Only shot one box (.223 Rem) and that was through my 14" T/C Contender. Accuracy was nothing to write home about, though that may have been the grip I had on the T/C at the time. The brass is good if you're a reloader.

[url=http://www.pmp.co.za/products.htm]They have a webpage[/url] with info on their products. Most people comment that it's good ammo, but a little underpowered compared to M193. I usually see it for $140-150/1000, which is not significantly cheaper than Q3131A. Therefore, I haven't tried it myself. The same people also make military ammo, but I don't think it's available in the US. PMP might be the same guys that manufactured the SA battlepacks, but I've never seen "fresh" mil-spec ammo from them.

I like it, a lot. Great brass, and the power level is consistent with any .223 Rem spec ammo. They are the ones that made/make SA military ammo. Larry

good stuff. Not as hot as 3131a. Accurate for low end ammo and some of the best reloadable brass i have ever used. mike

Buy a lot of it if you like to plink and are a reloader. It is usually pretty inexpensive. $140 for 1000 or even less sometimes. Save that brass! Accuracy is as good as anything else I have shot in this category. (.223 Rem 55gr. FMJBT) If you don't want the brass, send it to me!

I find it holds up to 5.56 spec loads as well as (or better) anything else, including LC. Great stuff; I will adopt any unwanted myself. Larry

i shot about 150rds of it today and was pleased. while zeroing my aimpoint i got 3 groups that were less than half an inch at 25yds.

You should expect accuracy to be somewhat less than 2 MOA.

That is high.You can still find Port or SA for much cheaper. I have found the PMP to ok out of my Colt. It will hang in the 3in range if I do my part.

That is a bit stiff for blasting ammo. If your running it through a bolt-gun to get the brass, it beats the hell out of anything else out there.

I've got a case and a half of the .308......I'm hanging on too it! [headbang] Good stuff for new-manufactured ammo..... Saw a place here that had it $4.00 more a box then what you are seeing it for!

I bought a case of PMP .223 when I got my 16" AR. Shot about 500 rounds so far, not a SINGLE hitch. Can't say too much about accuracy, as I use it in carbine matches, which aren't a great way to judge accuracy. I do know that they feed, eject, and cycle my AR just fine. The brass looks good, and is reloadable, but I don't load .223, so I don't keep it. I'd recommend it for blasting/plinking and carbine matches.

AAARRGGHHHH! Dude, if it's not too much trouble you should save it for trade bait, or as a gift to the reloaders among us. Many of them (us) would be willing to pay shipping plus a sixpack or two for 500 of these cases and be very happy.

Maybe I should do that. I have a buddy that got a bolt .223, and I have some dies and powder I could give him. Hell, I still have a few hundred empties in various states of prep. I think I still have 400x 64gr softpoints, some primers and a lb. of powder somewhere....

You ought. It loads better than anything except LC, and no primer crimp to deal with.
