    This is a good argument for carrying a bug that uses different ammo.

    Well there goes my hopes of getting their ammo cheap since they are giving it to training. I remember listening to one of the OPD officers that works in the armory telling another IDPA shooter about .223 rounds failing in the ar-15s they use. Said they blow up more than you'd think they would. Doesn't do any damage but the officer shooting usually needed a new pair of underwear.

    Something tells me they are buying reloads,the only failure I saw in the military was a squib round and barrel was not checked for obstruction before chambering a new round,next trigger pull was enlightening,the BCG was bowed out which split the side out of the Upper Receiver,a few powder burns and a new pair of titey whiteys,and a new M16 and it was all good

    from what I overheard while waiting in the scoring trailer it didn't do any damage to the gun so they aren't squib rounds. He said it doesn't happen all that often but more than one would expect. No clue if they use reloads for OPD but I doubt it. Who knows, just found it interesting is all. Haven't had any problems in the few hundred rounds I've fired in my mini-14 and don't really expect any either.

    I would think it would be difficult to catch a squib in the heat of a firefight. I can easily see that happening.

    The real question is: Is Remington going to issue a recall?

    I use Remington Golden Saber in .380, .38+P, 9mm and .40 S&W and have NEVER had a FTE or FTF.

    The Remington Golden Saber ammo in .40 S&W was recalled by the California Highway Patrol and not by Remington. Therefore, I would wait for Remington to issue a statement or wait and see if they will post a recall. I seriously doubt it.

    This is why I shoot and use Cor-Bon DPX in all my guns. Used Golden Saber ammo years ago in my 357Magnum revolver, none left now.
