    Guess I'm kind of a stickler for the rules. Must be my military training paying off!

    Well, for about $20 more I can get their newly manufactured stuff. What's $20 these days anyway

    Honestly jdw174, we have had MANY threads on this topic before. Go on Google images and type in catastrophic firearm failures. Most of the pictures displayed are from people using reloaded or re-manufactured ammo. Not only do you risk having the gun implode from the inside out, can't feel real good on the hands either. Now, of course, that's just MY opinion. You know what they say about opinions.............

    from what I read the problem with reloads is in the 40 cal area. I have seen very little in the 9mm so to save 20.00 I would skip it. take a look at lucky gunner.com they always have a good deal on bulk buys

    I'm not an expert on the subject but from what I have researched, guru is correct about the .40 semi being the most common with failures. However, I'm still drawn back to this photo. Ruined some poor shooters day. Could only imagine what their hand(s) looks like. And the complete destruction of a beautiful, relatively high priced wheel gun...............

    That was a strong gun and it was a misfortune that happened and it was due to an overloaded OR under loaded casing. When they are over loaded a little you get a primmer pushed out the back (bulging) and or what you see here but this happens more often when you under load a shell. The powder doesn't fill the shell space for an even burn and instead of pushing a bullet out the barrel it expands like dynamite outward.

    in the case of a semi-auto and KB, the shell casing is not supported on the bottom part of the chamber and blows downward into the trigger area instead of pushing out (path of least resistance) and this happens when reloaded brass thins out with every firing.

    some of you aren’t going to like this but in the early days of Glock and the race for a gun to be marketed for the 40 cal Glock wanted to beat S&W to the market and did by 6 months but in doing so made the .40 cal sit in the chamber to shallow and this caused a higher then average of KB's in the .40 cal. this was in the gen #1 and early #2 and Glock replaced any barrels people complained about for a deeper cut chamber to correct the problem

    It's not worth the difference (a few pennies per round) to me.
