What You Should Know When Considering Remanufactured Ammuntion For Your Firearms

Buying ammunition for your guns comes with some choices, and picking the ammo that works best is not always simple. Remanufactured .223 firearm ammunition, for instance, is cheaper than new ammo, and in the right situation is a good option for your shooting needs. 

Low Price 

One of the most compelling reasons to purchase remanufactured .223 firearm ammunition is the price compared to new ammo. In most cases, the cost of a box of remanufactured ammo is significantly lower than new ammo when heading to the range with your rifle, you may be able to get some additional ammo for the day with the extra savings. 

While the cost of the remanufactured ammo is lower than other brands, it does not mean that is it not of good quality. The price is kept lower because some of the materials used are recycled, and the process used to produce the ammo is as precise as new ammunition. 

Ammo Performance

When considering remanufactured .223 firearm ammunition, an excellent place to start is at the local gun shop. Most gun shops offer several options to choose from, and you can talk to the owner at the shop to get some information about the brands available. 

Remanufactured ammunition should be on par with new ammo in terms of performance and accuracy, and if one brand seems to have more failed rounds or is not as accurate, the gun shop owner will likely know about it through customer feedback or personal testing. Talk with the shop owner about what you want to use the ammunition for before you choose a brand to try so you are sure you are getting the best-remanufactured ammunition for your firearms. 

Ammo Quality

Remanufactured .223 firearm ammunition is recycled, but the large manufacturers that offer this ammo produce it in nearly the same way that new ammo is made. The most significant difference is that brass casings that have already been fired once are reused in the manufacturing process. 

Each casing is inspected by a very accurate automated system to ensure it can be used again without a failing.  New primers, bullets, and powder are used to assemble the remanufactured .223 firearm ammunition. If everything is working correctly, the ammunition should be just as good as the new ammo. 

The remanufacturing process allows ammunition manufactures to produce the ammo cheaper. That cost-saving is reflected in the price of the product when it goes on the shelf. While the ammo is not match-grade and is best suited to range use, some hunters use it successfully in the field.
