Caution-Ultramax Remanufactured Ammo
See the post I made and tacked to the top of this board about Ultramax Remanufactured ammo. I closed that thread, but created this one to allow for comments.
Note the photo on the far right, that photo is from 2007, posted on another message board complaining about Ultramax lack of quality control, although they had claimed those problems were taken care of, 5 years later things are still getting through.
This is precisely why I don't recommend commercial reloads, or firing any reloaded ammo you didn't personally load, here's a very nice new Rock River carbine destroyed by that ammo, you have to give a big plug for Rock River since they replaced the damaged upper even though it was clearly caused by the ammo.
I don't buy commercially reloaded ammo, if I did, the ONLY one I would even consider is Black Hills.

Certainly a human put those rounds in that box, Stevie Wonder could have seen the Bullet Setback on those. Something is Really Wrong with that Company. Doesn't seem like they should be in the reloading buisness, cause they obviously don't get the "attention to detail" part that is required to do it.

Just to make sure everyone understands, not my gun!
Although not in the info i received, I'm relatively certain that the KB was caused by a squib, people have to be really careful if something goes click instead of bang, stick a bullet in the barrel and the next shot can be a disaster. The shooter in this particular case noted he had 2 prior cartridges that were noticeably lower power than the others, he probably got one he didn't think went off, jacked in a fresh cartridge and pulled the trigger, KABOOM!
In all my life I've had one squib, it was back in the early 90s, I was out shooting one day, that particular pistol was an S&W mod 469, that's a double stack compact 9mm, as I was shooting I got a very small pop instead of a bang, even though I hadn't ever had one I was pretty sure what it was, I cleared the pistol, and sure enough there was a bullet stuck in the barrel, got the bullet out (that sucker was really tight!) and no further problems.
If you shoot and there is anything way short of what it should be, unload and check for obstructions before going any further!
