Details

New in 2011 is Remington's latest introduction featuring Nickel plated UMC pistol ammunition. Nickel Plated casings are typically only found in high-end defense ammunition as it results in smoother feeding and cycling of a weapon. Now, nickel-plated cases are economically available from Remington for range use. This line of ammo also features Kleanbore® primers resulting in a clean reliable burn time after time.

Manufactured by the legendary Remington Arms Company, this product is brand new, nickel-plated brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable. It is a staple range and target practice ammunition used by many law enforcement agencies and avid shooters.

In 1816 Eliphalet Remington produced his own rifle in his smithing shop which was superior to commercially available rifles of the day. Ever since then, Remington has been leading the charge in technological innovation bringing superior products to the market.

Note: Remington's bullet type designation "metal case" is essentially the equivalent of full metal jacket.

Video Transcript:

UMC started out as the Union Metallic Cartridge Company back in the 1860s. They were responsible for some of the most important innovations in ammo technology, like the original center fire cartridge. UMC merged with Remington in 1912, and now Remington uses the UMC brand to represent their line of inexpensive target and practice ammo. The ammo we tried out for this review was some .38 Special, that's part of the UMC target line.

UMC target ammo is more or less the same as the traditional UMC ammo except that it features a nickel plated brass case. Nickel plating is something you normally only see in premium self-defense and hunting loads. And is designed to help cartridges feed better and extract a little better from the chambers. And also add some protection against corrosion.

The nickel plated brass cases used in this ammo feature a non-corrosive primer and are paired with a 158 grain lead core full metal jacket bullet. Remington calls this a metal case bullet, but it's the same as a traditional lead core copper jacketed bullet, that you can find in many other brands of ammo.

We ran this ammo through six different test guns and it worked great with all of them. We didn't have any ignition problems and, just as advertised, extraction was smooth even in our dirtiest revolver. Recoil is mild and works just as well in the lever action as it does in a small lightweight snub nose revolver.

Accuracy was pretty good, too. Which we tested from the bench rest at 15 yards using a 4 inch barreled Smith & Wesson 686. Remington UMC ammo is a favorite at shooting ranges all over the country. And the new target line adds the improvement of more dependable extraction. It's great load for lots of different range applications. And even though, it's not match accurate, it would make a great load for plinking, self-defense training, and action shooting sports.
