Seems Tim you are not the only one having issues with their ammo

Herters warning
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.

That’s why I load all my own!

I’ve used a few boxes of herters steel 12ga with no troubles but have not used anything else from them.

The only reason i got them was to zero a scope on a new to me rifle, then i reloaded 400 rounds of the recipe that worked best. I should be good for a bit
