I know what you mean. I quit buying there ammo in 1987. I had a brand new box of .303brit core-loks. Found a nice 10 pointer one snowy Nov. day and took the 60 yard shot... C-L-I-C-K! Darn round was a dud. The other 19 shot just fine. Turned my stomach and taste against them. I know that can happen to any manafacture of ammo but I have had too many other dud's on rimfire, shotshell etc.... Never have had a problem with winchester and federal and that's who I use for hunting ammo now.
I've always liked Remington's centerfire ammo - never a problem.
But, after big hassles with their rimfire ammo - "Goldbricks" and "Thunderduds" - they aren't worth it. Velocities are all over the scale, from the same box and batch. Groups look like shotgun patterns. I've sworn off their rimfire ammo.
Nah, we're griping about their rimfire ammo - the twentytwo crap.
Quality Control was missing in action when that stuff was made.
You can hear and feel the difference in each shot - some low-powered ones going low, some hot ones going high. A bunch won't even fire. Very poor quality.
