Default Seriously, Remington?

I'm glad this was facing up as I loaded it. That's lead showing where a chunk of brass should be.

I've bought three 500-round packs of Remington Thunderbolts. In the first box, I had my first ever true squib round (bullet didn't clear the barrel). The second box went well. Now with this one, I've had a bunch of lead deposits in the barrel and today, this. I guess that's what I get for buying the cheapest stuff out there.

And of course I sometimes shoot CCI Mini-Mags (because someone will bring it up).
"An armed society is a polite society." Robert A. Heinlein

"After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military."

That's what happens when you try to run production at 110%.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
