I do not dry fire that particular gun so rule that out. It didn't used to do this but it has 2 out of the last 3 times I've taken it out.

I'm thinking its the firing pin binding in the bolt, I may be wrong but it's possible especially if it hasn't been cleaned.

more than likely it just needs a more thorough cleaning. then some light lube.

Find it funny no one else thinks they could just be the typical duds. One of the easy ways to figure this out is to eject the round and rotate it. Some times it'll fire which means the primer wasn't spread through the rim properly.

Thats possible but unlikely that there would be that many with different brands of ammo.

Unless your ammo got wet somehow at one point. I've had that trouble with shotgun shells. That got caught in the rain.

A simple look at at one of the rounds that did not fire would show how hard it was hit.

Could you have some "duds" in your ammo supply? The part about one bad one chamber another and it fires makes me think bad ammo----

The thing is I keep all of the ammo stored in ammo boxes while in my possession. I should have checked each round that I spit out for not firing to see where the strike was at. Seeing that it happened with 2 different types of ammo had me thinking it was mechanical within the firearm itself. Pictures of firing pin to come...
