I have not used this guy but am not using any Reman ammo anymore. There are a lot of horror stories about reman ammo. I never had any damage to a gun but had terrible quality control issues. I have had lots with no crimps at all, too low of power to cycle factory Glocks, too inaccurate to be used(20+MOA in a rifle). Buyer beware with reman ammo!!!

Also be sure and check ammo prices online. A lot of these places are not much of a savings if any. I checked a few products on his site and they are well above market rate for new ammo. In that case I would for sure not even consider him. Save some money and buy new!! You may have waited a week too long. If you are at all thinking about getting ammo get it today!

If you are going to respond at least know what you are responding to. Looking at JC Arms & Ammunition website their ammo is factory new not remanufactured. :mrgreen: Prices seem reasonable, I could see giving it a try.

Why on earth would you use him if he cost more than big name brands? Factory new or reman only means the brass was either new or previously fired, all other components are obviously new. You will have the same quality control issues new vs reman. In fact that batch of 9mm that didn't have crimps was "factory new" from a reman place. I thought the new brass was worse than the previously fired so we never ordered new again. Buy Federal and call it a day.

Plenty of your quality control issues stem from using previously fired brass. And a reman place is probably running both types through the same equipment which will lead to issues like your lack of crimp because they likely don't sort brass by length and adjust it and they likely don't adjust their equipment from run to run. A place that only manufactures "new" ammo probably has more consistent component supplies and likely keeps their equipment better dialed in for those components.

With that said though I shall bow out of this thread since I don't have first hand experience with this brand which is what the OP is looking for.
