Caution with PMC Primers...

n/an/a Member Posts: 168,427
We purchase ammunition from a local commercial ammunition manufacturer and he recently had to resort to using PMC primers b/c he could not get the primers he usually used (this was for the .45 Colt). Our customers experienced quite a few hard primers, hang fires, and even one squib load that left a bullet in a barrel. The owner of the manufacturing company sent some samples off to two different Universities for testing and the primers were bad.

I've never used PMC Primers and this was our manufacturer's first experience with them...needless to say, they did not impress us.

He had to recall over 100 boxes of ammo...most of which were already sold to the general public.
