It should say on your box. What ammo are you shooting? I shoot some Eley primmed stuff and it has a different smell to it.

I had a feeling I knew what ammo you were going to mention as soon as I read the title of the thread.

The Remingtons are Eley primed.
I've never shot the Remingtons but have shot a few boxes of Eley mach 2 ammo and just recently purchased a case.
They certainly have a different smell.

Different powders can have a different smell.

You should smell some of the Russian crap that I shoot through the AK. :smack:

It is like the difference between Remington and Federal shotgun shells. I believe I could easily identify all three major manufactures by just the smell of a spent shell.

Really? It's been so long since I've shot anything besides Federal/Estate that I wouldn't have a clue if other brands smelled any different.

Huge difference in all three shotgun powders. You wouldn't have any trouble at all smelling the difference.

Almost as different as shooting Wolf vs. Remington in pistols.

Eley and Aguilla .22s smell a different than what I'm used to. They stink but accuracy is excellent so I put up with the smell.
