    Kel-Tec PMR-30

    Whoaa! I just picked it up.
    Thanks to Carl from FWDG for BS-free service and smooth transaction, as usuall.

    First impression: it is a LIGHT son of a gun!
    I have never owned any of Kel-Tec guns before, so this is my first experience with them. What really kept my attention is their fearless attempts to make something new, something risky, something that enyone else would not even tried due to many complications. Kel-Tec started in 1991 as a general CNC machine shop, and shortly after that they became most innovative firearms manufacturer in the world. Sometimes they faile, but it does not stop them from moving forward. Another good aspect is that they always stay behind their products, from what I have heard and read. All these made me curious and I decided to take a chance and try PMR-30 - the one of their wildcats that is most attractive to me.
    I am going to take it to the range next weekend, will keep you updated.

    It looks tough! I've shot Mike's a few times and it's always surprising that it seems the mag will never empty!
    Very nice

    Yep! Thirty 40-grain legit reasons to win the argument.
    Actually, 30+1

    Must say that mine has been very reliable and not picky with ammo.

    One thing I like about the PMR is it's very user serviceable and you can practically replace any part of the gun.

    Great, sounds very inspiring!
    Have you shot plated led too, or TMJ/FMJ only? How about 30- and 50-grain loads?
    I did not shoot mine yet. Got one box of 40-grain CCI Maxi-Mag Jacketed HP, 1875 fps declared velocity.

    Re: Kel-Tec PMR-30

    I shoot mainly CCI Maxi-Mag 40 grain.

    Otherwise ive tried a least 200rd of each brand with great results.
    Only a few FTF.
    Winchester (40gr)
    Armscor(40gr)

    Hornaday FTX (45gr)
    Works great if you load 20 or less...the casing is noticeably softer and will dent as you load the mag and thus will cause FTFs

    so are you guys using round nose bullets or the polymer filled hunting rounds?

    Hollow points, I'm told (heresay), are problematic
