    Lucky me, maybe, I have been given a 2-1/2 gallon bucketful of 223 rem once-fired brass headstamped PMC. The fellow gave me one of the empty boxes of ammo and it was this PMC Bronze line, made in Korea. I have never used this brand of foreign ammo or have any experience in reloading it as I always have used LC or new Winchester brass.

    I was thinking about using it for blasting loads that I won't bother picking up or just recycling it, Just would like the opinions of the folks here that have used it to chime in on it's quality. Is it worth using?

    I've had good luck with PMC brass in 7mm Mag and 9mm so I would imagine the .223 would be good as well. If I'm not mistaken the PMC .223 has the military crimp, so you'll have to remove it to seat primers.

    I have loaded hundreds of rounds of PMC brass. I have never had any problems at all. Enjoy!

    Two weeks ago a friend & I shot 100 rds of PMC factory ammo & it shot fine.

    I've reloaded then 2x & they still seem fine.
    I know it's not much experience, but so far so good.

    If I remember about 20+ years ago when PMC was starting out Winchester set them up using their equipment so it was said at the time that its as good as Winchester brass.

    PMC= Good Brass for Reloading.

    Doesn't "grow" as fast as Remington or Federal.

    I've seen PMC that is and some that isn't crimped primers. Might want to at least separate them by hand at first so you don't squish a primer when loading them.
    I've never had trouble with PMC brass, I like it better than Remington .223 brass.

    I recently bought 1k of these for 50.00. I sure wish I'd read this earlier, Stoopid primer crimp :fire: I'm not ordering from Midway again anytime soon, you should see what I'm using to trim with.
