Seems Tim you are not the only one having issues with their ammo
Out at the range today taking a brand new Glock 21 for a maiden voyage.
Ammo: Herters 45acp 230 grain.
Approximately 13 rounds had recoiled much harder than typical. This was my first glock experience. However when one round recoiled significantly harder and was audibly louder I saftied the firearm and began looking for brass.
Findings: multiple spent casings with lines where the brass had buckled and one casing which had a concentric split and another split top to bottom. The brass looked very weak and thin.
I'm aware that Herters / Winchester have just had multiple recalls. Winchester has been made aware of this. The ammunition lot # is SH32L16.
Maybe its isolated but by the look of the brass I'm lucky it didnt result in a catastrophic failure.
Just a heads up to all you 45 acp shooters. If you're shooting from this lot maybe pay extra close attention.
