I know this is a reloading forum but I thought I'd throw this out there and see if it's happened to anyone else.
Not sure how common this is but I just had a squib factory round jam up in my 1911. I recently purchased a Springfield 1911 and I took it out for a run through several weeks ago. I brought several brands of factory ammo ( I think all were 230 grain fully jacketed rounds) wanting to see if the gun had any problems with any of the rounds.
Sure enough, about ten rounds into a box of Wolf ammo I heard a fizzle instead of a resounding bang. Long story short, the bullet jammed in the barrel about an inch from the end. Apparently it didnít have enough velocity to exit the barrel.
I just started reloading this last year and a lot of the literature out there addresses this scenario, so fortunately I recognized the situation and did not stack another round up in the barrel.
What do you all suspect is the culprit? Bad primers or did the factory miss the charge? Kind of tugs the idea the hand-loading is a whole lot more dangerous the just buying factory rounds eh...
