    Just picked up another 20- 3rd gen with Night sights to go with my 1st gen. Remington UMC's, Silvertips and some American eagle 180's are waiting to be fired. I noticed UMC's are MC(metal case) as opposed to FMJ (full metal jacket). Any real difference that would matter to my 20??

    Congrats on snagging another G20.

    No appreciable difference between a FMJ and a MC round that your G20 is going to detect. I believe the MC is merely a metal casing over lead.

    Anyway, the UMC 180gn 10mm is spec-ed @ 1150fps/528fpe, if that interests you. It's about on par with the velocity of the 175gn STHPs as suggested by chronograph data that's been posted on the 10Ring, though some claim the ST's velocity is a bit higher, about 1200fps.

    Just depends on whose working the chrono that day. ;)

    It is futile to resist 10mm, you will be assimilated.
