Anyone used this stuff?

their website

500 rounds for $89? on auction

It's not my auction... I found it and was curious if anyone had experience/opinions. It's supposed to be lighter, which I agree would be a benefit.

You won't catch me using it. It's not in the Ammunition Review and Reference thread. I have never shot it; however, most of the reviews I have read in this forum are not good. It has to be somewhat underpowered - the wall thickness of a polymer cartridge case is much thicker than a corresponding brass or steel cartridge case. Therefore the casing holds less powder. I have heard of bullets pushing in and the brass base separating from the polymer casing on extraction. But, research the threads in here in the ammo section -- you'll find more opinions from those who have actually fired this stuff.

I'd be curious to see what Dr. Roberts has to say about it.

Thanks for the links.

Watched a shooter who was in a 3 day Carbine class with me in July who used this stuff. he claimed he had used it before with out a problem, Our class was 95F every day with 105-110F Heat Index and he had two squib loads that left the bullet lodged in the barrel. No thanks, I'll pass.
