But I would make sure they knew what was up.
Agreed. When you consider the vast quantities of ammo going through production, sh!t happens just like this. Don't mean a damn thing about their overall quality.
Call them up, tell them about it, give them the lot number. These companies rely on US, the CONSUMERS to help them put out a better product. Blowing them off and dogging their product as a whole, because of one bad round, just ain't fair.

Not to say they are a bad company, but the core lokt isn't their best line.

And from what I have been seeing on this and other forums it is happening with the other manufacture's as well.

Wouldn't know, I don't shoot remington or Corelokt. I only shoot handgun, which means for me, WWB, because it's the cheapest that's regularly on the shelf at my LGS (I'll get anything cheaper, my gun eats it all). I rarely even see remington handgun ammo in my area.

I don't hunt either. Nothing against it, and I want to, it's just that I had to sell my rifles to help see me through a divorce and job loss. I intend to rectify that situation as soon as possible, but it's looking like I'll be missing out on this year's season too.

Remington ammo is not that popular In my area either except for rifle ammo. I can't complain Though I can go into a academy about 5 days a week and get anything from .22 lr to 10mm it's all there.
