LGS has been getting some Remington ammo in, albeit sporadically, and not much at one time. Doesn't last long on the shelves.

Let us hope that the 30-06, 150g line is running! Call me selfish.

It's and old Mauser Sporter. It likes 150g Core-Lokt

Let's hope the brass is worth a shit.

Can’t be efficient to load the cardboard boxes of shotgun shells by hand.

Other than some Core-Lokt, is there really any Remington ammo that still needs to be made under the Remington name?

Gotta justify $11 a box for Gun Clubs.

Hopefully, we will start to see Remington percussion caps again. I've not seen any for sale for many months, now.

So what's your answer? Their 22RF ammo sucks. Federal's HST, Hydrashok and Gold Dot ammo are all better selling than Golden Sabre. FMJ can have any brand name on it. American Eagle sells better than UMC. Their "premium" rifle bullets don't sell better than Federal Premium loaded with Nosler, Sierra and other brand bullets. Corelokt is their only brand that sells well, as it's still the most popular standard hunting bullet.

For now, I hope they are producing .22lr, 5.56, 9mm, and .308 FMJ ammo at full capacity until we break the "shortage", then they can diversify their production lines.

I hope they keep producing it too, I just don't know why the brass cases and boxes wouldn't be marked Federal.

I just hope they improve the .22 rimfire ammo as it has SUCKED for decades. A good start would be to put priming compound in all the cases, all the way around the rim.

Who makes Remington primers?

Could this be a step forward in the primer shortage?

Just called him. They are working on popular rifle ammo, then rimfire and last but not least shotgun shells.
