PCP’s polymer cased .308 Win. ammunition is finally in limited production. I have been waiting for this to come to market for a long time. Previous polymer cased ammunition suffered a number of problems and so I am looking forward to test this ammunition developed for the Pentagon.
Initially they are only producing limited quantities and selling it to consumers who apply for it and are willing to provide feedback. This may seem like an off business model, but in other industries such as the technology sector, this is common practice. Google, for example, only sell the Google Glass device to people after a telephone interview!

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.
