Today we had our first factory squib load,(UMC) the primer fired, the powder did not. We also had a factory (WWB) 380 auto, round had the bullet nearly buried in the case, right out of the box, making a very small but effective pipe bomb, lucky that the case was so budged out it wouldn't chamber
Check That Ammo!!
Speaking of Winchester White Box ammo.
In Oct. one of my students found 2 rounds of 40 S&W in a box of 9mm 115 gr FMJ's The box was sealed when he arrived, and he did not bring any other ammo with him other than 3 boxes of 9mm.
In November, a student reported he had found 2 rounds of .380 in a box of 9mm.
Update: the squib load of UMC was from an older box, that had not been stored in the best conditions
