URBAN LEGEND UMC 300 Blkout

Recommended Posts

So a couple of weeks ago im looking around for ammo for my 300's and my buddies 300's...ive already tested about 4 different kinds but I wanted one that I could pile up and not drain the charge card....so I run across this urban legend on you tube and a couple of other places that the lowly umc 120 Remington is really Barnes components and loaded by umc or  loaded by Barnes? hell I forgot already...lol  I always turn my nose up at umc but what the heck ill try some price was right ..so I thought...so two days ago we went to the range with nothing but 6 blackouts...4 new ones for my buddy that we built and 2 fairly new ones for me.....well crap the umc didnt have barnes headstamp like the video that was 4 years old:laffs:   So we start with his new ones and he brought all this Barnes hog suk hammer jackoffpig125 whizbang crap type ammo......and ive got ppu fiocchi Barnes and the urban legend UMC

Well fuk me......the UMC at 100 would clover leaf every fukkin rifle. you could cover groups with a dime.....im talkin bout after the scopes were set...we be talkin bulls eyes using 1x4 1x6 vortex's and one 6x24 vortex and that primary arms 1xwhatever.... as much as we tried to prove that the 25 dollar hogg fukkinhammer was the best...it wasnt even close...none of the ammos we brought were as good as this 14.50 box of UMC from Acadamy  shhhhh really Barnes...dont tell:banana:   look up that you tube video....

so today my search was to prep up some ..I cant believe im saying this UMC ammo  ......after much google fu I got it coming in at 12.41 a box shipped no tax....  to get the extra dollar off I joined the prime ammo club....cheaper than advertised price and free shipping on one box or 100..... any kind of ammo or supplies   from targetsports usa        Wash

I have had good results with both supersonic and subsonic UMC, never knew there were possible issues with damaging the can. SIG ammo has given some top notch accuracy from both my fathers pistol and mine, just a little pricy though.

i prefer the sig ammo? but going more twards the sb ammo you suggest. the only iffy on the umc is with the hollow points. there are bullet serations that is questionable in the can if they expand before leaving the can, the non hollow points should be gtg.. there just redicilious $ where i live.. if i do the math they prolly compair to shipping but at every box of 20 .. the online ammo is just the way to go for free shipping.

Get the umc solid  but  I can't vouch for the accuracy like I can with the otm umc

I'll bet the fmj would work  new urban legend started right here     Wash

I miss @Jgun being here. He was loading some wizz-bang 300’s. I think he had a 125gr flat bottom, getting near 2,600fps. There is a thread around here somewhere

  Ya , he was taking them to the limit to qualify them for Major caliber class in three gun matches . He didn't care if he could reuse his brass .:laffs:

They put one hell of a primer pocket crimp on that stuff - that's gonna be hell to cut out.  I don't even think the RCBS Swager 2 tool would take that whole thing out, unless it was a couple passes with the ram.

Yikes that looks like crap...today while digging further into the umc Barnes load I read a post about a crap Remington load if it sez 300 aac rm  headstamp stay far away from it...thats what you have......looky what I found about this here ammo but what I don't see is the red primer sealant on this?  Anyhow going to the range with it Friday or Saturday after the last 300 blackout builds for my buddy...crap...I forgot how many ive built with him this last month.......this legend ammo prolly wont shoot as good as the Academy  umc :laffs:..........  this is pretty stuff in the pic of me holding 2 hollow points the one closest to my finger tips is the Barnes....see the better bullet nose?   Wash
