    I've been reading a lot of posts about Remington 22lr bulk ammo and most say it's CRAP ammo, too many misfires. I was just thinking about buying the UMC Remington 45acp bulk 250 packs and 9mm bulk 250 pack ammo; now I don't know, what is your opinion of the 45acp and 9mm bulk packs by Remington? Maybe best to go Federal Champion in the 9s. :dunno:

    I've never had any problems with centerfire bulk pack ammo. All the problems have been rim-fire, i.e. Remington 550-round boxes.

    I have found UMC bulk packs to be dirty and weak in 40 S&W. I have not used any in more than 3 years, had a case head seperate once.
    I do like to get the brass for reloading 40 cal, it gives me less problems than most other brass and last longer for me.
