    I had an issue seating a pellet. A CPHP. I was just loading without looking and had all kinds of issues.

    Well hell.....there’s yer problem. :). Slipped through quality control.

    Wow, that isn't just a minor QC event. Rest of the tin look good? I know everyone makes a mistake now and again but that looks like 3-4 mistakes on its own.

    Funny stuff.

    Honestly it came out of my “big bucket O’ CPHP”. I have a .177 and a .22. “Bucket” where I have dumped several tins together. Not the smartest for consistency it they are my cheaper “plinking” pellets so to speak. Still plenty accurate in the vast majority of my airguns but mixed tins/lots.

    That is the first pellet I have ever gotten that looked like that in at least 15-18 years of more “seriously” shooting airguns.

    I had two badly deformed .177 hollow point Crossman pellets in the same tin a while back but never another one.

    That's a "DoubleLethalSuperDefenseHyperKiller" pellet that would normally sell for $1 each, must have slipped in by accident. [:)]

    Not pellets, but BBs. . .

    I shot a lot of BBs as a young teenager. One day, a squirrel fell out of an 80' oak in the back yard, and we noticed because the crows were starting to eat it alive. I grabbed my BB gun, with easily 3k shots fired, pumped 10, cocked, flipped over to feed from the magazine chamber. . . and it locked up. Locked hard.

    I had to finish the squirrel with a spade, buried it, and then took the BB gun apart. Lo and behold, the single two-eared BB of the thousands through that gun, 5k in the jug, had jumped into the feed ramp right then. I've never seen one since. . .
