In remington UMC ammo what is "MC"?

In remington UMC ammo I know that ammo specified as "MC" stands for metal case, but does that mean the jacket around the bullet or the cartridge case (the ejected usually brass cartridge case)?

Is it safe for barrels? I know steel cased ammo is supposed to be bad right? Or is the jacket actually copper?

The Remington website doesn'ty clarify it.

If you google Remington, you will find out that UMC stands for Union Metallic Cartridge Company, which combined with Remington in 1912 as a single entity. MC has nothing to do with metal case, except by coincidence. Wikipedia gives a good, historical background.
The term Remington UMC is now given to Remington's bargain pistol and rifle ammo. I have used it in several handgun calibers- reliable, fair accuracy, but lots of flash. I have a few boxes of 7.62x39 which I have not tried yet.

Thanks Timjo,

But I was not referring to the "MC" in UMC. They have ammunition in 9mm and .38 sp (and others) specified as MC instead of FMJ or SJHP, that's the MC I am referring to. On the Remington webpage the code for MC is "Metal Case", but I don't know what they mean by metal case.

IMO, MC, when referring to Remington, means either

Mighty Cheesy

or

Magnificently carbonizing

Take your pick, I choose to pick "not Remington".

Metal case is just a synonym for full metal jacket or ball
