    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.

    PMC makes brass case mostly. Blazer is the aluminum case company, but they also make a line of brass stuff.

    I have a nearly unlimited supply of brass at work, if I so choose. I am just picky about my brass.

    UMC is US made by Remington (Union Metallic Cartridge). PMC is Korean (Pangsoon Metal Company AKA Pot Metal Company). Blazer is a dual line made by CCI. One side of the Blazer line is Aluminum/berdan primed, non-reloadable. The other is the relatively new Blazer Brass, reloadable.

    Scrounged brass is definately worth picking up. Clean polish and sort according to head stamp. As long as you sort, you will have relative consistent loads. I generally save up brass, load it all and when boxing it up I sort by head stamp. That way each box is consistent. I tend to load 1000 at a time, though.

    One point of range pick-up brass.... you have to inspect it more closely that you usually do for brass you fired. You have no idea how the person who reloaded it before you. It may be split, cut by bad dies, had over-pressure loads loaded in it, etc. I also try to stick to the 1st line (or even second line) name brand headstamps. Stuff like Amer, "star-star" etc are throw-aways to me. My weapons (and my face and hands) are more important than trying to save .02 cents by using a low-end piece of brass.
