LONOKE, Ark. - January 23, 2024 - Remington Ammunition has announced their new UMC Leadless line of cartridges, including 9MM Luger and 223 Remington. These rounds provide the same performance and accuracy as traditional UMC FMJ ammunition, while remaining fit for use in lead-restricted ranges and regions.

“UMC is some of our country’s most popular handgun and rifle ammo for the range. We are excited to unveil a lead-free version that can be utilized by shooters required or choosing to shoot this style of ammunition,” said Remington’s Director of Centerfire Ammunition Products Kris Carson. “Our engineers did an exceptional job in creating lead-free rounds that deliver the same performance and firing experience as conventional ammunition.”

The development of this new style of projectile was driven by the objective of enabling target shooters to practice and train in regions where traditional lead ammunition usage is limited. The completely lead-free bullet incorporates a jacketed lead-free powdered metal core and the Catalyst lead-free primer, eliminating lead components in the loaded ammunition while maintaining accuracy and performance equivalent to conventional loads.

SKU / Description / MSRP
R21420 / 223 Rem 55 Grain Lead Free Jacketed - UMC Leadless / $27.99
R23809 / 9MM UMC Leadless 100 Grain Jacketed Lead Free / $31.99

All UMC ammunition is proudly manufactured in Lonoke, Arkansas, ensuring the highest quality and performance for practice, competition, and personal defense.
