Note: Remington's bullet type designation "metal case" is essentially the equivalent of full metal jacket.
Video Transcript:Remington UMC stands for the Union Metallic Cartridge company which was founded back in 1867. And was actually the first company to make centerfire ammo. UMC was acquired by Remington in 1912 and now represents Remington's more economical line of ammo.
We tested the UMC 115 grain 9mm full metal case, which is Remington's term for full metal jacket. The bullet features a lead core with a copper jacket and exposed lead base, just like most full metal jacket ammo. This time around we used the UMC 100 pack, which comes in a nice compact box and two trays of 50 rounds each.
We tested the ammo in seven of our test guns and had no problems with reliability or function, just like expected. Accuracy was good too, which you can see from this 10 shot group. I think of Remington UMC as the old, reliable, standby range ammunition. So if you're looking for some practice ammo, and you're not sure what to get, Remington UMC is usually a good bet.

- Great stuff! Review by Mike
- Great deal. Now problems. Review by KJA
So far I have not had one issue with it. It has preformed perfectly in both my Smith& Wesson M&P9 and my father's SIG SAUER SP2022.
I would buy it again.
