Default SOLD: 9mm, .380 & .45 PPS Performance Ammo (San Diego)

The entire lot has been sold.

While cleaning house I found a small selection of some of the best performance ammo ever made by Personal Protection Systems Ltd which was
based in Moscow PA. The company went out of business some years back.
The defensive handgun ammo made by PPS was one of the first to use a lightweight hand turned copper alloy hollow point bullet. It was the forerunner of today's DPX bullet made by Barnes and marketed by CorBon as DPX. Unlike the DPX loads, PPS used a round nylon tip to facilitate expansion and to ensure very reliable feeding.
The PPS ammo is very much like the classic Geco Action 1 BAT (Blitz Action Trauma) ammo sold to L.E. in the early 80's. It was a favorite of the CIA and other elite agencies.

PPS marketed its ammo in quantities of six cartridges per pack. It retailed for
about $15/pack in the 80's.

I have about 10 packs of the 9mm MAP (Max Auto Pistol) @ $12/pkg
about 4 packs of the .380 MPP (Max. Pocket Pistol) @ $12/pkg
and 6 packages of the harder to find .45 ACP MMC (Max Major Caliber
The .45 has 10 cartridges/package. @ $15/pkg

I may have some other variations in limited quantity including the hot .38 Special with a zinc bullet.

This is great ammo and is very collectible and shootable.

Pick up preferred in the San Diego area only.
I would reluctantly consider shipping only for the entire lot.

Man that's some charge to push a 67gr bullet to 1700fps. Any chance you have a picture of the 38 rounds w/zinc bullets (I'm just curious)?

Cool, thanks - amazing it's under SAMMI max spec yet still achieves those velocities.
