Default Remington. 380 UMC 95 grain range ammo

Has anybody used Remington 380 UMC 95 grain range ammo?
I have a .380 Shield EZ that loves Magtech .95 grain range ammo and it works great but in my area it's getting hard to find now. So I can get 250 rounds for about $68. Before I get ammo that my .380 Shield EZ may not like I'd thought I'd ask.

Iíve used it in my Bodyguard 380s and it works fine - in fact, better than the imported brands. Thatís a pretty good price, too, it seems. I think youíll be happy with it, but I admit I donít shoot a lot of .380 ammunition.

I brought a mega pack of the Remington. 380 95 grain FMJ UMC ammo for $68.at Wal Mart took it to the range and it fired flawlessly. I liked it so much I brought another mega pack of 250 rounds.

I've had pretty good luck with it in my Bersa Thunder 380CC. That gun was very ammo finicky early on, but after a thousand or more rounds through it, it's pretty good.

In my case, it was more about the shape of the bullet than anything else. At least I think so.

I've never seen any full metal jacket stuff that was accurate, but it's always worth trying.

It's the only FMJ I use in my .380s including Bodyguard and PPK. The PPK is real hard to please on FMJ. WW just won't work in either very well. I used Hydrashoks for H/P in both with zero problems.

Works well for me. The only ones I've had issues with are Winchester and S&B. Everything else has worked well in all my .380s.

+1 I’ve always had luck with Rem-UMC range stuff in my Glock 42.

never any problems in my Keltech P3AT. 250 rounds would cover many trips to the range
. Although completely reliable and reasonably accurate it is not much fun to shoot
