    From what I understand, Korean Hotshot is the same as PMC. If it is PMC, $275 is an outstanding price. It's been a long time since I've seen factory new, brass-cased ammo under $300.

    I just ordered a case of it myself. If it wasn't for several thousand dollars of unexpected expenses that just popped up for me in the last week, I would have ordered a lot more.

    I think the hotshot is berdan primed, so if easy reloading is a desire...

    Wow, I don't know anything about this ammo, but even if it is corrosive I'd still order it, heck a cheap. I clean thoroughly after every shoot with my AR.
