PMP 45ACP ammo

Does anyone have any information on South African PMP 45 ACP ammunition? The box I fired was brass cased 230 gr. FMJ. It worked fine in a Springfield GI 45 but the recoil was much sharper than WW whitebox or Remington bulk pack ( the Wal-mart ammo).

I've shot and chrono'd a bit of this stuff. Don't have my notes in front of me, but as memory serves it was doing 860 fps or so out of the 5" gun I used. So perhaps a little on the hot side, but no pressure signs observed.

I've recently burned up a case of this stuff, and had 0 failures, and it did seem a bit warmer
than the other 'budget' ammo with my hand chrono.....

Re: PMP 45ACP ammo

i am not being purely patriotic but i think PMP is very good quality ie consistant , clean burning , excellent brass for those that reload . old days gripes were a limited bullet weight but i believe thats been remedied with the addition of 2 more popular loads.
