    Not surprised by this. Every ammo ammo fail I’ve had, save one, had Remington printed n the box. The exception was some Egyptian 9mm. Remington makes great guns but really lousy ammo.

    Not content to simply ruin the Marlin brand, Remington takes up blowing off shooters faces.

    Seems like there have been more than normal recalls this year. And, more than a few QA issues from various brands. I wonder if this a result to push as much product out before the end of the election fear cycle is over.

    I had a dud 30-06 round from Remington this spring.

    Took the box back to Wholesale Sports to tell the story and the salesman told me about an overcharged 7mm-08 round his nephew fired. Scared the crap out of the kid and they couldn’t get the bolt open afterwards. He was glad it was a new rifle.

    If there’s one manufacturing operation you wouldn’t let the MBAs ruin, you’d think it would be the one that can blow a customer’s face off.

    This is what happens when you become adopted by cerberus. Profit margins are the only thing that matters. Churn out faulty ammo, package 870’s that rust in the box, marlin rifles with tool marks still quite evident.

    Someone should recall the current bean counters before they ruin the brand and it takes 20 years to recover…and they literally kill people doing it.

    Now back to my time machine to buy some apple stock and then prevent justin bieber!

    I never had had a problem with any of the major US manufactures, aside from 22LR (nature of the beast with that). I have had problems with Russian Ammo (dirty and many failures) and German Surplus (blew up a guys FAL while I was next to him – no one hurt). I have been reloading now for about 8 years, so I don’t buy much now, but I use use Rem, Win, Fed, and CCI primers. They always work great.
