Did you open them up to check after you found them? Like robo said, the cases can very in weight, as well as the bullets.

The ones I did found, were at the range. The range master broke one open, no powder!

The current Blazer Brass ammo will do additional check with a weight scale; however, will pick a weight scale in a few days.

All I did was quick examination; but, once I have the weight scale will do the check.

Could it be a miss shaped projectile? Maybe not .355 in diameter. Could even have been mixed from another round.. I couldn't imagine the gun being at fault.. you could check the oal of some other unfired rounds that have been loaded into the gun

The bullet that was in the chamber is .355 in diameter, and 5 of the unfired rounds are 1.154-1.156. Going to just blow it off as a bad round.

To update this, I sent the remainder of the box back to CCI/Speer, and as promised, I got a replacement box, and an extra box to cover my shipping.

I am hoping to hear if they find any issues with the ammo, but they made me happy. Got to love a company that takes care of problems and treats customers well.

Thumbs up to CCI/Speer.

I really love the service provided by the CCI/SPEER/RCBS et al family.

Usually fast service without a charge. They make great products and back them up..

Good Job Fred_G
