The Union Metallic Cartridge Company gets its name from the Civil War, when it supplied ammunition to forces loyal to the Union government and the Lincoln administration. After the war, it reincorporated and became a major supplier of ammo to the private market. Major milestones in the history of UMC include the first production of American centerfire ammunition and the first production of cartridges in the venerable .22LR. The UMC and Remington brands have had shared ownership for many decades; currently, UMC focuses on producing large amounts of ammunition in popular cartridges such as .223 Remington.

To make sure it was not the Benelli MR1, I switched to Nosler Custom Competition 77gr. ammo to zero the rifle. I also used Winchester Ballistic Silvertip 55gr. and Lapua 69gr., w/o one misfire from any of these. I did a slow aim-fire and a rapid fire w/o a glitch.
Maybe I got a bad lot of the Remington, and/or the powder load wasn't the same for each round? I purchased 200 rds.of this Remington ammo for my semi-auto rifles, mainly because of the affordability, but after the FTE experiences, I'll only use the Remington ammo from a bolt action rifle.
