So I was at the range tonight, had a box of 9mm (brand new) and a box of .45acp (brand new).

I was loading my Glock 17 (with the box of brand new ammo), filled it up...


Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! .... Empty!? No, still has rounds in it.

I take out the magazine and examine further. There was a .40 in my magazine!!!

Whew for the glock. But how the HELL did that happen? I didn't have any other ammo with me, just the two brand new boxes.

Weird.


Has this happened to anyone else?


Both boxes were Winchester White Box stuff from Wallyworld. Do you think winchester could have accidentically packaged a .40sw round into a box of 9mm?

I think that your Glock magically converted the 9mm to a .40, just so you could get a failure with it. Either that, or a .40 made it into the 9mm box by mistake.

If it was a USP, it would have used some old school black magic and transformed the .40 shell that was in there by mistake into a 9mm shell. Why do you think they're that much more expensive? I'll tell you why I paid the extra on one, because they're made out of magic steel and magic polymers. I've also heard that USP's are great for killing witches, leprechauns, and even lawn gnomes (last one I know from personal experience) :mrgreen:

Er... I kinda did the reverse of that. Now I know that 9mm rounds will fit in the mags and will feed in the USP, Pulled the trigger "POP" .... the slide stayed open and there was a split open 9mm shell laying in there. No dammage at all to the gun or chanber. Good ol USP

Dude, you should see the stress tests they did when H&K was prototyping the USP. That shit was downright brutal and it came through with flying colors. They even tested with an intentional squib in the barrel. Result: a slight bulge in the barrel and 2 slugs downrange. They'll pull through pretty much anything that you can think of throwing at them. I'm actually contemplating buying a second one just so I can have "my twins". It's either that or buy another Kimber Custom II TLE, and as much as I like my 1911's, the USP is still the smoothest, most reliable pistol I've ever handled in my life. They're a little spendy, but I honestly think they're worth every penny if they fit your hands. Not saying there's no better pistol, just saying that it's the best I've handled so far, which says a lot as I've always been big on expanding my horizons..

With Winchester nothing suprises me. I was out shooting my Steyr M9 one day with a bulk pack of that shit and I found 4 bent...yes bent shells that coudnt be used and I had 3 hangfires.
I would call their ass and bitch to high heaven. Shit like that is dangerous.


As far as HK...yeah too pricey and I generally dislike the USP. Only HK pistols I ever liked were the HK4, P9S.

Ok, one bulk pack, 3 hangfires. That shit's not right. That's downright dangerous. Not that I was ever big on their ammo to begin with, I'm probably not going to buy winchester ever again.

I only buy it between large orders of Wolf or S&B. Worst ammo I ever used was Ultramax 380 auto. Primers were so hard the damn thing wouldt go off. I switched to somre american eagle and every one did. It may have been an old gun (Beretta 1934) but it wanst messed up at all.


Winchester whitebox is crap. I mean you shouldnt expect much for ammo that made in the USA that is close in price to Ruskie steel cased ammo.

I want to know how the hell my ammo got bent. WTF!?

Don't you know sometimes borred employees will juggle ammo. Those bent casing are a classic oh shit I dropped a couple.

was it the last round in the mag? is there a chance it was in there already when you started loading the 9's? not likely but, given the other proposed rational i thought i would throw it out there.

How effective are they against invading hordes of plastic pink flamingos?

Not very. Pink flamingos use a different kind of magic. It's kind of like wearing body armor against non-magical handguns................................................aaaaand that did it, the joke just ran itself into the ground.
