Anybody had any issues with Remington coreloct ammo? Decided to try some due to high price and low availability these days. Got 3 boxes from a gun shop that looked as if they had been on shelf a few years. Looking at the bullets some appeared to be loaded deeper in the casing than others on 2 out of 3 boxes. The third box had 4 with bad primers that would not fire. Accuracy was marginal at best with all 3 boxes. One round had noticably less recoil than the rest and that shot completely missed the target. Yesterday I bought 2 more boxes at walmart. All of these were identical in appearance and shot pretty good. No complaints on these except a couple primers looked different than the rest.

I had problems with complete pass through with no expansion, i do not shoot them anymore because of this.

I think I may have an explanation for the poor accuracy from the 3 boxes. I have a suspicion someone swithed boxes with some UMC ammo. Anybody know about Remingtons UMC ammo? I have no experience with it. The misfires I cant explain but I read a review at Cabelas.com where someone else had misfires from the corelocts.
