Default Dirty Ammo???

Purchased 5 boxes of ammo (.380 Armscor) and took my P230 to the range yesterday... after just one box of this ammo, I noticed what I can only describe as "soot" (not unlike an old oil furnace, in need of a very GOOD
cleaning) covering the inside of the chamber area and also in the magazine well. I've gone through alot of ammo, in my 50 + years of shooting and
have NEVER come across this much filth, in just 50 rounds.
My question is: Did I just happen to buy a very bad batch, or has anyone else had this happen with this ammo, in .380 cal.? I have 4 more boxes and certainly hope they are not the SAME batch.
Have a great day... T

What's the problem???

You're supposed to clean your weapon anyway.

If I can get reliable, safe ammo at a good price, even if it's dirty I use it. Then I clean my weapon.
To the world, you may be only one person. but to one person you may be the world.

While I agree with Locutus, you should be cleaning it anyway, it does seem like a pretty dirty set of rounds if your gun looks like a fireplace after 50 rounds.
