    Squib golden saber load stuck in the barrel pic

    (not my gun, got this off another forum)




    So I was out at the range shooting my Kahr PM9 with some 147 grain Remington Golden Sabers. Loaded my third mag, and on the 5th round, I got a noticeably weak pop instead of a bang. I knew immediately what had happened, and sure enough, there was a round that made it almost out of the barrel.

    I called Remington. They are sending me a pre-paid FEDEX box to ship them the remaining ammo and shell casing, etc... They said that I would be adequately reimbursed at the discretion of the manager.

    They looked up the manufacture date. They said this box was manufactured in 1995. I don't think I will be buying any more ammo from the same store again any time soon.

    I am glad I wasn't double tapping through this mag, as I was doing most of the evening. It was round 5 of 6 in my mag.


    Update

    I just received a package from Remington. They included a letter in which they stated that:

    They did not find any issues with the rest of the ammo I sent back.
    They have a very reliable loading process
    They included 3 boxes of replacement ammo to cover what I sent in for testing (I sent them 1 box plus 6 rounds in another box)
    They are sending me a check for $20 to cover my gun repair expenses (What Gander Mountain gunsmith charged for removal of bullet)

    It is about what I expected, and I can't really complain. They made the situation right. As soon as I get the check in the mail, this case will be closed for me.

    Well, at least it shouldn't take that much pounding to get it out...

    Im'm glad you picked up on it. A friend of mine was shooting one of my .45's and he didnt pick up on it.

    Had a squib and shot the next shot, bulging the barrel to the point that it would no longer cycle...which is more than likely what would have happened to your barrel if you had shot another round through it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Good thing that guy was paying attention. It could have turned out much worse
