PMC ammunition is not corrosive. It is high-quality ammunition that has gained several industry-leading certifications. Most popular brands of ammunition are available in both pistol and rifle versions.
Pistol Magnum Carbine (PMC) ammunition was developed to provide law enforcement agencies with a cost-effective alternative to traditional magnum revolvers and military-style semi-automatic pistols. The first examples of these weapons appeared on the market around 1990, but they were not commercially successful because they was too expensive. However, as police departments began to adopt more surveillance technology this affordable option became popular. Today, many police departments across the country use PMCs for patrol duties where cost is an issue.
The term "pmc" comes from the abbreviation for pistol-machine carbine. This type of weapon uses some features of both a machine gun and a pistol. They have a large magazine capacity (usually between 10 and 30 rounds) and can be used by one person for short distances or multiple people for longer distances. These guns tend to be lightweight and have an adjustable rear sight for accurate shooting at different ranges.
Corrosive ammunition is not a problem if you clean your weapon as indicated above. I've fired hundreds of rounds of corrosive 8mm and 7.62x54 through my rifles with no issues. The inconvenience of constantly cleaning the weapon is mitigated by the 8 cents per round that I average for these calibres. Corrosive bullets can also be used in non-corrosive weapons to impart color into the firearm.
I would not use corrosive ammunition in any gun not designed to handle it. Such guns include those made before 1950, most target pistols, some revolvers, and some rifles (especially those built from scrounged parts). Even then, be sure to do your research on the specific model you plan to use with corrosive rounds. Some older guns have internal components that may not be able to withstand exposure to sodium hypochlorite.
Also note that some countries have regulations against using certain colors of ammunition in their firearms. For example, in Germany you can only use black, silver, or gray ammunition in your pistol. These restrictions are usually done to prevent use of colored rounds to mark guns owned by law enforcement agencies or individuals. They also serve to make stolen guns easier to trace.
In conclusion, corrosive ammo is not harmful if handled properly. It can be used in any rifle or shotgun that can handle regular ammo without issue.
It's good ammo—I believe the Academy labels it as Monarch, but they're Barnaul or something. I shot them in my WASR (which is about all I can find here) and have had no problems—it is also non-corrosive. The only thing is that it is pretty expensive.
Is it safe to use +P ammo? It is well within the tolerances of current rifles and certainly within the pressure level produced by the proof loads used to test modern firearms. As a result, it's "safe." Manufacturers often build their rifles using standard-pressure ammo, so that's what they're rated for. But if you have a gun that was built specifically for +P ammunition, then feel free to fire it up with +P bullets.
The only real safety issue with +P ammo is the possibility of venting. If the round goes off before it has fully entered the chamber, there is a chance that some of the gas will escape through the ejection port or around other openings in the casing. This could happen when shooting live rounds into an empty chamber or firing practice rounds. As long as you don't exceed published velocities, this should not be a problem.
+P is a term used by gun manufacturers to indicate that the bullet contains primer propellant. This means that it will ignite when fired, producing high pressures that can reach over 1,000 psi. Standard pressure bullets are designed to burn at relatively low pressures of about 70 to 90 pounds per square inch (psi). The higher pressures needed for +P bullets mean that they can withstand greater levels of stress when entering fleshy targets. This gives them a significant advantage over standard pressure bullets in terms of penetration ability.
Military surplus ammunition is as as excellent as, if not better than, commercial ammunition. It can even be worse if it is decades old and has been stored in bad circumstances. Foreign milsurp ammunition availability is too dependent on too many things to count on with assurance, but at least home makers manufacture mil-spec American...
... ammunition so there should be no problem getting hold of it here. The best place to look for mil-spec ammunition is your local defense or gun store, but you can also try online retailers such as Amazon.com. You will usually get a better deal buying in bulk from a good supplier rather than buying single shots one by one at a gun shop.
The advantage of mil-spec ammunition is that it tends to be cheaper than commercial ammunition. This is because the government does not have to mark up the price of used ammunition like they do for new guns so they make their money back through savings on paper and plastic.
There are two main types of mil-spec ammunition: black powder and modern smokeless. Black powder is still made today but only for historical re-enactments or novelty items like frangible bullets. Modern smokeless ammunition uses several components of high technology including propellants, primers, and metals all designed to be fired within a firearm without burning anything else. Some people may not like how modern smokeless ammunition smells when fired, but we think it's a small price to pay for reliable performance.
It is, indeed, corrosive. All ammunition must be stored in a safe, dry place out of reach of children.
Romania imposes export restrictions on some items, so check with your local police department to find out what's allowed in your area. Also make sure you know how to handle and store any ammunition that you do bring into the country.
Here are some tips for storing your ammunition:
– Always keep your guns unloaded until you're ready to use them. The moment you put a round in the chamber, it's too late!
– Never write down or record the serial number of any ammunition container. Should damage occur due to a lost or stolen item, this number can help identify its owner.
– Avoid bringing home souvenirs from other countries. Local laws may not allow these items into Romania and they could end up in the trash.
– If you lose your gun, don't worry about it. The best thing to do is report it to your local police department.
