View Full Version : stupid 223 ammo question

01-14-2007, 2:49 PM
for the first time in my life i have better access to an indoor range than an out door.

so i will have to be shooting ammo safe for indoors that is low/no ricochet

i know frangibles and JHP's are ok, but i picked up a few boxes of remington UMC metal case ammo

now is that the same as full metal jacket? anybody know if this stuff is lead core or steel core? if its lead core can you shoot it indoors?

please let me know, thanks:)

i went over the ammo wtih a magnet & doesnt stick

The UMC is jacketed and should be lead core, its what I shoot in my AR (outside range though.)

you can shoot your Ars at Iron Sights in Oceanside if they are built to legal configuration, I talked to them today about it. The only ammo you can't shoot there is Wolf and Hollow Point ammo.
