I took my CCW renewal course last night. I had my S&W Centennial and a box of Remington Target(Remington, not the Remington UMC box) .38 Spl LSWC for my range ammo.
The first ten rounds performed as expected but the next five rounds, while chambered, would not let me close the cylinder.
I punched out the offending five, loaded another five rounds and everything worked.
I tried loading the miscreant five rounds again and once again, the cylinder wouldn’t lock in place.
I selected a different five rounds and all went as expected.
Then I loaded the despicable five again and no lockup.
I set the offending five aside and this morning did a side by side comparison with the other rounds in the box and there is no discernible difference I can see. Case length, OAL, rim thickness look the same as the rest of the box.
Has anyone here experience this?
Is the problem with my S&W(I seriously doubt this but I have to admit my confidence is shaken being this is one of my carry pieces!) Or is it with Remington?
