Ammunition is expensive, and a good part of that cost is the brass required to make the case. It’s the reason why the cheap bulk ammo providers (like Wolf and Brown Bear) use steel instead, and the reason that Hornady decided to use steel for their cheap match grade ammo line. But some people don’t like the thought of steel in their chamber, and the metal is difficult to work with. PCP Ammunition (not to be confused with the drug of the same name) is finally beta testing their line of polymer cased ammunition with a small group of volunteers to validate that their stuff works before putting it on sale. Needless to say, we’ve been promised a box or two of the stuff as soon as it’s ready. For the info on how to volunteer to test some ammo, make the jump for the company’s presser.
PCP Ammunition Company set to release limited production of .308 polymer cased ammunition.

After several years of engineering research, development, testing, and production planning, PCP Ammunition is pleased to offer its .308 polymer cased ammunition to the commercial market. This is the ﬁrst time in history that a ammunition manufacturer has offered high performance polymer cased riﬂe ammunition to the commercial market. Prior to this initial civilian release PCP Ammunition was recently awarded contracts with the US Government Department of Defense to deliver advanced lightweight polymer sub-sonic ammunition and an improved .50 caliber precision round.
We are offering this limited release of production to a select number of consumers. We are limiting the production initially to allow for user feedback that validates our test results. PCP Ammunition and certiﬁed third party testing facilities have performed thousands of tests on this product and we are conﬁdent in it’s safety and performance. The ammunition is loaded to SAAMI speciﬁcations. We are extremely interested in the feedback of our ﬁrst group of civilian consumers. Although we have tested the ammunition in numerous weapon platforms, we have by no means tested them all. Please use only in ﬁrearms that are in good condition and free of defects. If you have any questions about the compatibility of your ﬁrearm with our ammunition, please contact us prior to using it.
