What's a hang fire? Thanks for your knowledge, I was worried and glad I posted this. I got the ammo at a local gun show.

Pull some of the bullets and check for powder as well. The Ctgs appear to have had the FMJ bullets replaced with Spire point hunting bullets. You need to find out if these are Boxer or Berdan primed and are they corrosive? I hope you cleaned your rifle well after firing these. I would pull the bullets reprime them if they are Boxers and reload the bullets and powder.

Hang fire can happen when you get click instead of bang. The primer hit starts the primer, but for whatever reason, the primer starts a slow burn on the powder. The slow powder burn may generate enough heat to make rest of the powder go bang several seconds after the trigger pull.

If you get a click instead of a bang, stay in control of the gun, keep it aimed downrange and wait. Then wait some more. 30 seconds or so will seem like all week, but wait anyway. Do not eject the round immediately, it could be in the process of going bang slowly!

A buddy had some reloaded .50S&W ammo for a very large handgun. Something was wrong with the reloads and we got a hang fire about every third round or so. Most of the time the result was more like a fizzle. It pushed the bullet about 1-2 inches down the barrel and stopped.

The moral of this story is: If you have a hang fire, DO NOT LOAD ANOTHER ROUND! Clear the weapon and make sure the barrel is actually clear.

What you have there is Korean M-2 ball ammo. Generally decent stuff, just not as good as the Greek "HXP" ball.

The acronyms to remember when dealing with Korean ammo is

"KA" Means Korrosive Ammo. Primers are corrosive and the gun needs to be cleaned properly with hot soapy water after shooting

"PS" Means Pretty Sweet. Non-corrosive ammo. Clean in the normal fashion.

Wow, thanks for the info! I do clean all my rifles after I fire them. And I will wait that 30 seconds or more if I have any more mis-fires. Thanks a lot again, this is no joke!!!

Remember, your conventional cleaning products will have little or no effect on the corrosive nature of the primers. You MUST use a cleaning method that neutralizes the corrosive salts. Ammonia is reported to be good. Some folks claim Windex works, but there is no ammonia in Windex anymore. It may just be the soapy water nature of Windex.

Hot soapy water works. Balistol was and is used for followup on this type of cleaning.

What are the numbers on the case head? As said, that appears to be surplus, not reloads.

C3 look closely at the bullets. It is very common to pull FMJs and install soft points for hunting and range use.
