    Blazer Brass Bullet Rounded Off?

    Was loading up Mags for a trip to the range and came across this round with a rounded off bullet.
    This from a case of Blazer 115 Grain FMJ I bought a few weeks ago.
    Is this normal to get defective rounds in a case? I'm relatively new to shooting this is my first case of ammo.
    Thanks for any input.
    I'm definitely not going to shoot it.

    Never seen this. I shoot about 500 rounds of that same ammo every month.

    That's awesome!! You should keep it as a collectors item...or "ammunition" to get free ammunition from blazer!

    I'm going to go through the rounds already loaded to check for any defects.
    After Goggling Blazer Brass Ammo defects I came across a story of a 40 round of Blazer with no rim and few stories of the bullet being shorter.
    Also going to pay more attention and look for obvious defects in the ammo when loading Mags.

    All good ideas

    Do you plan to contact blazer customer service to see what they say? Maybe an issue with the whole lot? Maybe your calling attention to the issue will prompt them to issue a notice to others to look out for the same issue?

    Yup I went to the website and sent a email describing the issue and I'll follow up with a phone tomorrow.

    Nice...keep us posted. I have several cases of blazer brass in my stock, hopefully no issues with the lot.

    Yup I'm not loading that thing. I got lucky that it was the last round loaded in the mag and could plainly see it.
