PolyCase Ammunition is a brand new company that recently released their new .380 ACP ammo. The caliber is not as unique as the polymer that the cases are made of. The company talks about how plastic is:
- Easier to come by than brass
- Lighter (military troops and planes can carry more ammo)
- “Green”- plastic produces less carbon emission than brass during the creation process, and PolyCase cases are recyclable.
PolyCase meets SAAMI standards with their .380 ACP line, and they plan to come out with .45ACP and 9mm later this year. If they ever get to rifle calibers, perhaps they can apply for the U.S. Army’s FBO solicitation from last year which we covered here on TFB.
The one drawback is that these cases cannot be reloaded. Of course, you’re probably wondering how they shoot. The folks over at Guns.com have a video for us:
