PMC primers

I have a 1000 PMC small pistol primers I believe are made in Russia. Does anyone know how well they work?

PMC primers are made in South Korea. They are of very good quality.

Chiefr are you sure, mine have 'made in russia' on the individual 100 primer boxes and underneath a fold on the carton. I know PMC cartridges were made in South Korea.

Then they are made in Russia. Primer making is a specialty, so I wouldn't be surprised if South Korea got them from Russia. Russian primers I've tried, like the TulAmmo and Wolf primers have been exceptional. Equal to or better than domestic match primers.

My information could be wrong for what is considered present.
PMC used to make their own primers but that was at least 15- 20 years ago. I think back to that period because I spent time in Korea.
I know PMC has been outsourcing for some time now and the primers could now be coming from Russia.
