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 is Remington's line of low cost range ammo. The name comes from the old Union Metallic Cartridge Company, which was founded back in the 1860s, and then merged with Remington back in 1912.

Usually you'll see UMC sold in these plain green and white boxes, or sometimes they're in these yellow bulk packs. But today we want to talk about something new, and that's the Remington UMC Target.

This ammo is essentially identical to the standard UMC, except that it uses nickel plated brass cases instead of the standard brass. These are the same kind of cases you would normally find in high-end self-defense ammo. The nickel plating is intended to help the cartridges feed better for enhanced reliability.

We shot a couple of boxes of UMC Target in a .40 Smith & Wesson. . This batch has the 180 grain bullet, but the 165 grain is also available. The bullet is a lead core with a copper full metal jacket.

Like I was saying before, the case is nickel plated brass, and that's reloadable like any normal brass case. Just like the standard UMC, the recoil for UMC Target is moderate and accuracy is pretty good, which you can see from our 10 shot group, shot from the bench with a SIG P226.

So how about reliability? Is it more reliable than standard range ammo? Well, we didn't shoot boxes and boxes for a proper torture test or anything like that, but the ammo we had seemed to run really well in most of our test guns.

We did have one failure to feed in a Ruger SR40, but that was with a magazine we've been having trouble with anyway. So if you've got some mechanical issues, the UMC Target isn't going to work any kind of magic for you. But in a gun that's working properly, UMC Target is probably a good bet for reliable function and feeding.

If you're doing any kind of handgun competition, or just want a little extra assurance in terms of reliability, then you might want to try out Remington UMC Target in .40 Smith & Wesson.

Great Ammo!!! Review by Merc
Put 500 rounds of this stuff through my FNX 40 and it performed flawlessly! No feed issues, no misfires, and consistently tight groups. As always the service from LuckyGunner was great, shipping was super fast and you just can't beat their prices. When these rounds are in stock, don't think, buy them! (Posted on 11/6/12)
good buy Review by charnley
I bought this after having major feed issues with S&B ammo and I experienced no issues with this ammo. It fired reliably and consistently. (Posted on 9/28/12)
Super Clean Review by stephanie_peterson
This is the cleanest ammo I have used, as of yet. And accurate, as I would expect from Remington. I cannot testify at this time as to the benefit of the nickel plating to account for the extra money, but so far so good! (Posted on 7/23/11)
