Nope - Factory Remington CORE-LOKT 150 grain PSP. I shot most of the box at the range without any problem.

I grew up in the Lowcountry and started hunting in the fall of 1977. I shot real wild quail over my uncle's uncle's Brittany spaniel. I didn't realize then but am keenly aware now how "storied" my growing up was. I hunted quail and ducks in the same areas where Havilah Babcock and Archibald Rutledge roamed. At the time I was unaware of them or the history, I simply lived the life in front of me. I was given a boat when I was 12 and ran the upper Cooper River. I was forced to read Huck Finn but couldn't understand the fascination - it was what I did just about every evening when I got home.

Kid don't get to grow up like that any more.

Odd, that brass looks like it has been reloaded.

Rubberhead,
If our kids let our grandkids run like we did, the county would take them away. I often took my shotgun to school and rode the schoolbus to my cousin's and hunted til dark. Today, the SWAT team would meet me at the school's door.

I never joined the rifle team, but it made me think of walking the rifles through campus, taking them from lock up to the on campus range. Never a second thought or worry.

Maybe, if rh has reloading tools, he could see if it is possible to seat the fired primers in deeper on the fired brass like it shows on that light primer strike round. There is probably a quality control issue if it came from the factory like that.

If I had to guess, the primer seating step in manufacturing, or possibly even reloading, would have had a stop to prevent crushing a primer and maybe the firing pin pushed it in a deep pocket.

The misfired cartridge sat in a stew of rain water, pine straw and willow oak leaves for two weeks. I'm sure the tannins/tannic acid did a lot for the cosmetics of the brass.

He was likely referring to the obvious junction of case web and case body that looks like the case has been resized.

The primer is also flattened, as if it's actually a fired primer.

I have a few boxes of that same ammunition, so I opened one and looked.

The Remington primers in the new cartridges look exactly like the one pictured, without of course the firing pin strike. They are seated as shown. The web junction is also evident.

The pictured cartridge is to my satisfaction a misfired factory round.
