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:If you shoot a lot of 45, you might want to take a look at this Remington Target ammo. It's part of the UMC line, which stands for Ultra Mega Case. Not really. It actually gets its name from the old Union Metallic Cartridge Company that merged with Remington back in the early 1900s. Remington kept the UMC name for some of their ammo. And now they use it to refer to their lower cost range and training brand.
This is the Target version of the UMC ammo, which I'll explain in just a minute. You can get it in the smaller 50 round boxes. But it's also available in these huge 250 round megapacks.
The UMC line has been around for a long time. And it's known for being pretty dependable range ammo. Recently, Remington added a nickel plating option to the UMC brass, which they call a UMC Target. These are the kind of shiny silver cases you normally only see on premium defense ammo. It helps to guard against corrosion and will also aid in smoother feeding and extraction.
It's reloadable, just like normal brass, and features a non-corrosive primer. The 230 grain bullet has a traditional lead core copper full metal jacket, which Remington calls a metal case.
The 250 round megapack comes with a stack of five 50 round trays and a cardboard tab that lets you pull them all out at once without making a mess. We had plenty of ammo to work with in this pack. So we ran through several mags in all six of our 45 caliber test guns.
We didn't have a single feeding failure or any other malfunctions. Like most UMC ammo, the recoil was moderate and typical for a practice load. To check out how accurate this ammo is, we set up our Springfield XDM on some sandbags at 15 yards. It was a really windy day, but we were still able to get a nice 10 shot group right in the center. We had one low flyer. But all the other shots were hitting right at the point of aim.
This ammo was pretty accurate for range ammo. But I should probably mention that it's not really any more accurate than the standard UMC load. For that, you'd have to go to a premium match load or something similar.
The new UMC Target brand continues the long Remington tradition of dependable range and training ammo at a reasonable price. For most applications, the original UMC brand should get the job done. But if you want the extra edge and reliability, or you plan to store your ammo for a long time, the corrosion resistant nickel plating of the UMC Target ammo adds a lot of value.
