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.

Older versions fine, most recent purchase bad
As a previous reviewer last year noted, the recent batches jam almost 100% of the time in my semi-auto; fortunately they work in my Governor just fine. It’s just a lot harder to burn through 1000 rounds at the range with a six-shooter than a Glock with an extended mag.
I try to purchase PMC ammo because it's reliable, clean and generally a good buy. I use it for target shooting, but more than acceptable for everyday carry. I gave four stars for price because most ammunition is becoming too expensive. Lucky Gunner is a great place to order from. Never an issue with the order, packaging or delivery!
Great shooting ammo for my SBR
I have a Thompson M1A1 SBR and its pretty finicky when it comes to cheap ammo. Not in this case, it ran through 800 rounds without a miss fire. I will be buying another 1000 rds very soon. Thanx Lucky Gunner!
Quality is outstanding. Super consistent. Range ammo at its finest.
My experiences with lucky gunner, have always been above board.
Outstanding variety and price points for the various types of ammo I use. They are always my go to supplier.
The most consistent performer I have run. I use it mainly as a target/practice load, it is clean and functions in all my guns from a Ruger Blackhawk, a Remington R1, and even the SA XDS. Never an issue, always clean, and has a very consistent speed through the Chrono (of course for the same gun). The quality control is outstanding.
The PMC ammo is consistent clean, never fails to function, it is the go to round for most of my 45 ACP needs. A few guns are finicky about some ammo, but this never causes problems. This will always be a favorite and a must have in my inventory. The FMJ round is not necessarily the best personal protection, but as far as the reliability and function it will always have a place in my clips.
I love PMC Ammo. I also love the very fast shipping from LuckyGunner.com. You can not ask for better people to do business with. PMC Ammo always works, just like it should, without any problems. I have shot thousands of rounds of PMC, never a complaint of any kind.
All ammo is subject to the weapon that fires it .This ammo real reliable been shooting awhile.For todays standerds its better than target ammo in my humbel opp I dont ever wont to be shot buy a (fmj) that would be ugly god bless be safe.
My Glock21 loves this ammo, I shoot much better knowing the ammo is going to be the best you can buy. Plus I can reload without worry of getting bad brass.I will be ordering 1000 rounds more today. I will end up buying only this ammo for my .45acp from now on. Thanks for a great product. Cliff K
just bought a new glock 30 gen 4 and needed some ammo to put through it and ran across this stuff. Price was the best available and now i'm hooked. I've ordered it ever since when it's available. Dont think twice about buying this ammo. Shipping was fast and on time. Have never had a problem when working with this company.
It does what it is supposed to
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.
great product. shot 150 rounds thru my glock 21 and 100 rounds thru my Glock 41 with no mis-fires or jams used this ammo in the past with no problems. fast shipping thank you and lucky gunner will be my new place for ammo purchases
Excellent value - good shooting
Bought 1,000 rounds for my HK USP compact and my SIg Sauer P220 - both carry weapons. Have only fired 50 rounds thus far, but no failures to feed, fire or eject. Shot well at combat ranges, able to chew the X out in no time flat. Prompt delivery, even for us in California.
Great product - even greater service.
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.
started off, staying with
PMC was the first brand I shot through my XDm. Used it for my CC class, use it for practice, and I have been nothing but pleased with it. LG customer service was very pleasant and knew their business. Recieved my order in 3 days. Arrived in perfect condition. I WILL be ordering again!
Good Product. Good Service
Terrific ammo. Great service. Good price. My only complaint was coming home at the end of the day to find the box sitting on my front steps marked "SMALL ARMS AMMUNITION! CAUTION - LIVE AMMUNITION!" in big bold letters. I'm lucky nobody walked off with it. Still, I like Lucky Gunner.
I've Fired 1500 Rounds of this through my Springfield Arms XD 45 & also a Llama 1911 45 Pistol, Great ammo, shoots nice and will work great in most any gun. I will be buying lots more !! great ammo for the price !
I've shot maybe 1000 rds of 230Gr FMJ PMC threw my Sig 1911. Only had two FTF's and they had to happened during my CHG Qualification, (Go Figure). Went out this weekend and shot another 150Rds, Not a single problem. Good Stuff.
I have shot a few hundred rounds of this through my Sig 1911 with good results. A few times I've had a little bit of a feeding problem but not bad at all. Maybe one in a hundred shots. What I am writing this review about though is Lucky Gunner. This is the best site I've ever done ammo business with. Super fast service at a good price. Keep up the good work guys. Roy
Only will useif I have to.
FTF problems with my Sig 1911XO. First round in mags would not feed. Would have to recycle then the rest of the 7 would fire. Noticed bass to be thinner then the Winchester. Had no problems when I switched to the Winchester.
Really disappointing ammo. Jams like crazy in my Glock 30 SF. Had to do real time shift from my G30 to my Sig in real time during timed CCW quals. Perfect score, but would have been dead if up against bad guy. Stick to what law enforcement uses.
Excellent product, good price, and outstanding 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.
A Great Value & lightening FAST shipping
PMC .45 ACP ammo and Lucky Gunner can't be beat. This ammo feeds perfect and is consistantly dependable & accurite!
Better not take a chance and wait to long.....NOW is the time to stock-up. No Telling what those Bozos in DC are going to do next!
Great price, clean shootin!
I have been using a different brand in my Glock 21 and it leaves a ton of residue on my hands, arms, and cloths. I put 200 rounds of this through my SR-1911 and around 200 through my Glock and had no residue after shooting, also keeps my guns very clean. Would deffinety recomend and plan on another order very soon. Luckygunner.com will have my business for life, very fast shipping, can't beat a 2 day turnaround!
Not Bad for the Money
Shot a few hundred rounds through the Springfield, Desert Eagle, Double Star and CZ 97 with absolutely no problems. Good stuff, I recommend it. This is my fourth order from LG and as Arnold says "I'll Be Back".
Good stuff for the price. Accurate, No misfeeds or failures to eject.
Ran close to a thousand rounds through a Desert Eagle, Double Star, Springfield, (all 1911s), along with a CZ 97 with no problems whatsoever. Lucky Gunner is a pleasure to deal with, cannot beat the prices or 2 to 3 day delivery.
Shoots well, leaves a bit more crud than I'd prefer
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.
Great ammo, Delivery time was just as good as the ammo I got 300rds. and not a misfire or any trouble at all I will be getting more ammo Good Job guys and Gals.
This is good ammo, I had no problems with it at all, I got 300Rds and shot all of them in one morning. My Glock wasnt dirty at all it surprised me. I will be buying more for sure. The 45 functions well and you guys are on the ball as far as getting the product to me. Good Job guys keep up the good work. Steve
Great Prices, Quality Ammo, The BEST in Customer Satisfaction.
I have been using LuckyGunner.com for a couple of years and I have to say it is The Best place on the internet to order from. You have competitive pricing, have the ammo in stock, and the longest I've had to wait for my order is 3 days. Never had a problem with my orders. ever.... I'm a Firearms Instructor and in every class I highly Recommend LuckyGunner to my students for their shooting supplies and most definately their ammo. Keep on doing what your doing I'll be your customer for ever. Mike
PMC It Doesn't Get Any Better For The Value
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.
Very good buy for the money and service is great.
This is the second 1000 rounds of this ammo I have bought. I is clean and accurate, and basically has preformed flawlessly in both my Glocks and Sig's . I plan on purchasing as much of this stuff as I can at this price.
was there in estimated time, great service
value was not the best. bought 2000 rnds for 70.00$ cheaper from wallyworld.no shiping and handling and each box was 6.00$ cheaper.But when I needed it I was able to obtain it with no problems. Very convienent.
well worth the price
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.
