Default Remington Ammo Now 24/7 Operations

Remington will now produce ammo 24/7. It sounds like they werenít already at 24/7 because of supply issues. Hopefully this will help!!!!

Hopefully “stronger than ever” means the Corelokts won’t suck like they had for the last few years.

Nosler needs to get their production act together too. If Remington can do it they have no excuses.

Since federal is the parent company now, I think we will see improvements. Federal rifle ammo has always had shiny clean cases and consistent seating depth of bullets in my experience.

I do know Hornady has made the Corelokt and those green tipped bullets for Remington for many years

I was just able to get a box of 150 grain core lokt in 30-06 from my local wallmart. Bullets all look to be seated evenly and the tips are not deformed. Looks good quality to me

Lets hope they can get the components needed to make shells. I surely hope some shotgun shells start showing up. I only need 5 -6 boxs to do some clay shooting.

Mine yesterday rang up $19.83 I believe. They had a limit of 1 box per customer. They can pound sand for 99$
