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).

"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."
