That IS a QC issue. By definition.

I imagine if you contact Hornady directly they will make it right by you. I've heard nothing but glowing compliments about their customer service and commitment to the industry.

Across the span of ~8yrs or so, I've probably purchased 100+ boxes of Hornady mfd rounds in both rifle and pistol flavors. None had general quality problems, nor did any have cleaning media or other stuff stuck in the box as evidence of lax controls.

But other than these, and the rare individual round here and there that didn't feed due to apparent age-related crud on the outside of the case impeding feeding, I can't recall any overall quality issues with any of the basic brands I've consistently used. About the only "perfect" rounds I have used have come from DoubleTap, for both 9mm defensive ammo an .243 rifle ammo.
