    This is a small sample of what I pulled out of a brick of Remington .22 Has anyone else had this experience? When I called them they said I'd "have to send it up to the plant" they said to just mail it! They claimed they will replace it! It will cost more to mail it than it cost in the first place, not to mention the fact that it would be against the law. Why would I want more of this remingcrap? I know better than to buy it in the first place, as only about half of it would even fire, but I thought after many years I'd give them another shot. NEVER AGAIN!!!

    I dont have any 22's and never bought any ammo, but i've heard that a few rounds out of a brick of 22's might not be great. But that is just ridiculous

    Only at the cost of me breaking federal laws! I hope you were being sarcastic.

    i'd want to keep the insane looking rounds, maybe build a wall-box for them with a nice black front. get a copy of the remington logo and make it the backdrop to the box

    First of all, that's completely bizarre. Most ammo companies (including Remington) are excellent when it comes to compensating customers for bad ammo - I'm sure this will be no different.

    Secondly, it's not illegal to mail the ammo back to them. Simply close the rest of the brick up, package it, and ship it out. You'll have to label it properly, but you will absolutely be able to ship it back to them.

    And it will not cost more than the brick cost to ship it back to them. Even if it did, it's pretty standard for ammo manufacturers to replace the defective ammo as well as sending coupons.

    So how about you follow their advice, and let them fix the problem before bad-mouthing them?

    According to my local post office, it is illegal for me to mail ammunition or any other form of explosives.

    Wow! I wonder how much more of that junk is out there.

    Any chance you could give us the batch code on that ammo?

    On the bottom of the box:
    PKG. 60818-5
    R240/1622AB
    G58420590

    Not sure which is the batch code, but look out for it!

    Of all the 22 ammo that I have bought, Remingtons are by far the worst. Almost nothing will feed right with them, 1 out of 3 misfires, and some guns won't even chamber the little POS's. It's like they're the wrong size. Do a search on the internet and you'll see you are not alone.

    Why are you complaining? Those deformed cartridges are fascinating! The entertainment value alone is worth the price. Plus you have a whole pile of modern art to view without having to leave home and without those pesky museum entrance fees.

    Sorry. Just looking for the silver lining :)

    If its illegal to ship ammo then wideners should have hundreds of life sentences. Try UPS. They ship it.

    Honestly, I would check your gun. There is a feeding problem. I have had something like that happen maybe two times in thousands of rounds of Remington ammo and it is always with a semi-auto 22 rilfe. My suggestion is you clean your gun and shoot some more.

    You can ship ammo. No laws broken as long as it is properly labeled.

    I'm confused. :confused:

    Did those rounds come out of the box like that or did your gun do that to them? I agree that Remington is trash but I've never seen anything remotely similar to that.

    Got a Marlin Glenfield 60, Ruger Mk.II, Bersa 22, GSG-5, AR-7, and a Ciener AR-15 kit that all only choke on Remingtons. In fact the Ciener will not even chamber them. Every other brand runs fine, and I have tried a lot. The only 22 that feeds them right is a Remington model 5 bolt action but even with it I get a lot of misfires. Havn't tried them in the Henry Golden Boy because I don't want them anywhere near it. Even when they feed right misfire after misfire. Could be a bad batch I don't know.

    NO, THIS IS HOW THEY CAME OUT OF THE BOX.

    Sorry, I'm just a little ticked about this. I should rename this thread to read: Remington rimfire SUX

    I have never had a problem with their centerfire cartridges.

    Oh My God, I've heard every thing now!

    You've never ever broken the yoke of an egg when you've flipped'em over easy? You've never ever burnt or under 'cooked' your toast? You've never ever had a traffic ticket? You've never ever run out of gas or come close to it?

    You must be friggin PERFECT!

    You bought bulk ammo in a box and you're complaining about something that probably shouldn't have happened but did. It was most likely an assembly line issue going into the containers. Could this have been a damaged box? You're out what, three bux worth of ammo?

    C'mon.

    This can happen to any manufacturing/packaging process for any company. If this was a box of cookies, then the return wouldn't be so difficult.

    I am sorry that you're displeased with your purchase. I suggest that you take them back to the store where you bought them. Maybe Wally World will give you your money back or credit for another brand of ammo they stock.

    They were actually in the box deformed like that? How did they even fit? Just thought of it? Bulk Pack, right? Well, I seldom buy bulk packs and there clearly was something going on with one of the machines and the inspectors totally missed it. I would send them pictures and see if empty boxes would be sufficient for their needs. They really just need to know the lot number more than anythng to trace back the problem. Remington should feel embarrassed at a minimum that something like this actually passed the inspectors. Somebody needs a good talking to.

    You see my drift, it is a personel problem rather than a manufacturing problem. Stuff happens, but they should never have made it out of the factory. Remington should make good on this. I have never bought any of their bulk packs or loosely boxed ammo.

    Did these come from a Walmart bulk pack marked golden bullet?

    No, half the box is like this. It is not a matter of "perfection", but a matter of quality control. As I said, Remcrap rimfire has always been garbage IMO. Usually 1/3 misfires or FTF. This is ridiculous, and yet one more example of why the rest of the manufacturing world is kicking our azz(the USA).
