I found myself in need of replenishing my supply of .357 ammunition so I decided to try some of the Remington bulk packed ammo from Wal-Mart, 125gr. JHP's product number L357M1B. Upon firing It seemed as though some rounds had more recoil than others, a friend also said the sound level seemed inconsistent. I set up my Chrono and within just one cylinder load, found velocities to vary as much as 125fps! I assume this is the reason my groups were much bigger than usual. I opened the second box, this from a different lot, the same problem occured, was actually worse! If this is common with Remington ammunition, I have no idea but at better than $40 per 100, I seriously doubt I'll do any more R&D with Remington bulk packed ammunition. I'm fortunate that I only bought 200 rounds of this, I had planned on buying several boxes for future use. Since all ammunition sales are final-no refunds or exchanges, I'd have wasted a bit of cash. Looks like I'm going to end up paying about $40 per fifty rounds just to get some quality loads. Stocking ammunition in any quantity is getting very expensive!
