The Poongsan Corporation of South Korea was established in 1968 and is known for working nonferrous metals including copper, titanium and other metals. The Poongsan Corporation started the Angang ammo plant in 1973, marking the start of Precision Made Cartridges (PMC). At first, the goal was for the plant to allow South Korea to provide for all of their own ammunition needs. The plant did so well, however, that production overruns bearing the PMC name were soon being sold on the open market. PMC is proud that they manufacture nearly all of their components for making ammunition. PMC is able in this way to establish standards and maintain strict quality control through the entire process of manufacturing.
When consumers buy ammo from PMC today, it's no longer just surplus ammunition. The product line for PMC as well as the selection of calibers they offer has expanded to address many diverse shooting needs in addition to those of the military in South Korea. PMC produces more than just 5.56 ammo and 9mm cartridges to include manufacturing non-military calibers like .44 Magnum.
Full metal jacket bullets are the standard for military ammunition around the globe, and PMC produces some of the best there is. Their product line, however, also includes ammo for hunters, competitive shooters, and people who want ammo for self defense and personal protection.
PMC makes X-TAC MATCH ammunition with bullets made by Sierra and their own components to offer benchrest and long distance competitive shooters a world class competition round. They offered this ammo in .223 and .308 calibers. For shooters who need a good round for practicing, the PMC Bronze line is an economical choice that does not sacrifice quality.
PMC offers High Velocity Magnum Hunting Loads that shotgunners will appreciate. The shot is plated with copper and carried in cups which are designed to deliver dense patterns with uniformity for maximum performance. PMC also sells their Starfire handgun hunting ammunition that also works for self defense. This ammo is a great choice for either application due the rapidly expanding hollow point design.
PMC recently began selling Low Velocity Buckshot to be used by law enforcement agencies and for home defense. Homeowners are enabled to use the shotgun as a defensive tool by this ammunition when previously prevented by the heavy recoil of standard 12 gauge buckshot loads.
PMC sells a wide variety of high quality competition, hunting and personal protection ammunition. PMC has earned a good reputation for quality and affordability, and will likely continue to be a significant presence in the ammunition market for many years.
