An example from the internet
2 rounds I’ve never fired .223 and 5.7
that would suck
I stopped cleaning primer pockets with the little brush twisty thing, I figure it's better to have a little crud in there to maybe offer a little extra resistance . hasn't been an issue . this is likely a more common issue with rifle cases and I don't do much of that so I don't have superior insight into the really stretched out pockets, for handguns I think the case will split usually before the pocket is too loose.
I had some rattle loose in the hard case. I was on a hunting trip with my wife. So I dabbed some nail polish on after reinserting them. The entire lot was rejected after that trip.
Rifle was a bolt gun. So residual pressure wasn't an issue.
I get easier vs. tighter, sure, but it occurs with a brand of primer (CCI always tighter than Winchester) or particular headstamp.
This sounds like my experience and views.
What type of firearm? What do you mean tied up the gun? How does a recoil spring pop out?
Topic has been talked to death, burial, and resurrection. Lots of great info though.
it was a RIA 10mm. When the slide chambered the round the energy of the recoil spring was strong enough to pop the primer out. The round didn’t go off and the extractor didn’t catch the round when I cycled the slide. But the next round in the magazine tried to feed. Double jam.
thanks! I didn’t realize there was another thread. I’m not to reloading but new-ish to bottle neck rounds.
Wow. This isn’t a good thing at all.
