Default Walmart remington UMC .45 ammo?

Anyone have experience with it? At a store near me its 500 rounds for $100, which is less than. Half of junk ammo at a gun store around here. But is it any good or garbage? Is it even brass cased? (note that i doubt it is)

Is that the yellow box with black lettering or the green & white boxes?

I have used the yellow in my XD45 with no trouble and have used the green & white in my 9mm and in my .38 with no problems. It was all brass-cased stuff, though. The yellow i had came in a 250 pack, while the green & white boxes were 50 or 100 round packages.

I have used them.. the 9mm though. They are great and brass casings. Much better than Tulammo for sure.

IT is 250 rounds, not 500 in those boxes FYI. I've used it before. Shoots fine.

I'd rather stay with the infallable 45 ACP 230 gr FMJ I have been using for years. I get a box of 50 rds for $16.99, 250 rounds for $85, 500 for $169.99, and 1000 rds for $338.

If it's only 250 rounds for $100, not a good deal. We get the Remington UMC FMJ here for less than $19 & 100 round UMC JHPs for about $39.
