Ammunition from China

Postby chief joe » Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:27 am

&W 44 Magnum accident -

First it was baby formula, then pet food, but now you
should watch out when buying anything from China ,
including bright, shiny, ammunition.

A guy came into the police department the other day to ask a favor.
He had a S&W 629 (.44 Mag) that he wanted to dispose of after a
mishap at the range. He said there was a loud bang when he tested
his new ammo, (Chinese made), and the gun smacked him in the
forehead, leaving a nice gash.

When the tweety birds cleared from around his head, the pictures
show what he saw. Bet he never uses Chinese made ammo
again! Looks like when the round in the chamber went off, it also
set off at least two other rounds in adjacent cylinders. I would
have hated to been the one that pulled the trigger on that one!

The guys on the Texas Hunting Forum say this has been around for years but the "real story" isn't known???
