Ammo manufacturers

I haven't been able to learn the differences in manufacture, and who and where, of the low end sub-brands of ammunition. These include the American Eagle of Federal, UMC of Remington, and so forth.

I have read some opinions that they are made offshore on contract to other manufactures. Also that they are made using equipment that has worn beyond normal tolerances.

My personal experience is mixed, from no difference to a batch of UMC 45 auto that ran 100 fps slower than normal.

Thank you for any facts on this topic.
