    Yes, Remington uses the Boxer primers (the ones with the single hole in the bottom). You will see that the head stamp is "R-P" and it is good to go. Remington is actually one of my preferred headstamps.

    Thanks, I was worried when I bought them I was told you couldn't reload them. But they do have R-P stamped on the bottom of the cases.

    UMC, Not PMC junky. JK JK

    PMC stands for Pretty Much Crap.

    R-P Is very dangerous to reload. You should send it all to me and i will dispose of it properly. Once again, just kidding.

    I believe the 'Metal Case' refers to the bullets, Remington calls their Full Metal Jacket ammo Metal Case.

    Metal case means that the bullets are fmj. It has nothing to do with the cartride casing.
