When you hit the range or head out to your favorite outdoor shooting spot, remember to enjoy yourself. Even when your goal is 100% focused on honing your marksmanship, have a good time, because the minute it stops being fun and becomes nothing but work, you’re going to stop wanting to go. One of the best ways to keep things interesting is to mix up the shooting drills and tactical skills you’re working on. Although it’s true you need to have some pretty serious repetition to turn a skill into habit and form good muscle memory, it’s just as true that you should rotate your training. And remember, there’s nothing wrong with good, old-fashioned plinking. Drilling a few (hundred) holes in pumpkins and watermelons is good for the soul, don’t you agree?
These are lightweight 115 grain rounds, so they’re going to fly downrange with substantial speed and also keep your recoil minimal enough that you should be able to shoot longer without wearing out your hands. They’re MC rounds, which are Remington’s version of FMJ, meaning they don’t expand on impact. That means they’re ideal for target practice, shooting drills, and the aforementioned fun plinking time. Each of these rounds flies downrange like lightning with a muzzle velocity of 1145 feet per second and tears through your target with a muzzle energy of 345 foot-pounds. Only high-quality components are used in these rounds, and that’s good for your gun’s longevity and your performance. Yes, it does matter.
You get 600 target rounds when you order this box of ammunition, and that means some serious range time. With 600 rounds you can kill 600 pop cans (although if you have 600 pop cans at home right now, you might want to check out Hoarders) or put 600 holes in a bunch of pumpkins. Or, of course, you can work on firing prone or increase your speed during Mozambique Drills. And since these are new-production brass-cased rounds with boxer, you’ll be able to spend even more time at the range after you collect your spent brass and reload it. Remington manufactures ammunition at their plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. Order one box for range time and two to get a stash going. There’s no such thing as too much ammo.
