So as I was departing this weekend, WG had my .338 in hand and noticed some oddities with the cartridges I had in my buttstock shellholder - the bullets weren't seated into the casing properly. This was a fresh box of Federal Premiums, .338, 225gr TSX.
Yesterday I had a chance to inspect the the entire box, I found 11 to be poorly seated in the casing. 1 of which I was able to slip out about 1/8 of an inch.
What level of danger would this pose? Obviously one could assume an unknown amount of chamber pressure can result in this. I chose not to shoot them.
I picked these up at a good price from SW about 6-8 weeks ago, no one else had what I wanted. I spoke to the CS dept in Wasilla, I told them I knew ammo sales were final but due to their policy of not opening boxes of ammo, any issues would be unknown to me until I needed them, they gladly accepted them back with a full refund, no questions asked - Kudos to them.
