Remington ammunition is a legendary brand with many generations of shooters, hunters, law enforcement, and military personnel relying on their ammunition to get the job done. Remington’s UMC line of ammo is designed to offer reasonably priced ammunition that you can count on to consistently perform well.
Premium ammo is more expensive than traditional hollowpoint ammunition, sometimes a lot more. Many of the high-end rounds have special construction techniques and all of them have a lot of engineering time behind their development.
For anyone working within a budget, the extra cost of these ammunition lines simply may not be affordable. At more than $1/round in many cases, it becomes expensive to test your preferred handgun with the ammo to make sure it will cycle reliably and provide reasonable accuracy.
So the question is “Will cheap ammunition work for self-defense?” In at least one case, I say: “Yes.
The UMC line is Remington’s pedestrian line of ammunition. There isn’t anything hyped in this ammo series: just quality handgun and rifle ammo at reasonable prices.
remington 9mm ammo – 1000 rounds
The Remington UMC L9MM1B ammunition is a 115-grain jacket hollowpoint load packaged in 100-round boxes. I’ve found these at the gun counter in Walmart for less than $30 before the recent ammo shortage. These rounds are packaged in relatively non-flashy green and white boxes.
Even though I prefer to carry a premium self defense ammo in my firearms, I can’t deny that having a small stockpile of good, but inexpensive, hollowpoints makes sense for my needs. On more than one occasion, I have handed a box of this stuff to a friend or family member when they purchased a gun, but didn’t buy any hollowpoints to feed it.
This particular load uses a standard lead core hollowpoint with a copper jacket. A 115-grain bullet is on the light end of the most popular bullet weights in 9mm, which means it tends to have faster muzzle velocities than other loads.
Remington publishes the muzzle velocity as 1145 fps from a 4-inch barrel. This is fast enough to ensure reliable expansion in most situations, and produce about 335 ft-lbs of energy. From the specs, this appears to be a decent self-defense load that is operating at normal (not +P) pressures.
