Alchemist Ammo Review
To be clear, Clark Armory did not sponsor this review, nor do we have a relationship with the reviewer. Therefore, we cannot vouch for the results but the reviewer did shoot a large number of both the Z-Clean and C3 Frangible Ammo and seems to have very good knowledge of firearms (he appears to be in law enforcement) and a history of ammunition testing.
The reviewer tests many calibers of both the Z-Clean and C3 Frangible, including but not limited to: .380 Auto, 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .357 Sig for pistols as well as a variety of rifle calibers (he specifically discusses the .223 in the review).
Below is a brief summary of what he found (link to original article below).
Alchemist Z-Clean Ammo Review Results:
- At least as accurate, if not more, than HST's and Gold Dots.
- Leaves much less residue in the weapon than tradition ammo (makes for easier weapon cleaning).
- Feeds at least as well, if not better, that traditional ammo in all tested firearms.
- Zero failures to fire.
- No residue build up in barrel observed.
- Conclusion: a great alternative to plinking or NATO ammo (for military use).
Alchemist C3 Frangible Ammo Review Results:
- Less felt recoil.
- Very accurate, especially in .223 Remington.
- Able to shoot within a few feet of steel with no ricochet.
- Conclusion: both rounds are at least as good as conventional option.
