Just bought a new case of Carry Ammo and found this. I’m obviously not going to carry it. Is this rare, and can I shoot it at the range? (It’s Federal HST)
I’d contact the manufacturer and send them the picture.
Have them check and see if there is a defect in their manufacturing process.
A sheriff’s deputy friend of mine was burning up his carry ammo at the range (per department policy) and had a failure to fire with one round of Fed Hydra Shock. He sent it in (He’s a swat team lead)–Federal sent him a case.
Let us know what they say about it (please and thanks).
I put in a message to the from there site. I tried calling but they’re off on the weekends. I’ll try to see if I can get a hold of them tomorrow. I am disappointed because I buy/ pay extra for this ammo because it’s been proven reliable and it feeds well in my gun. I wasn’t very impressed with this box though.
Definitely notify the manufacturer and don’t fire the defective ammo. Not worth it.
Had a similar issue once and the manufacturer, in my case Sig, was great about it. These type issues are great reminders as to why we check ammo before loading.
That’s if you are lucky enough to have them respond. I had an issue with underwood and havent heard back in over a week. Good luck!
Indeed they are! I will admit that sometimes I will stop checking as well as I should. Thanks for the reminder!
One way to get manufacturers’ attention quickly is to post it to their social media pages. Pictures are worth 1,000 words. They’ll be more than happy to help you remedy the situation, from what I’ve seen, if you mention it on their social media pages.
I emailed them Saturday night. They emailed me Sunday morning asking for info. Today (Monday) they informed me they are sending me a $10 refund. I’m really shocked. I’m very happy. They made me a life long customer for my carry ammo!
