Default cor-bon 380

gotta go buy new ammo for the 380's. checked my ammo tonite and found 37 out of the 60 rounds of cor-bon hp ammo i bought the bullet was very loose in the case. so much so i could almost pull the bullet from the case with very little effort. ammo is about 4 months old. not sure the bullet weight.

anyone else experience this with cor-bon??

gonna just blow it off at the range next time.

got a 380 die? Just run it up in the crimp die and it should be ok.

not yet but seat depth may be an issue since i dont know the paremeters of the corbon rounds what poweder is used or bullet weight to get a correct seating and crimp. that thought did cross my mind and i do need to get some dies for 380 since that stuff is sometimes hard to get.

was just wondering if anyone had run across this with any corbon ammo regardless of caliber.

its not that big a deal i dont even have the box anymore ill just shoot em at the range next time i go. ive never had any issues with cor bon its one of the brands i look for. im not bashing em or anything everyone has a bad day now and then.

ive just never had any problems with my 45acp ammo or other boxes of 380 ive purchased for SD in the past from them. i generally just buy whatever the heaviest hp ammo is available im not tied to a certain brand other than avoideding steel cased ammo.

was just wondering if anyone else had come across looseness in bullets like that. ill just be more diligent when i buy ammo its possible some kid was jacking around with it in the store. i typically load my own for everything but 380acp and 12ga and im correcting that soon but i still buy off the shelf defensive loads.

Default .380 Cor-Bon Ammo

Cor-Bon ammo pushes the limit of SAAMI perameters, so reseating the bullets could pose a problem for your .380 and your health. As pointed out by "Overkill0084" let Cor-Bon make it right.

i bought two boxes of new cor bon 380 earlier this week to replace the fmjs it looks the same but all the bullets are tightly crimped. i think someone was playing with em at gander mountain when i bought the first two boxes.

im not gonna recrimp em since i dont have their load data and i doubt that it was corbon's fault with the original ammo.

havent been to the range yet planning on a trip friday or saturday taking the bersa thunder plus 380 my colt python, series 70, and new agent. gonna shoot the loose ammo i got for the bersa and no im not gonna hold corbon or bersa responsible if i booger up my gun. im just super curious to see if it has issues with iffy ammo. if it runs fine ill trust that little gun even more than i do now.

plus i want the cases building up a stockpile of 380 for reloading since the damn things are hard to find.
