My Remington 597 didn't cycle very well until I got a 3 generation clip from Remington (free). Now it doesn't miss a beat.
My 1100 Synthetic in 12 gauge has never had an issue cycling, unless I have a shell holder in it while shooting trap. Then it holds the shell, like it's supposed to..
Remington ammo in bulk boxes isn't worth much in my opinion. It jams my Marlin model 60 and about one out of every 25 or so is a dud in all my .22s. Stay away, there are plenty of other inexpensive choices.
My Remington 597 wouldn't cycle it's own Remington ammo...I switched to Federal and all is good.
In the past, I've lost a deer to a remington fail to feed. I was using a Woodsmaster chambered in .308, got out of the truck, saw a deer, went to load a corelokt shell and the bolt moved about .25 inches. The deer looked for about 5 seconds and ran in the woods.
The gun was dirty, but, before cleaning I tried federal ammo and it fed fine...I'm buying federal ammo now
That copper on .22lr,s is not a jacket.It is a copper buffer to replace a heavy wax buffer.I personally have found that the wax buffer and oil I added were the main contributors to mal-function,s in .22 llr autoloaders.My system is field strip,plug chamber,use eye protection,go outdoors,use toothpic,s and degreaser,usually butches bore shine,but any will work,wash out and remove buildup,oil action and housing and wipe all the oil out I can get and reassemble.I too dont like Rem.lr ammo but have always had faith in their centerfire and shotgun ammo.Thats the way it works for me.I cant emagine a 760 or 7600 that is even remotely maintained jamming on factory ammo. samuel.
Remington .22LR seems far less consistent than other US brands. My Browning Buckmark chokes on it. I save it for the bolt rifles if I get some.
A few Winchester loads have a very blunt squared-off bullet design that some semiautos don't like too.
I find CCI to be the best US-made .22LR ammo overall.
I love remington ammo in my Remington 1100. Never fails to feed, nice pattern etc. I currently have 1,050 rounds of remington .22 value pack stuff, and my ruger 10/22, ruger MK1, Hi-Standard, H&R Rough Rider, and Remington Fieldmaster 572 all feed it. (tho it's not the most accurate. Federal is.)
