... for a recall to happen it means QA went back to their reserved ammo and did testing, which showed it wasn't the occasional fluke.
You wouldn't believe how much testing is done on each lot! This isn't even 'human error'; it's dereliction of duty.
Yeah ... I'm afraid you're right ... all the way down to the dereliction part. I'm sure some people are gonna get pink slips on this one. [/quote
Oh, we can only hope that is the case!
Hypothetically, if you worked with a real slacker that threw the rounds he was supposed to function in the scrap bucket, and just wrote down a few results on the accuracy test (pulled out of his imagination) whenever he didn't feel like doing his job,his co-workers would figure out pretty quickly.
They might even bring it to their super's attention, who might pass the suspicions on up the chain of command.
If said slacker was a life-long drinking buddy of the dept. head.....well, catch 22.

I had a problem with Winchester 40S&W about 9 months ago, except the problem was the opposite... not enough powder in the round.
I've been shooting for over 40 years. I've never had a problem with a powder charge in a commercially produced round. I don't doubt you, but I'd have to say it's exceptionally rare. I own a couple of presses and hand load exclusively now. In all honesty I'm more afraid of making a mistake myself than finding one in a box from a name brand manufacturer.
Stay safe, brother, and keep your powder dry!
What I am unsure of is how the action cycled, since the bullet did not go past the gas port. Any ideas?
