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 Target is a new product from Remington's UMC brand of low-cost range ammo. UMC stands for the Union Metallic Cartridge Company and was founded back in 1867. They were responsible for some of the biggest ammo innovations ever, like the centerfire cartridge and the 22 rimfire round. UMC merged with Remington back in 1912 and now Remington uses the UMC banner to brand some of the most popular rifle and pistol practice ammo.

The new UMC Target line is essentially the same as the regular UMC ammo except that it features a nickel-plated brass case. This is the kind of nickel plating you normally would only find in expensive hollow point defensive ammo and is intended to aid in reliable feeding.

The UMC Target that we tested for this review is the 165 grain 40 Smith & Wesson. The re-loadable nickel plated brass case features a non-corrosive primer and houses a lead core full metal jacket bullet which Remington labels as a metal case or MC.

We tested accuracy with a 10 shot group from the bench at 15 yards using a SIG P226. Results were very consistent with a nice group about an inch above our point of aim. We've never had any serious reliability issues with the normal Remington UMC and the nickel plating on the UMC Target didn't let us down either. We had no reliability or feeding problems in any of our six test guns. It's a great choice for every day range use and would also be good for any kind of timed competition where reliability is essential.

This is the second time I've bought 1000 rounds of these and it is far from the last. I've had zero problems, they are clean and as accurate as any FMJ rounds for me yet. Oh yeah...it's at a very good price through Lucky. (Posted on 9/29/11)
