Called the “Leadless”, this is a nice target round at a decent price point that offers many shooter enhancement benefits for the .45 shooters out there. It is meant to come in line with the changes for lead exposure that have come online in the past few years in many areas. It prevents the hot gases from coming in contact with the lead core of a projectile (this projectile is actually lead free also), and the lead-free primer keeps extra airborne lead out of the shooting environment. The clean shooting benefits of this round are most obvious when shooting in an indoor range as the cloudy smoke-filled area you’d normally be shooting in, is suddenly much more enjoyable and the accuracy, reliability and performance are still good.
Remington has reconstituted the UMC brand as a value line as it has in the past many times throughout its storied history. That history, going back to 1912 has been beneficial for the Remington brand and the shooters who rely on it for value priced ammunition through the UMC line. The name is synonymous with high quality and reliability at reasonable price points.
This is a “hardball” round with a flat nose, essentially a 230 grain projectile with a stout powder charge.
