    I've been seeing PMC Hotshot on sale fairly reasonably and was wondering if anybody in BRF has tried it in their ARs and how does it stack up to other ammo/PMC Bronze?

    I quit using PMC after having had issues in my old 18" build with it. Not only was it dirty has hell, but it started causing FTF and bolt stoppages after 50-60 rounds. I stick to Federal (Federal, American Eagle, and Lake City) for all of my 5.56 and .223 needs now. Hopefully this "Hotshot" runs cleaner than Bronze did for me.

    Ive shots thousands of PMC Bronze out of my AR's. I run it very wet, Im not a big clean freak either... If you cant taste the oil, you're not running it wet enough.
