Fm reman ammo

I am not a reloader so I have always bought new ammo. I like their new ammo but sometimes when I get their emails the reman catches my eye, what do y'all think? Let me hear some of your experiences with it?

Fm reman ammo

It's just as good as their new stuff. Bullets for pistol calibers are Copper Plated over lead core (not FMJ) rifle bullets are FMJ. Everyone here seems to love the FM reman ammo, I reload so I don't use it but I do use their Copper Plated Bullets from Xtreme.

I take that back, I Do use their 55 grain reman 223 in my S&W Sport. It's good ammo. (Haven't picked up the dies for 223 yet)

I love the stuff, I have been using Freedom Munitions reloads exclusively for range ammo for 5 years without a single problem. I presently have over 6000 rounds in 3 calibers sitting in my ammo locker. I wait until they have sales with free shipping and buy in large lots much to my UPS drivers regret. A normal order can be between 100 and 140 lbs.

No problem with any that I have ordered...380 and 9 MM. Still have some that I need to go target shooting with.

I've never seen a difference between their New and Reman. All good stuff.

I have a mix of their new stuff and their reman. Have not noticed a difference in its performance.

I bought their new ammo in 380, 45, & 9 with 1 box of 9 mm 135 gr reman just to try in my micro 9 & it was fine, no issues at all.

I'm with everyone here I guess. I bought a case of FM 9mm, 115gr reloads and found it to be clean, accurate ammo. I did find one round with an upside-down primer. I've also bought the American Steel, steel case 9mms from them too and they shoot great in all three of my a great price!
