PMC’s vertical integration philosophy allows for very reliable quality control of every PMC component each step of the way in the manufacturing process.
Because PMC’s supplier produces every component in the manufacturing of all center fire pistol and rifle cartridges, it does not rely upon the quality control of other manufacturers.
All sporting ammunition is produced to either SAAMI or US Military Specification standards (MIL SPEC). PMC quality control is governed by the highly sought after ISO Bureau Veritas quality certification standards.
PMC ammunition is loaded in new brass cases with boxer primers. The ammunition is non-corrosive and is loaded to SAAMI specifications with the exception of 50A, 5.56X and 5.56K. Each of these rounds complies with MIL SPEC.
All PMC ammunition is reloadable. Rifle ammunition may have crimped military primers. In reloading, the crimped first needs to be removed before a new primer can be inserted. Most major reloading companies can provide a tool to accomplish this operation.
PMC’s supplier owns and operates the brass mill that produces the brass strip from which all brass cartridge cups are made.
Manufacturing all sporting ammunition in-house means not only that our supplier controls the total product quality, but also that our supplier is not dependent on other ammunition component manufacturers when shortages may occur.
