At the range yesterday, one of the members was shooting factory .308 Winchester 150 FMJ ammo he had just bought. One of his rounds didn't eject. Upon inspection, it was a squib load. After punching out the bullet from the barrel using a rifle cleaning rod, we checked the brass. There had been no powder in it. The inside of the brass was shinny. The primer alone propelled the bullet about an inch into the barrel. Thankfully he didn't manually insert a live round after it and fire! End of story...NO! Several weeks ago a group of friends went to Eastern Oregon sage rat hunting. 3 of them had .17 cal rifles of various brands. All 3 had squib loads during their shooting! Again, no powder in the brass. Just the primer pushed the bullet into the barrel. The .17 ammo was purchase recently. What's my point? Is this just random or could it be from rushed production from the ammo plants? We've heard that the manufacturers are working over time in a frantic rush to meet demands during the ammo shortages. Will sub-par ammo be the result? You be the judge. Squib loads are dangerous if another round is fired behind it...so heads' up...just in case it happens to you! Blue Skies!
