Has anyone used these? I found a ton ofthese in small rifle in stock. I noticed they were made in Russia and looked almost identical to wolfs except packaging color.

I've used a lot of pmc primers for shot gun and and some large pistol... never had a failure.
PMC is supposed to be introducing a new, very clean burning "range safe" primer that is heavy metal and aluminum free.
Maybe these are starting to hit the market?

Oh, BTW, If any of you get some of the pmc primers please post up where they were made.
I think pmc moved all of it's operations to Korea after it shut down it's US plant(s)? ...some of the PMC amo I've seen of late looks like Wolf.
I've seen multiple people asking about these but neglecting to list a source. I'm gonna have to track people down and beat 'em if I don't see a source soon :p

I bought a large quantity of these PMC small rifle Magnum primers yesterday and they are the "heavy metal free" version made by Wolf that come in the green boxes instead of the Wolf red boxes.
The manufacturing dates of the cases I bought...and all that I saw.. were all July 2004. They were packaged in the same Murom Apparatus Producing plant cases that are used for all Wolf primers. Even the numbering system is the same, however the numbers are different because of the heavy metal free configuration. Part number is KVB223EM and boxes are marked NTSRM.
You can find more info here:
It appears that these are old inventory but primers have a 25 year + shelf life....so they are good for at least another 20 years.
I am seeing these selling on gunbroker today for $89 / 1000.
The source that was selling these locally had them for $149.99 / 5000
Initially it was reported that this source had three pallets delivered. When I was there yesterday afternoon there were only about (30) 5K cases left. I doubt they will last through the weekend...

The problem I had with the older pmc "clean primers" from the Clinton era was that they seemed to loose their fizz after a few years. They too were supposed to have a 25 year shelf life.
Let us know how they work for you.
I heard somewhere that the "green" primers attacted moisture more easily. No confirmation though.........
