    if you shoot long enough, you'll eventually see some things that scare the crap out of you. WWB 9mm 147gr purchased at Walmart in 2010. Ka-Boom looking to happen.

    Same cartridge.....different angle.

    Wall of shamer for sure. I see this when reloaders forget to flair the case openings (think that's the term).
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

    It happens. I have seen a round from a Federal 9mm duty ammo issued to a police department missing the lead core. That is why you visually inspect every round.

    If it's built by man, sooner or later it will get screwed up. 99% of the time the QC people will catch it, but occasionally they miss one too.

    You got a prototype by accident. Since the "case marking" pin concept isn't going over well, the Brady Bunch is working on the "chamber marking" round that also makes "Semi-automatic" a thing of the past.

    I would definitely contact the manufacture. If nothing else, to alert them to the problem.

    Ditto.

    Given the use of automated equipment and likelihood that far less than 100% of ammo is visually/electronically tested following manufacture, I would expect to find more such problems in ammo.

    All the more reason to heed the warning that some of us were taught when starting with defensive sidearms: always check the defensive ammo prior to loading up the magazines, since if needed then your life will depend on them functioning perfectly.

    IMO, until makers of defensive ammo and firearms put into practice a zero-tolerance, perfect-functioning mode of design and production, we'll need to remain the final testers. And even if that were the case, it would still make sense to give it a final scan/eval prior to use.

    Without a doubt, call the manufacturer and you will most likely get a full replacement box for that bad round.


    Always look at your ammunition before you load it.
    I get your point but how does one not look @ their ammo before loading it unless doing so blind folded?

    My theory is that the box got hit by a tiny bolt of lightning.
