finally found ammo that my SIG doesn't like
Actually it's not that my SIG doesn't like it. It eats everthing I've put through it. BUT, I shot Remington UMC 230 gr. today and the accuracy SUCKED! My targets today from 7 yards looked like I was shooting 25 yards. Never again:mad: I'll stick to Magtech for target ammo.

What caliber were you using? I use Remington UMC 9mm in my X5 Competition when plinking and it seems to shoot fine. Possible you got a bad batch or have you tried it on other occasions? I havent tried Magtech yet.

PS>..I just ordered a new Sig 357 P239 Two Tone today...:D:D:D

Interesting. I don't think I've put any UMC through my P220 yet, but I do have a 250 round box of 230gr FMJ. My SIG also eats everything I put through far anyway. Been using some PMC, PMC Bronze, Magtech, PMP, Independence, etc.....

It was 230 gr. FMJ. Don't get the wrong idea, my GSR ate up 200 rounds of the UMC without a hitch, EXCEPT the accuracy was in the toilet! As soon as I went back to Magtech 230gr. FMJ, accuracy was back to where it usually is. Go figure.
