.300 blk ammo new and used?

Recommended Posts

Picked up some 230gn remington umc subs at the lgs 20$ per 20 ehh its on the shelf! Not familiar with their pratice or products but theese look to be remaned? Pulled pills and dented brass... Nothing on the box/packaging? Shoot it with no worries or send it back?

Thanks for your thoughts gents.

Looks like a defect to me. I've shot a metric schit,ton of remanufactured ammo and never seen that issue on the bullet before........

  What its say on the Base of the case ?

  Those Bullets look like they have been Swaged to make the pointy end . I have some Nosler 155 gr. Match bullets that show signs of it , but nothing like that .

  Also looks like a Lee Factory Crimp on them , but I have seen MilSpec with the same crimp markings.

They are hollow point.

Took a box to the range and asked the RO he said they will shoot but will be un balanced and defitnetly a risk of baffle strike suppresed! Fook me! Lgs is no returns on ammo.... Well i now have a ton of 300 blk brass to relode as soon as i waste the time and money to shoot it ?

  Well, worse case , you have good brass to reload , as you said . Have you tried any of this fodder , how unstable can the Bullet get after it leaves the Barrel & passes through the Suppressor ? Your Suppressor is, how long ?  I don't buy that it will be that unstable , Call or Email Remington & have the Box of Ammo Handy for any details they ( Remington ) may require . They should say if its OK the Shoot it through a Suppressor or not .

Hell. Send it over here. I'll take care of shooting it for you. And I'll even send you the brass back my man. Cause that's just the kinda guy I am. laughing

I have to recall from memory but I let the lgs contact remmington and had to follow up myself with the lgs .. by memory,  its fine shoot it. i did not use it in the can and its been long since shot up in a 16" barrel with no qualms.. id say use this ammo with discretion of the same lot and bullet deformations.. thats all the info i have? sorry to be late on my follow up..🙃 I hope its long gone from the lgs for others.
