I usually avoid Remington ammo but found a few boxes of the green box 45 ball ammo. Is their Ammo any good? Usually shoot Speer lawman but can't find any.

Never had a problem with them, other than being a little dirty. As Robbins said, if you need some, I wouldn't be too picky right now.

$30 for a box of 50 is quite high however

I have found nothing wrong with Remington UMC for cheap plinking/practice ammo. It is all I buy because I can get it fairly cheap.

While somewhat dirty, they are fine for range use.

what is green box to you? the green/white UMC or the green/yellow Express? I shoot both and the Express is my carry ammo.

In this market you had better buy it before someone else grabs it up.

during the panic of 08 I stupped to my all time low and paid $26.00 for WWB .380acp

back in the spring of 2012 I bought 8 boxes of Herter's select for $12.00 (a box shipped) and latter I paid $22.00 (a box shipped) for a case of Remington Express both .380acp FMJ, it was only after I hit my low that I got serious about buying ammo on sale.

I wouldn't pay that for UMC but then I don't have to either, be smart and learn.

In my experience it is somewhat dirty.

Remington UMC is dirty junk ammo. I don't even buy it on sale, and now that its hard to get, I don't have to.

At that price, no. But, you may not get another chance for awhile. If you've no ammo, buy it. If you're just using it for range use, I wouldn't bother. It's gunky, inconsistent, and I've had it jam several "injammable" firearms.:barf:

UMC? yeah it's junk. It's right up there for me with Golden Bullets in terms of its crappiness.

That said, in today's environment, I would still buy it and shoot it at the range. Just don't expect anything special.

I just picked up a 250 "bulk" pack for $105 at a Mills Fleet Farm....$30 for 50 rounds seems steep, it's not great ammo

Works just fine for me in .40 and 9mm. Pick some up while you can, dirty ammo is better than no ammo
