I've been trying to shoot up some off-brand ammunition I've accumulated over the past several years.

This is the highest failure rate for a single box of ammunition that I've ever experienced.

I'm fine. Thanks for asking.

Pistol (Glock 17,) in all outward appearances, seems okay. I just field stripped it a time or two for inspection. I'll break it down further this evening.

Yes, it is. Bought this batch from Cabela's on closeout. I'm quite aware almost every manufacturer says in their warranty or instructions not to use reloaded, handloaded, re-manufactured ammunition.

I suspect what happened here was a combination of things. Poor QC on the re-manufactured ammunition and the Glock not having a fully supported chamber.

I knew that question was coming and it was deserved. I just couldn't imagine it was that bad of a box. Very stupid choice.

Please notify Cabela’s, the manufacterer, and the ATF.

They need to issue a recall right now and conduct an inspection of the manufacturer.

You are proof guardian angels exist. WOW! eek2

Have put many thousands of rounds of 9mm through Glock pistols over the years, including +P and +P+ rounds. Never seen anything like that, though...

I’ve shot several boxes of Ultramax .357 Mag and .40 S&W with no issues. Was not very accurate, but didn’t blow cases either.

That does need to be brought to Ultramax attention and I am sure they would appreciate the heads up and take care of it.
I have used some of thier 223 Ammo with excellent results
