- Q & A
You have an AR-15 chambered for .223 Remington, and it’s hungry. And when you take it out for training time, especially to hone your long-range skills, your AR doesn’t want a quick snack; it wants a banquet. With 1,000 rounds in this box of ammunition, you’ll finally be able to give your rifle the meal it wants. Because it’s PMC, you know you’re getting quality trusted worldwide, and you’re also getting it at a good price. You simply cannot go wrong.
These are FMJBT (full metal jacket boat-tail) rounds, making them just what you need for target practice, tactical training, and plinking – but especially for longer distances. Their FMJ means they don’t expand, and the BT increases stability and makes accuracy on longer shots possible. They’re also non-corrosive, so they’re easier on your rifle, and reviewers say they keep your gun cleaner than typical target ammunition, too. Fresh brass cases and boxer priming mean they can be reloaded, so if you collect all your spent brass, you could actually get twice as much value for your investment.
When you’re focused on improving your long-range accuracy, you want a round with the capacity for real speed, and this ammunition has it. At 55 grain they’re light, which enables them to move even faster. They leave your muzzle with a velocity of 3,195 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 1,246 foot-pounds. By loading your rifle with these PMC rounds, you’re getting the chance to put some real work into your distance marksmanship skills.
PMC has decades of experience manufacturing ammunition and is a world leader in production. By ordering PMC ammunition, you’re relying on the same rifle rounds trusted by members of the military all around the globe. And at 1,000 rounds in this box, when you finish it, you won’t be the same shooter you were when you started out. Your AR is calling your name, and it wants range time. Don’t let it down!

Great Ammoon 9/26/2016
I have used over 450 rounds, and they have performed great. Used them for target practice from 25 to 100 yards. Highly recommend this product.

Consistent and ideal ammo for the range and the gun!on 8/1/2016
Been shooting these rounds for years...have never had a problem and feel good about putting these through the gun. Price is on par with other sites with low prices (if not slightly cheaper).
A good dealon 7/20/2016
Good price, great availability, fast shipping. Does it get any better than this?
Would definitely buy your ammo againon 1/13/2016
Just bought a new AK, the dealer threw in a box of teflon coated jackets, which I would never use again. The ammo I bought from you was far superior, and I especially like the boat tail design as it seems more accurate.
Great range ammoon 11/25/2015
I have an RR Predator Pursuit with 20in barrel. Several hundred rounds thru the weapon. This ammo is very accurate in this rifle. Flawless reliability. I have found other brands of ammo cheaper, but they have not been as accurate...so it's worth this marginally higher cost.
Very good ammo for the priceon 10/15/2015
The first time I shot this ammo was off a lead sled at my gun club. I was shooting at 100 yards with no wind on a 70 degree morning. All 40 shots were in a 3" group. I would say this is not the most accurate ammo I have used. I have run Hornady 69 grain bthp through my AR with outstanding success. The PMC ammo is adequate enough, just not for accuracy. I also used this ammo for tactical rifle training classes and had great success, shooting from 10-25 yards. The price was great and the ammo was reliable. No jams and very little powder residue left in the barrel.
great stuffon 9/4/2015
Great performance and clean burning, no failures, my s&w ar 15 loves this ammo!
good ammo, great priceon 12/29/2014
Good ammo, great price. Ran 250 rounds already with no problems.
Love running PMCon 3/11/2014
Have ran about 1,500 rounds of PMC across 3 calibers, .45, .223, and .308, and I have never had a falure of any sort due to the ammo. I had a few failure to feeds with the .45 in a 1911 with 10 round mags but that was 100% the fault of the magazine not the ammo. I try and run PMC whenever possible for cheap reliable ammo. I would run pmc through my AK but the local store doesn't carry pmc in 7.62x39. Thinking about buying in bulk off of here but ak ammo is pretty pricey if you are avoiding steel case/steel jacketed ammo. It costs more than .308 FMJ-BT ammo, and that doesn't even make sense...
Glad to find it availableon 3/28/2013
Good ammo. Amazingly fast shipping! EXPENSIVE...but AVAILABLE, and I was so glad to find it. I'll be back for more because of the great service. Hopefully the ammo supply will catch up to the demand so we can see prices come back down.
Good quality for good priceon 3/22/2013
I came across this product and like it not only for its price, but also for that I need. I did not need ammo that are extreme but to use for range practice.

- Well, that's a little more than we're able to help you with, I'm afraid! I'd recommend you that ask an enthusiast or professional expert for hands-on instruction. You'll also find an abundance of information on YouTube, but nothing can substitute for hands-on instruction while you're learning to operate a firearm.
