    Hello Mas,

    Any history of successful use of the Remington UMC L9mm1 115gr standard pressure load? It is so darn cheap I could afford to stack it deep and practice with it.

    Thanks

    If it's the same as the old, original Express line 115 grain JHP, expansion was good but not great. Feeds wonderfully, though. Certainly better than ball, but not really in the same league with today's high performance JHPs, such as Remington's own 124 grain +P Golden Saber.
    best,
    mas

    Thanks Mas.

    I have some more modern stuff on hand but it will be a decent round to stock up against price hikes, legislation, etc.
