    Makes sense, another good reason for range time.

    Thanks for this info

    since i have been LEO with the US Navy during the time we used the 1911
    the Navy required that all 1911s be carried in condition 3....
    on duty we were issued the 1911 and magazines with ammo already loaded
    these bullets were dark with oxidation but since they were not chambered
    there was no warning about re-chambering ...

    when we were required to qualify on combat range
    we were issued the 1911 with empty magazines
    and loaded the rounds on the range ourselves, but
    it was interesting the rounds were shiny and new

    since my conditioning with the training with the Navy it has been a hard
    transition to carrying condition 1 thus now i must contend myself to these
    problems of re-chambering.. thank you again posting this info

    That certainly sounds the like the exception side of the spectrum. Good information though. Just make sure that you aren't using the top two rounds all the time if you have frequently load and unload.

    The only place I'll re chamber a round is at the range.If it doesn't go off on the second try in my range bag so I can dispose of.

    I posted some time ago on this more than once.

    My carry ammo was in the same mags that I used for IDPA. I would empty the mags and use them to shoot the match, once a week most of the year. When reloading the mags it was in random order. I also did a lot of dry firing. I will admit I carried this ammo for a long time, around 5 years. When I went to use it, I was shocked that it didn't go off. I had 4 that failed to fire, and 2 hang fires, out of 25 rounds. The rounds were chambered full force, from slide lock or pulling the slide back and releasing it. I now ride the slide to reduce the slamming affect.

    I have never seen much in the way of setback, in my carry ammo, the bullet would get a bit deformed at the nose, not much, but no setback.

    By the way the 4 rounds that didn't go off, the primer charge had moved into the powder charge.

    With the cost of good defensive ammo its just another reason I carry a revolver (or 2).

    I just bought 500 rounds of JHP ammo so I can avoid that potential hazard. Removed round will be fired at next range trip.

    I shoot any old cheap stuff to practice but when I remover my "good stuff" mag I always leave the chambered round in and it is the first out of the barrel. Good stuff only gets to the barrel once. Same with the cheap stuff. It a bullet gets to the barrel it goes out through the barrel. No worries about seating. Then when I reload the good stuff one goes into the chamber, drop the mag out and load another "good one" into the mag.

    Problem solved./

    Its only been a couple of months since someone posted a pic of a really beat up round, And wondered why? It wasn't till later that he admitted that not only did he unload and re chamber each day but he would drop this round into the chamber and drop the slide on it! So this is not unheard of.

    One other thing stuck out at me, In the OP's story it said that the officer had unloaded everynight since 2011. and could have been loaded over 100 times before it failed.
    Unless this story was several years old it would be way over "100 times".

    My own personal belief is that well stored ammo will last many, many years. I have shot some that was definitely over 50 years old, without any failures. But carried ammo may be subject to things that stored ammo will never get. Vibration, shock, heat and cold, etc. I know my service van has been over 150 degrees inside from being parked out in direct sun for a few hours. So I rotate carry ammo every couple of months. I have caught a little flack from others here for it but that's my thing. And this guys story, gives me validation as to why I do it. DR

    Nice read. I know I unload when going to range and shoot my practice rounds then reload all magazines and chamber a round in my carry. Every 6 months I shoot my defense loads to keep fresh loads in my carry.

    Unfortunately, the range where I shoot requires that all guns are unloaded before entering the range. Ammo has to be re-chambered at that range. That's why I keep the old rounds separate for the next trip to the range. First mag contains those re-chambered rounds as collected before trips to the range.
