commercial made ammo will be like that. How ever it will not cause any problems firing. What happened was the bullet was pressed a little to far into the casing.

Also it must have past the specs for the manufacture.

True and false.

In some calibers\handguns, yes. 99.9% of the time, this will not be a problem with revolvers.

Since this is a semi-auto, if the bullet is pressed too far into the casing, it can expand the casing out far enough to the point that the round does not fully enter the chamber. And that my friends, could cause a issue.

I picked up a new carry sidearm and wanted to test it out during lunch. I bought the federals to just test and get a feel for the gun. I bought some winchester PDX1's as the main carry rounds.


I figured that I'd shoot 50 rounds of the federals through it, then fire a few PDX1's while the gun was "dirty" just to make sure the hollow points cycled properly in the gun's worse condition.

Yeah, that doesn't exactly surprise me from Federal. Like you, I've used them for plinking, but mostly use the Winchester's as carry rounds.

Have you seen the ammo that the military uses. All those cheap commercial reloads.
