Default Issues w Remington ammo (40 SW)

I have been having extraction failures with this ammo recently. From a couple different boxes purchased months apart in 2 different towns!

My sidearm is a Ruger SR40, which generally is not picky about ammo

Anyone else has issues with this stuff?

Yup, my Glock 19 absolutely hates it in 9mm. Remington ammo is just about the only thing I avoid purposely unless we are talking core-lokt or something like that for my bolt guns.

I've found Federal Champion to perform better and in many cases Tula performs as well or better at half the cost.
Just passing through...

Never had an issue with Remington in my SR9. Shot hundreds of rounds of it and have about 600 rounds on hand now. Hope my luck continues!

Haven't had any problems with Remington ammo, but my Ruger hates Tula ammo.

I have a SR40c and it has never given a problem with any brand of ammo. Not one of my favorite handguns, but it has always went bang when i pulled the trigger.
