I've read through most of the posts on 17.HMR faulty ammo, both on UK and American sites.
Some if not most of these posts are some years old.
Do we know yet whether these problems have been cured by CCI? What is the general feeling?
I recently had a tip stuck in the barrel of my Browning T-Bolt. Mercifully I could not chamber another round and diagnosed the problem there & then, but of course, did'nt carry my cleaning rod to tap the bullet out (easily done later). I don't think there was any powder in the casing, but not sure. Can't remember what manufacturer, but all made by CCI by all accounts
I've not noticed split cases, but then, I've not been looking. Will look from now on, and check the rounds before firing.
As for accuracy, I try to zero in absoloutely minimal wind conditions, but still sometimes have weird results. I may be crap but surely not ALL the time!
Does'nt fill one with confidence somehow!
