I needed some practice rounds as we are planning an Elk hunt in 2014, is just what we needed to sight guns plus get some idea of scopes we will need.since some of our firearms are new no miss fires. hit targets 300 yds every time tested with good success at 600 yards good results.
A head-to-head comparison of this PMC ammo was done at 100 yds, using a Sig 716 with Geissele SSA trigger, Vortex Crossfire II 4-12 x40 AO scope. From the bench, match ammo (Federal Premium Matchking .308 Sierra BTHP 168 gr) provided sub-MOA precision. Nice weather, very little wind.
I shot the PMC next and it was all over the place, maybe 4+ MOA? 20 rounds shot, seriously ~6" between some of the impacts.
The price point is attractive, but I would only use this under 50 yds, perhaps for training purposes or large target shooting?
Waiting for Spring to try out the ammo. Good price. Quality packing and good delivery. Rounds look to be good quality. Will review performance when I order again. I have always been pleased with Lucky Gunner.
New to PMC. Typically keep std USA brands / military ammo. Heard good things from ex-mil / contractor & at shows. In this case, (Savage Mod 10F .308Win Konus Pro scope) PMC held slightly tighter groups @ 100 yds. than Federal Match. While each weapon likes various ammo, PMC performed well enough that we will likely try other PMC calibers. As a minimum, a good range round. Usually cheaper as well. Regarding Lucky Gunner, we're repeat purchasers. No problems with this company except actual count on some of the loose packaged ammo.
I will always purchase my ammo and accessories from Lucky Gunner...they always can be trusted.
by DJ on 1/10/2014
All the ammo I have bought from Lucky Gunner has always performed as advertised or better. Your availability of ammo is spectacular as is the selection. Couple this with a fair price and well packaged,fast delivery...and it surely wins a five star revue!
I have thrown about 250 rounds down range in both a Sig Sauer 716 and an old, but very accurate, Savage, lever action single shot. I had not one hiccup with any of the rounds. No failure to fire, no failure to feed all went bang when you pulled the trigger. Groups at 200 yards were very acceptable for my ageing eyes. Using a bench rest for many of the rounds ( sand bag for the front hand guard and my shoulder for the back ), 4" groups and less were most common. I even had several that were on top of each other. Not too shabby!
Lucky Gunner has always been very quick on shipping with reasonable shipping rates, excellent prices and exceptional service. I had a case of 22 ammo break open from the shipper a while back. Some of the rounds, I think there were about 20 or so, were missing. I made a quick call to LG and before I knew it, I had a new box of 50. That is service above and beyond. It can't be beat, at any price.
Would I recommend Lucky Gunner, Absolutely. Besides, y'all've seen the picture of Heidi.... what more can I say!
I purchased 500 rounds of PMC 308 Winchester (7.62 NATO) 147 grs FMJ-BT range ammo from the LuckyGunner.
I loaded my Sig R716-16B-P-FDE mounted with an Aimpoint PRO sight.
From a sitting position, I rested the rifle with bi-pod attached on a table and fired off 10 rounds at an Aimpoint zeroing target (M01590) 26 yards down range. The result: Dead center on the bull with a group within the diameter of a quarter.
I fired off another hundred rounds and the rifle, the Aimpoint Pro, and the ammo performed flawlessly.
The LuckyGunner provided me with excellent ammo, pricing, service, and delivery. I will definitely purchase from them again!
I had used other PMC ammo in other calibers and found it to be reliable,modestly priced and fairly clean shooting.Ran a few boxes through my CETME without any issues.It is not match grade but good enough to be pretty consistent,making shooting this caliber more affordable.Order processing and delivery was quick just as it should be.LG will definitely be on the top of my go to short list.
I have been using PMC for a while in other calibers. Works great. Lucky Gunner has fast and reasonable shipping compared to others. Excellent fast delivery on all purchases from them. Great job! Love doing business with you!
Just received my 500 rounds of PMC 308 today. This is the second time I order from LuckyGunner. I requested extra box for shipping, free of charge. I love what I see when I open the box. No damages. I am so happy!! Great company. 6 Stars!
I recently went out an fired the first half if this purchase back mid OCT and shot my Sig 716 only had 1 failure to extract in the first shot; after making the adjustment to my rifle as per the manual the following 259 rounds went off without a hitch. This was the first time out with this rifle and therefore the time between rounds in the beginning was longer than after about 10-15 rounds then I went through some mag dumps and cleaning, and after that the rest of the ammo was long distance practice100yrds+.. Next weekend fired the following 240 and they went great! pleasant time shooting. it was a good deal the the time and have since then found none better that I feel comfortable ordering from. I have ordered from LG many times and will continue to do so.
This is your standard target/range round. Very good price VERY good product. If you need ammo for the range this is it! I use this in my DPMS LR308 with no issues! Will order again. Lucky Gunner gets ALL of my business these days! Thanks again!
I shot these 308's in my new Sig 716. I sighted in my red dot at 50 yards. used 10 shots. The last six were in bull and less than 1/2 inch apart. It works for me and mine. The only problem I had was the price went down $20 per 500 the day after I bought them. Very satisfied with Lucky Gunner in their quick delivery, the best of anyone I deal with.
PMC is always a good round runs clean lucky gunner ships fast lucky gunner is the company to deal with if you're looking for ammo . putting in another order now the price is right works great in my FAL and my HK
Ordered this on Tuesday, order arrived on Friday morning. Went to the range with my wife and son, shot up about 200 rounds over a couple of hours at McMillers. Wife shoots a Ruger Gunsite Scout, I shoot a Springfield M1a Scout. Ammo works great. I can still outshoot my Army son with a rifle. He's used to his M4, we get ammo for his AR15 from Lucky Gunner also. His AR was a birthday gift. Anyway, alway happy to deal with Lucky Gunner, never a problem with them or their ammo. Thanks, Dutchdirkk
Been in outdoor range every other week and spent hundreds of these. Shoots 100 yards-bulls eye, 200 yards-ding, 300 yards-dong, 400 yards & 500 yards respectively using my ruger with nikon scope. I will keep buying PMC not only affordable, they are accurate as well. Lucky Gunner keep up your good service.
I bought this to use in my new SA M1A Scout Squad. Using a Leupold FXII 2.5x28 Scout Scope, this ammo
will put consistently shoots MOA +/- .25 inch from a bench with these old eyes. I wouldn't call this ammo
dirty either; I've shot a lot that was dirtier. After shooting it, I ordered another 500 rounds of PMC Bronze.
Lucky Gunner is the best. Order on Sunday, on my doorstep Wednesday morning. Most of the others I've
dealt with haven't even started to process my order by then.
My rock river lar-8 loves this stuff . 250 rounds with no problems at all ... accurate with my weapon 3" group at 200 yrds . will continue to buy this , why look at something else when this works so well.
Performed flawlessly in my LRB M25. I purchased this ammo for barrel break in and I expected the accuracy to be consistent with price This ammo is not as accurate as the 168 gr. match BT at 3X the price, but this ammo is very accurate considering the price. Ammo is a great value.
My MIA loves this round which I have used since the early 80's. Never a failure to feed and never a misfire. Although not match grade, I have experienced very good accuracy at reasonable combat ranges out to 300 yards. Very dependable and far superior to the Russian made round.

Q: Can I shoot this ammo through my Galil Ace 76 2 x 51?
Posted On: 8/17/2019
By: Paul Queen
A: Hi Paul. The PMC will work well in your Galil rifle. It is designed to function well with both 7.62x51 and .308 Win ammo.
Q: If you look at the reviews, the newer reviews talk of terrible accuracy for the most part, and the older reviews praisr the ammo for good accuracy.
Has PMC had a recent QC control problem with this round, or overall ?
Thanks. Looking to stock up soon, and am concerned about using other spec rounds using bimetal bullets in SS barrel. Is my concern using rounds that are bi metal causing accelerated wear in SS. M1A ? I was consifering the PMC since it uses copper jacket until I read of the dissppointing accuracy
Many thanks. Your site is great !
Posted On: 4/9/2019
A: Hi Jeb!. This PMC round is one of the highest quality rounds we sell, but it is a range grade ammo. I have found that it is "battle accurate" through about 500 yards, and in some rifles a bit tighter than that. If you are looking for a great quality round that is acceptable for a non-match grade rifle and gives you acceptable accuracy, then look no further. If you want to wring the most out of your rifle, we offer a lot of high accuracy match rounds that will serve you better.
As to the wear on bimetallic bullets on the barrel, all of our military 7.62 ball ammo is bimetallic and is used in everything from rifles to machine guns and there is not a significant amount of wear over any other composition of bullet. The layer of steel is so soft and thin that is has no affect on the barrel.
Q: Do these rounds have crimped primers
Posted On: 4/4/2019
A: Hi Jim. The PMC 308 does not have crimped primers.
Q: Is the bullet copper jacked or bi-metal?
Posted On: 3/18/2017
By: Tom Chang
A: Hello Tom,
This PMC ammunition is loaded with a copper jacketed, lead core projectile and does not contain any steel.

Q: Is this brass reloadable?
Posted On: 11/10/2016
A: Hello Bobby,
