Used their .38 Super FMJ and their .22 Magnum in years past, without any surprises. I think it's about the same level of quality as Winchester White Box/Remington UMC.

I have only used the 125 grain .38 Super. I tested it in a 38 Super pistol with 5" barrel known to be accurate with other types of factory and reloaded ammo. Shooting carefully from the bench, the Armscor ammo was the least accurate ammo I've used in the gun. Velocity was unimpressive IMHO. Chronographed velocity was only 1130 FPS. I haven't tested any of the other Armscor products, and I know it's just a sample size of one, but that was my experience with Armscor ammo.....ymmv

Works great in just about everything I've ran them through. No problems to speak of. Brass is good enough to reload too...

I buy .38 Super ammo from Armscor by the case and I love it. Cycles great and very accurate... price is unbeatable.

I've used their .45 ACP ammunition in the past. The only thing I noticed at that time was their lead bullet seemed softer. They all fired OK and had reasonable accuracy.

I have used some of their 10mm. It seemed a bit hotter than offerings from PPU and Blazer

Although limited, a box of .380 ACP had no issues.

A couple of boxes of .38 Super 125 gr earlier this year when I got my new Pointman 38 to initially break it in. Worked fine, have since moved on to reloads.

Had a kaboom in my FAL using Armscor 308. Arguable if it was the cause (most likely was), but I'll never buy it in that caliber again. Probably any other caliber if there's other options.

I have used their 10mm, 9mm, 40,45,357 mag over the years. It has been reasonable stuff, up until this weekend. I had picked up some 45lc. About 1/3rd would not seat fully into the cylinder because of skewed bullet seating. Another 1/3rd had oddly thick rims and they would hold the cylinder up on rotation. The gun was my new to me freedom arms model 83, i had just cleaned it. I ran a crap ton of other brands through it with no isssues.

Their .22LR was towards the top of the list of twenty some "match" ammo in the recent guns and ammo magazine.
I have yet to test it out but plan to.

They seem to err on the hotter side.

I just bought 500 rounds of 10mm at a gun show, for a great price. I hope my Glock 20 will eat it ok. Will report on results.

I heard somewhere (probably here) that the Armscor 38 Super ammo is loaded to 38 Auto levels, and my own experience with it makes me believe that.

Used some of their 10mm. No issues, seemed loaded light compared with Underwood.

Wonder if OP ever got some Armscor ammo? He seems to have disappeared.
