    Was loading up a magazine yesterday and noticed one round looked a little strange.

    An AK or a Glock would fire that round just fine.

    I'm at work, but if anybody is interested I can post some better pics in the morning. Not really worried if it would have caused an FTF or FTE/stovepipe, but if it possibly could have damaged my gun then I may have to start examining my ammo a little more closely

    high primer

    out of battery detonation or light strike
     
  11. It looks like the case head is all mangled too.

    Yeah, its bad. It looks to me as if the primer is seated where it normaly would be. But the brass looks bent inward all around it.

    that is pretty bad, but every nasty malformed piece of factory brass I have ever come across was UMC, I try and stay away from them now.

    I've got a .45 Gold Dot somewhere with a big chunk missing from the case mouth.

    I've heard a few stories about Remington ammo lately - I'm not going to be buying any anytime soon.

    send it to me, I'll shoot it.

    I shot a rusty, pitted round of wolf ammo I found on the ground last time I went shooting.
