28 Gauge ammo Question

Anyone know anything about a 28 Guage Remington-UMC shotty shell? Its loades and live but its basicly has a cardboard type casing. Pretty damn weird of a shell if ya ask me and I will say I aint gonna shoot it.

were paper or card board as you called it.
They are as safe as any plastic shell you
might shoot.

Not to mention that I find something about paper shotshells classy. I don't know why. I just feel like I'm an Englishman on a fox hunt when I use them.

They have been around a long time.
It's a cheaper Remington cartridge.
I've shot thousands of them with no
problems.

UMC stands for

Union Metallic Cartridge co. It's one of the companies that purchased Remington late 1800s. UMC purchased the rest of the stock from Winchester in early 1900s, and was bought by Dupont in the 1930s. So the UMC thing is just a manufacturers mark.

If the paper shell is old stock they become
unstable with moisture and swell up.
Not so much dangerous but hard to extract.
That's a lot of the reason for the newer plastic
shells.

Look around for some old brass shells.
Should be some on EBay. Man they look huge
