blindpig- I would sound off to PMC about this potentially very dangerous mistake they made!
Good sound advice.mullanman said:Were these rounds already in the magazine before. If a round is chambered, ejected, and chambered again, it will tend to shorten. If it jams in the feed ramp it will set back the bullet. Probably not PMC's problem.
Throw it away and always check your ammo.
Wow, I've been rechambering the same Hydrashock round, yes the very same round, in my HK about every other day for the last 6 mos. and no ill effects yet. First I've heard the prob.nogoa said:I had that problem with down loading and reloading hydra-shocks. Please don't flame me on the all knowing and praised rounds of perfection. I don't like them because they gave me the just explained problem. I do believe any round will do this if chambered enough. (the hydras just seem to do it easier)
my HK's haven't done it either...but my XD has. only once, after that, i payed more attention to it.aiformula said:Wow, I've been rechambering the same Hydrashock round, yes the very same round, in my HK about every other day for the last 6 mos. and no ill effects yet. First I've heard the prob.
Hobocircus, I think you are correct. After I thought about it, I realized that it may not have been as big a problem as I originally assumed with a straight sided round as it would have been if I had been firing my AR-15.hobocircus said:I know bullet set back isn't a good thing and never is, but in the case of straight sided rounds like 9mm, .40, .45 .380.....I would think presure would be increased, but not to the point of your pistol blowing up.
What is the proper way to safely dispose of ammo? If you had a bullet puller you could pull it and dump the powder, but what if people don't have one, or they can't pull the bullet because its too set back? I don't think you would want to just throw a live round into the trash.mullanman said:Throw it away and always check your ammo.
