    Why is the Remington Ultimate HD 9mm casing thicker?



    brother gave a box of this to me for free. I compared them with my other 9mm's and the casings on the remington are just slightly thicker. Any reason why? my eyes are bad? Have never shot these before... i already know it will feed into my G19... Just curious

    Dunno...nothing about Remington I especially like. Ruger guns hate the stuff-jams up every time. Short barrel pistols don't like heavy weight bullets...don't get into the 147grain stuff as you may have failure to feed issues. Happened to my buddy. It's probably because they were not "taper-crimped" for better accuracy. Personally if my tail depends on it, I would use that Hornady Critical Defense Ammo as it was the FIRST of this type stuff and they have perfected it. They make large, open, fatal wound cavaties...as per their old advertisements. Never seen one out of spec or had a problem with their ammo.

    My guess is the plating thickness as well.
