The Union Metallic Cartridge Company, or UMC, was founded in 1867, and was acquired by Remington 1912. UMC's current production plant is in Lonoke, Arkansas, and was built in 1970 when DuPont owned Remington. The Remington UMC ammo I test was their 55 grain metal case load. Metal case is another way of saying full metal jacket. This ammo features a copper jacket and a lead core which will not attract a magnet and is acceptable at any range that allows centerfire rifles.
It is loaded with a brass case and a non-corrosive boxer primer. The case is reloadable, and Remington makes great brass for reloading.
This ammo functioned perfectly in all of the test rifles. Recoil was manageable, which came in handy for rapid fire shooting. I also chronographed it in several different rifles, and it was loaded to proper velocities for a 55 grain 223 Remington. At 50 yards from the bench, accuracy was quite good as you can see from this ten shot group.
This Remington UMC ammo is a good example of how quality American manufacturing still exists. It's a great choice for any range or training use.

good company, one case problem
Lucky Gunner is great for service and price. No complaints there. On the whole, the Remington 223 was good, but I did have one neck where the brass tore when the bolt cammed closed on it. seems to have a very heavy crimp. I'll know how delicate it is when I size it all for reloads.
Great prices and availability when other companies were out of stock. Ordering was easy and delivery was super fast. Ammo arrived well packaged. My only concern is that the shipment was marked as ammo on the outside of the package. I would prefer more discreet packaging especially when it's left at my doorstep.
I have ordered more ammo several times after my initial purchase and am very happy with the quality of the products, ease of purchase and prompt delivery. I will definitely order more in the future now that I trust the site. Great job Luckygunner! Keep up the good job and don't screw up like some of those other sites that started out good and changed for he worse.
A pleasure doing business with
It was such a pleasure doing business with Lucky Gunner. I placed my first order online, and in a few short days, my .223 order was hand delivered to my front door. I plan on placing another very soon. I have my eye on low recoil 12 gauge 00 buckshot. 250 shells to be exact. Lucky Gunner is my new shopping playground.
Top notch service and performance
The shipment arrived much faster than most internet sites. The contents were packaged well without any signs or dirty or corroded cartridges. I fired 60 rounds from this shipment and found them to be very consistent and accurate. So far, I have fired close to 300 rounds of this same ammo without any jamming or misfires. I gladly recommend the product and Lucky Gunner to anyone.
Somewhat dissapointed in performance.
I am putting these rounds through 1/7 twist 16" barrel and can't achieve the accuracy I had hoped for.
I hope I am not being premature in judging the round with only 50 rds fired. I'll give iy another try.
Fast delivery and great price
I love remington ammo and lucky gunner always has what I want in stock. I used to buy alot of ammo at gun shows, but Lucky Gunner has been beating gun show prices consistantly. 223, as you know, is hard to find, but my experience is that Lucky Gunner, not only has it in stock, the more you buy, the better the price.
Great Prices on Superb Products
Ordering was fast and easy, the price was excellent, and the ammunition feeds and functions through my Ruger Mini-14 with accuracy and reliability. Once again a completely satisfying experience with LuckyGunner!
Don't waste time looking for a better supply or better prices just log onto Lucky Gunner and order it.
As usual Lucky Gunner was the place to go. Outstanding and reliable as you always are.
Honest and fair, maybe you could run for president.
Those qualities would be a nice change of pace.
Quality ammo - quick delivery
I ordered a case to test. It was delivered within 3 days after ordering. Sighted in my new 3x9 scope using a 20 round box of Remington ammo. Group was about 2 inches at 120 yds. The ammo worked quite well in my rifle. I have ordered a few thousand additional rounds for practice this summer.
