Remington Ammo For Sale
History of Remington Ammo
Levi-Strauss. Harley-Davidson. Coca-Cola. Remington Arms. All iconic American brands. But when it comes to arms and ammunition, nothing is quite as iconic as Remington.
The Beginning of Remington Ammunition
Eliphalet Remington founded E. Remington & Sons in 1816 in Ilion, New York. He began with a simple idea that has driven countless American entrepreneurs: Sure, there was no shortage of flintlock rifles on the market. However, Remington believed he could do it better. To that end, he built himself a flintlock rifle for a shooting competition. At the age of 23, Remington didn’t win gold, but he did take the silver.
A funny thing happened for a man who had just came in second place. So many of his fellow competitors wanted to buy his rifle that he found himself officially in the gunsmithing business. Remington already had significant experience gunsmithing. His father was a blacksmith and the younger Remington learned how to make rifle barrels after visiting a plant.
Remington is, of course, alive and well today. More than that, it’s the oldest firearms manufacturer in the United States. They’re currently the only company manufacturing both firearms and ammunition in the country. The original plant in Ilion, New York, is still standing and still turning out some of the highest-quality goods of any kind America has to offer. There is also a retail store and a museum standing on that site for those looking to learn more about Remington’s history.
The Remington rifle business was officially born, and has grown into what is now the oldest manufacturer of firearms in the United States. They are an iconic gun brand that is the only company in the nation to produce both firearms and ammunition domestically, the largest producer of rifles and shotguns in the U.S., and the largest developer and adopter of cartridges in the world.
E. Remington & Sons innovated and expanded throughout the 19th Century, eventually relocating closer to the Erie Canal, where a portion of the Ilion firearms plant still exists today. The company incorporated in 1865, introduced their famous rolling block rifle, and branched out into the manufacture of typewriters in 1873, which they sold in 1886. And in 1888, Marcellus Hartley and partners acquired E. Remington & Sons, reorganized the business, and renamed it Remington Arms Company.
In 1912, Remington Arms merged with the Union Metallic Cartridge Company to form Remington UMC. Not many years later, they constructed a new plant in Ilion, New York, which continues to operate to this day. During WWI, Remington had contracts to produce M1907-15 Berthier rifles for France, Enfield rifles for Britain, and 1891 Mosin-Nagant rifles for Russia. They also developed and manufactured M1917 Enfield rifles as well as the Pedersen Device, an innovation for the M1917 that allowed it to fire short .30 caliber rifle cartridges in semi-automatic mode.
The company actually came close to going under during the First World War. A large number of Remington rifles were ordered by the Russian Imperial government for the war effort. The Czar’s court, however, was broke and had no way of paying for the arms. To that end, they kept delaying payment on the basis of faulty manufacturing. Finally, when the Communists seized power in Russia, they repudiated the contract entirely, leaving Remington high and dry. The United States government eventually stepped up and purchased the firearms.
Expanding the Remington Catalog
Expanding their product line in the 1920s with diverse items of interest to a wider audience, they started producing and selling cash registers and cutlery like pocket knives, hunting knives, and household utensils. Remington started selling clothing with company logo patches at this time, which grew into their popular line of clothing and accessories for hunting and casual wear. This line was eventually discontinued in 1995. The reason for this diversification was the excess manufacturing capacity Remington grew into during the war. Rather than let the factories sit idle or sell them, Remington found a way to keep the factories running.
During the Great Depression, Remington was purchased by another iconic American company – DuPont. Interestingly, the biggest money maker for DuPont at that time was not plastics but rather an improved form of gunpowder. This made the purchase of America’s leading ammunition company a natural fit. In 1936, at the nadir of the Great Depression, Remington had another company milestone: They went international with the purchase of Brazilian ammunition manufacturer Fabrica Nacional de Cartuchos e Municoes.
While DuPont acquired a controlling interest, it wasn’t until 1980 that it completely acquired the company, making Remington a wholly owned subsidiary of its parent company. DuPont eventually sold the company for $300 million in December 1981.
In 1940, the U.S. government requested Remington to establish an ordinance plant. They located the plant in Independence, Missouri, and called it Lake City. Remington opened a total of five plants in the early years of WWII, where they manufactured their iconic M1903 Springfield bolt action rifle chambered for the .30-06.
Remington Shotguns and Other Firearms
A decade later, Remington introduced one of the most popular shotguns ever made – the Remington Model 870 “Wingmaster,” a 12 gauge pump action shotgun. They expanded into other markets during the 50s by acquiring the Mall Tool Company and adding power equipment to their product line, including chainsaws and other electric, pneumatic and gas powered tools. Through the 1960s, Remington introduced the plastic shotgun shell, the Model 1100 autoloading shotgun, and the Model 700 bolt action rifle. Remington shotgun ammo is some of the best in the business, make sure to check out our full selection Remington 12 gauge ammunition in stock and ready to ship.
By the 90s, their focus was on their core community of firearms enthusiasts. Remington recently returned to manufacturing handguns with their M1911 clone chambered in .45 ACP, and their R-15 and R-25 rifles inspired by the AR-15. They have broadened their markets to include a television series, products for domestic security and their Model 887 Nitro Mag series of shotguns. However, the focus on firearms owners who demand quality continues, with an emphasis on duck hunters and three-gun shooters.
Remington ammunition and firearms are as iconic as the brand is American. And curiously enough, Remington rifles are present in the national flag of Guatemala.
Remington Ammo in the 21st Century
Remington continued its diversification in the 21st Century, when it turned an eye toward surveillance and security as well as firearms and ammunition. License plate tracking technology and other surveillance tools were unveiled by the company. At the same time, Remington founded a new subsidiary, Spartan Gunworks, for the purpose of making a high-quality shotgun available at a price point just about anyone could afford, showing that they were still keeping the focus on quality firearms.
A private equity firm, Cerberus Capital Management, purchased Remington in 2007. This included a lot of assumed debt, as the company did not turn a profit between the years 2003 and 2005. The company was then renamed, appropriately, the Freedom Group – which was renamed once again to the Remington Outdoor Company in 2015.
After several years of profitability during the Obama Administration, the company filed for bankruptcy in March 2018. Like many firearms and ammunition manufacturers, it saw a downturn in overall sales and profitability after the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.
Where is Remington ammunition made?
Remington ammunition is made in the Remington plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. The company owns other facilities, most notably in Ilion, New York, but these plants manufacture firearms, not ammunition.

What is the best Remington ammunition for hunting turkey?
Remington offers several ammunitions for turkey hunting. Remington Premier High-Velocity Magnum Turkey Loads offer “rifle-like” distances with perfected shot patterns, while the brand’s Nitro Turkey loads feature extra-hard lead shot to maximize impact. The company also offers Premier TSS, which has the highest density shot available in a turkey load. Remington offers shotshells for turkey in 10 gauge, 12 gauge, 20 gauge, and .410 bore.
Is Remington ammo waterproof?
Remington ammo features a waterproof seal at the neck between the casing and the bullet, as well as at the primer pocket. This ensures added reliability regardless of the weather conditions.
What year did Remington buy out Peters Cartridge Company?
Remington Arms bought the Peters Cartridge Company in 1934. Remington used the Peters facilities to expand their ammunition manufacturing during World War II. The plant was used until 1944 then sold to Columbia Records.
great ammo, fast service will do business with again
friend and I fired 100 rounds to break in a new 1911 R1. Loved the gun and the ammo.
This was a very good deal. Good Quality ammo
bought it for practice ammo.good value.no feeding or extracting problems after 100 rnds.
Will buy again for sure
great ammmo great site. quick delivery and very covenient
excellent price, service and quick delivery. Just what we all want in a provider. Best part is the price. Next is the fact that you only show what you have in stock, big plus in my book and next is the lightning fast hand off to the UPS guy. I have over 200 rounds already thru my new SR1911 and gun and ammo performed flawlesly, I Shall Return, (remember him).
ammo performed very well, and I would recommend this to anyone.
Great ammo. Shot rounds through SIG PRO 2022 9 MIL and BERETTA Px4 STORM full size without any jams or problems. Very accurate ammo, great quality, shoots clean. Will buy again. Would have been Five Stars however cost of ammo was a little too high.
It was a great price for the ammo and it shoots great with no problms. Will order more when I get done with this lot.
GOOD STUFF. DO NOT SHOOT ANYTHING OF LESSER QUALITY. MORE ACCURATE THAN I AM. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR.
I have used this in my Glock 21 for duty and it has always performed outstanding, great ammo!

The ammo worked perfectly in my Remington R1S. Shipping costs hurt a bit.
Rick Frank R said:
This is no doubt a very good quality ammo. It is also accurate, that is according to the shooter.
I think the ammo is great! just a bit expensive cuz of handling
Have shot about 500 rounds of this stuff through Ruger semi auto pistols and a S&W revolver. With the Ruger I experienced many fails to extract, FTF, stovepipes etc. As another guy mentioned, the powder loads seem very inconsistent, some loud, some quiet, one quite explosive, and a few real smoky and squibby. Accuracy OK with the ones that sounded the same, terrible with the weird ones. In the revolver the main complaint was it took three strikes sometimes to make them shoot at all but accuracy was again OK with the ones that sounded the same. Both these guns work fine with CCI minimags so I'm sure it's an ammo issue.

Bought 2 buckets of 1,400 each and thought it was a Great value if you have the time to wipe clean bur and or separate poor quality manufactured bullets from the Rest. I learned the hard way that lots of ammo had still bur and that the reason why my m&p 15-22 rifle kept jamming. I definitely don’t recommend this for a semiautomatic rifle. After carefully separating the ones with bur my SR 22 and others worked decently with jams here and there.
WHAT'S TO SAY? THEY LOAD WELL, GO BANG WELL AND PUT A HOLE IN WHAT EVER YOU ARE SHOOTING AT. AFTER ALL IT'S REMINGTON!
The powder is not the same from one shot to another!! Some even sound like it is a cap gun and others are fine. I would not rec. or buy anymore Remington ammo!!!!
have a springfield xde 45 shoots well recoil is lower vs 230 grain
185 Grain MC Ammunition,, Is a nice light load and fun to shoot,, Yes you can get FMJ 230 grain bullets for less money but once you shoot the 185gr or the 165gr the recoil is much less intimidated and can hold on target should you need Or want a follow up shot
This was my first order and I was surprised it was delivered so fast. I was also surprised they had what I wanted. Ammo is hard to find. I will definetly order again.
I was impressed with the ammo I purchased for you. The price was right.
1st time shooting this new pistol, Smith &Wesson, M&P, 4" barrel. 1st was the target ammon to get used to it then full mag of the Remington. Very accurate even in rapid fire. 6 out of 10 in 4" circle. Other 4 within the 6" circle. In other wards, all round placement, terminal.
The only thing that could have been better is the price, but with everything that is going on with gun control the price was still acceptable. Thank You and i will be purchasing more in the fucture
Have run over 14,000 rounds(yes...that's fourteen-thousand- plus) through my Sig P229 and I believe maybe two or three were misfires. I am very satisfied with the product.
I am a returning customer the ammo is always great and priced below others out there shipment couldn't be easier . This is a great company to do business with
What a mess, jams, powder build up.... this ammo did everything it could to foul my weapon. I blew threw cheaper Russian AMMO in my Ruger SR40C no issues, cleaning was average. As I closed in on 80 rounds of this Remington ammo you could tell it was going to be a long afternoon, powder all over the muzzle, then the jams started and cleaning took forever! Would not recommend.

I went through the entire 100 rounds in no time. Good old Remington "white & green box" ammo is well-made, and (so far) 100% reliable. I haven't had a single mechanical issue with this stuff (I've also used it a lot in the past). And the price is right for Practice Ammo!
bought a new khar cw9 ran all 100 rounds through it and had no problems whatso ever
Got this ammo for a great price in bulk. It performed great also. The store is a lot more even on sale . So this ammo is a great buy for us people that have the somewhat oddball calibers. Along with fast shipping it’s a win win situation
I've used Remington ammo previously and thought I'd give it a try in 357 Sig for my new Sig P320 Compact. I've only shot about 200 rounds of the 500 rounds I ordered so far, but all of them have been issue-free. For the price Ammo.com was asking you can't ask for more than that. Good stuff and I would order again without hesitation.
theyre good brand
This ammo shoots very well also. Really good accuracy.
I've shot this in a Marlin 39A, Enfield BSA Trainer, M4 Colt with 22 subcal unit, SIG 226 with 22 conversion and my Colt ACE. Functioned well in all. No problems feeding or clean up.
A lot of reviewers on different sites say this ammo is junk . I have a gsg 522 always used this ammo it's accurate ,no problem rapid fire auto feeding only issue after around 2000 rounds the gun needs a complete tear down to clean it is on the dirty side AMMO.COM is GREAT TO DEAL WITH
I was a little hesitant at first, but Ammo.com delivered as advertised. I expected a little higher price due to the ammunition shortage and found that other dealers are pricier. I will be a future customer.
These are difficult times with regards to getting ammo of just about any kind. This was a bit pricy, but not too bad and shipping was as expected and the quality was fine, but have not shot a lot as want to make sure to have some on hand.
Gun Clubs are always one of the best shells out there, but the price was still high.
Service was good as was quality of the shells.
this ammo is great
excellent rabbit shot, great pattern.

There's never been a reason to change the ammo that I've been shooting, and if the deer mounts on my wall could speak, they would say the same thing...
good stuff never had any problems with this round have used it faithfuly for over 15 years.
Recently received my second order of 5000 round lot. Shoots well through a revolver, semi-auto rifle, and semi-auto pistol. Outstanding value, very clean ammo, unlike Aguila, which was gummy and super dirty, causing failure to feeds. Very pleased with the ammo. I'd seen reviews in years past that were negative, but couldn't be happier with purchase.
I used to shoot this when I was a boy. A few decades later I tried it again, and a few more decades later, it hasn't changed. If you enjoy spending your time cleaning your iron, this won't disappoint, because it's the dirtiest, most filthy ammunition I've ever shot. I have one brick left from decades ago purchase and might use it when I run out of my other brands, but for my iron, I doubt I'll ever purchase any ever again. It gums up ALL my iron every time. It's my last choice desperate use ammunition, because of that. I've never found another brand that's as Dirty as the Remington .22 ammunition.
Good product good price shipped right on time
ammunition works fine
I shoot this load in my Beretta. There is always an issue with .22 primers. With these Thunderbolt Rounds I'm have greater success with .22's than others. They also work great in the Ruger Mark IV or Buckmark pistols, and my 10/22 Ruger rifle. As of today I have ordered another 2k more rounds.
Ordered this on a Friday evening, received my order the following Tuesday! Great shipping time, NICE find also hard to find bulk ammunition lately!! Thank you
Its not cheep but it worked good. nice tight groups
goes bang when you pull the trigger.
I have been shooting Thunderbolts for years .... cant go wrong here!
I love your service it easy and very fast service u use great shippers. I never did this before,but this is the way 4 me. You have me 4 life!
Have shot 200 rounds. All fired. All ejected. All good.
Use it in my kel tec p30 all good . Like everyone a little pricey.
No issues used with my Glock 19C.
Bought 1000 of these to teach myself how to shoot a snub nose Smith & Wesson. Gone through more than half. Each kicks the same. No miss fires. Come out of the cylinder easily. Will buy them again to keep in practice.
Will be buying from you again soon!
bought 50 rounds to run through my ruger cmdr no issues loading or cycling for practice on paper,plates and pins so came back and ordered 500 more rounds
Will from u guys again great customer service
I was looking for something to shoot that didn't cost me an arm and a leg. There were no 9mm or 22LR available so I bought these 38SPL rounds. They performed quite well and allowed me to shoot my old model 6. 4" heavy barrel S&W. Over all I am happy with the results.
I find this to be a quality practice ammo at a good price. Your service was prompt and will probably use ammo.com again for some 9mm ammo.
Ran flawlessly, not one jam or problem. Great price and fast shipping.
Great ammo and the delivery was even better than expected
Good value and quality ammo
I would defiantly recommend this to any AR owner! Clean, Good accuracy , No Misfires, No Fail To Eject, No Fail To Load just keep on shootin worry free! Normally it's a lot cheaper hopefully soon this ammo hording will stop and we can all get the fair market price.
Nothing like using good ammo to make you feel good about yourself. Pushed it out to 300 meters and anything off target was probably my jittery finger. Cycled well under rapid fire. I like it!
No FTF or FTE's in my Ruger Mini-14
Great ammo and a very reasonable price. Great service.
Great fun ammo for steel targets.
CANT GO WRONG WITH THIS AMMO
remington did it again with another great ammo and ammo.com low price you can't bet it.
