Sure is. I posted about a foreign ammo awhile back that turned out to be 33% higher in pressure than saami standards and damn near blew up my 9mm in my hand.

From what I read so far on the Remington UMC ammunition is that they use a cheaper powder that burns inconsistent. As far as Remington Core Lokt it is a quality control issue. I went and measured some of the Core Lokt rounds I still had left from that same box. Measurements were all over the place. The case and overall length were all within safe firing specs, but they were extreme left and right. One thing that concerned me was that I had one round that had a bullet thickness that was .14 mm smaller than the others.

I don't reload like many of you do so I routinely fire factory loaded ammo. With that being said, I recently attended a shot show with only two factory ammo/weapons sales reps on site. Hornady and Sig. I was extremely impressed with Hornady. Of course it was a salesman but I had no idea the history that he shared with several groups. Hornady is family owned and there quality control department does not hire men. I found that interesting and before anyone could ask he elaborated that they inspect each round and women are more particular and would not allow imperfections to pass. In fact, if there is a scratch or anything on a casing, bullet etc... it goes into a pile that employees get for free I believe each month. The number of free rounds was high but not insane that I recall. Anyhow, I know my Colt Commando 11.5 SBR waste a lot of unused powder until I found a Hornady round made specifically for SBR's.

I have never had an issue firing Hornady rounds. My problem is in the design of their bullet. I have fired SST, A-Max, G-Max, Black and American Whitetail rounds. My 6.5 does not like A-Max or G-Max. Groups are around 2 inches with the lighter rounds at 100 yards. Not good enough for my 6.5. SST will shoot half MOA, but despite the polymer tip their terminal ballistics are full metal jackets on deer. American Whitetail rounds have a penetration and expansion problem, at least in 6.5 they do. Blacks are freaking amazing in .300 BO. I cannot think of a negative about the Black round.
