I have a question about the Remington UMC (I beleive is the name if i remember correctly). Is that a reman ammo or what because I looked at the ammo yesterday and it had discoloration on the end of the casing where the bullet meets the shell and it looked like it may have been from heat but I have no clue? Thanks alot I was just curious

It's not remanufactured ammo. The discoloration you described is normal. I believe this is from the annealing process, someone correct me if I am wrong.

Yeah the BassPro here in Nashville was wanting about $49 for a box of 200 UMC

All the Win Q3131A made in Israel has this same discoloration which is normal.

The discoloration is from the annealing process and is normal, it is often seen on military ammo cause the military is more interested in performance than cosmetics, on higher priced commercial ammo the discoloration is usually polished out.

I was wondering about the discoloration too. My bulk Winchester ammo does not have this discoloration, not like the Remington UMC.
