    Perhaps you should ask the H&K representatives at the next SHOT show? :D

    Looks like an extreme case of operator error to me.

    Well, the bullet is pointed in the correct direction, but the gun needs to be turned around. There, that should do it. :D

    Bullet obviously afraid of the dark/claustrophobic. Tried to escape.

    "...What kind of gun is that?..." It's an Inglis High Power with ammo that doesn't know if it's coming or going.

    Easy

    Fairly easy question...

    Operator loaded a round in the magazine backward...

    Had a student in a CHL class do the same thing last year.

    FWIW

    What CXM said + 1

    The only other explaination I can think of is the cartridge went through the magazine lips and got reversed by the slide.

    The fact that it fed a reverse round is actually somewhat impressive. Let me go try something......

    That's a trifle harder to do with a revolver, although I'm sure it's been done.

    FranCan 115 gr FMJ is pictured.

    According to the FranCan Ammo Spec's, to many shooters this new cartridge design may appear to be different - actually - this is a better design and once the shooter gets accustomed to, will understand we of course are right.

    Justin, you've been watching ABC again haven't you? ;)

    In every box of FranCan ammo there is a users guide.

    -How to stick flag staff into a pile of rocks ( that way you don't drop the flag).
    -How to whimper, whine and say "what happened" in various languages.
    -How to motigate with handcuffs and leg chains.
    -How to properly hold onto cell bars and get a even tan with striped sunshine.

    Should have kept the slide closed they don't rattle as much while using as a club.

    I've experienced that malfunction

    I experineced that malfunction. Was confused at first, till I figured it out.:confused:

    Pistol was Sig P226, 15 rounds magazines. Training session included empty gun (speed) reloads. Since the class was roughly half .45 and half 9mm, the empty gun reload was called by the range master to keep everyone together. I found that when an empty gun reload was called for and my magazines were mostly full, the magazines hit the ground hard enough to compress the magazine spring and occasionally allow a round swap ends within the magazine.:what:

    It only occured when I was dropping nearly full magazines in reload drills.

    If your partially loaded magazine was dropped before being inserted into the magazine well, that may be the cause of your malfunction. Particularly if the magazine springs are aging and getting weak.

    Just my $0.02

    Ok, I fiddled around long enough and got a round to do that (actually, a snap cap, but y'know). If you chamber a round in my 1911, pull the slide back VERY slowly so that the ejector doesn't knock it out, and then drop the magazine while letting the slide forward quickly, you can get it to flip over. It sorta falls down the mag well, and then gets caught by the slide and pushed in backward. I also had good results with keeping the magazine in, pulling the slide back real slow so that the round doesn't actually eject, and then shaking the pistol real hard. I don't recommend trying this with live rounds, as you may tear up a perfectly good cartridge.
