The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimated there were more than 8.4 million first-time gun owners in 2020. With so many new gun owners, they might be happy to learn what experienced gun enthusiasts know: The PMC .223 bronze 55-grain ammo delivers reliability and quality at an affordable price.

PMC Ammunition .223 a Popular Choice for Good Reason

The .223 centerfire rifle ammunition is probably the most popular single rifle cartridge for AR-15s. It is a good option for hunters, target shooters, or those who enjoy just plinking. If your range forbids ammo that can attract a magnet, the PMC .223 Bronze is nonmagnetic. It does not have a steel core.

Let’s look at the features of this cartridge.

Benefits of Bronze

The PMC .223 ammo is made of bronze, which the company says bridges a gap for target shooters or hunters who get genuine pleasure from challenging themselves, shot after shot, to become better marksmen.

Because the ammunition comes in new brass casings, the cartridges are non-corrosive, which helps make them reliable. They feature Boxer primers. At the factory, the cartridges are loaded to SAAMI specifications to improve safety and reliability.

High-Performing Ammo and Cost-Effective, Too

So, whether you are a recreational shoot or an experienced rifleman, you can enjoy high-performance velocity from ammunition that is accurate and cost-effective, PMC said.

Because the ammunition is affordable and availability is high (even when the demand for ammunition is great), it’s easier on the wallet when you want to head to the range and get some practice in. Also, when you go hunting, you can bring plenty of ammo with you.

Boxer Primers Mean Easier Reloading

If you are a high-volume shooter, the PMC .233 cases can be reloaded several times. Because it’s brass-cased, you can harvest the brass afterward and reload. The ammo features a Boxer primer with a single flash hole. The primer is easier to knock off and remove for reloading purposes. It is also more popular in the United States because they are easier to handle for those who like to handload their ammunition.

Full Metal Jacket-Boat Tail Cartridge

The PMC .223 Remington is a full metal jacket bullet with a boat tail. Unlike jacketed hollow points, FMJ ammo does not expand when it hits a target. Because of this, it is considered to be a better option when game hunting because it will result in less internal damage. FMJ ammo is more likely to result in a “through-an-through,” which could impact something else downrange.

The boat tail design features a tapered bullet toward the base. It gets this name because the ammo looks like the stern of a boat. The idea is to create greater accuracy due to better wind resistance and a more stable flight. The tapered end leads to an increase in ballistic coefficient.

The PMC .223 Remington weighs 55 grains, and it offers a muzzle velocity of 3,200 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1,250 ft. lbs.

PMC Ammo Offers Quality Control

PMC (Precision Made Cartridges) Ammunition’s supplier has a “vertically integrated manufacturing system that allows for precise management of the production process from raw material to finished cartridges.” This allows for quality control during every stage of the manufacturing process of PMC Bronze ammunition.

Ready for High-Quality, High-Performing, Cost-Effective Ammunition?
Consider PMC .223 Ammo

Whether you need quality ammo because you are headed out the range for target shooting or going to hunt small- to medium-sized game, or you just want to have a bit of fun plinking, then you should consider PMC Bronze .233 ammunition.

When you head out to the range for target shooting, you don’t want to worry about how much each round will set you back. These PMC cartridges are easy on the wallet.

If you enjoy the thrill of handloading your ammunition, then this ammo will be right up your alley. As we mentioned, the Boxer primer makes for more streamlined reloading because the primer, with its single flash hole, is much easier to remove than a Berdan primer with dual flash holes.

And, when you hunt, the full metal jacket design of the PMC .223 means there will be less damage done internally to the game because these cartridges are not engineered to open upon impact.

When you purchase your supply of PMC .223 cartridges, you can be confident you are getting time-tested, high-quality, cost-effective, and extremely reliable ammunition. They just work, every time, all the time.
