I bought a case of this a while back after being very impressed with Fiocchi USA's .38 Special ammo. Price was good and the XTP bullet has a good reputation for accuracy. After shooting it, I can testify that the stuff is accurate but, dammit, I don't trust it for anything other than practice. Out of the first 50 rounds, one of the cartridges had a badly seated bullet with a section of the brass case ripped off at the mouth. Another round had a primer that took two strikes to ignite. I went to the range this morning with a second box and had another round with a primer that did not ignite the first strike. It did fire after chambering by hand on the second strike--as did the first failure to ignite. I'm not clear on whether or not this was a primer issue or cases that were poorly sized and did not seat in the chamber properly the first time, thereby causing the light primer strikes. I've had no issues with the gun (G30) when using other ammo--Blazer Brass, Federal Champion, Federal Hydra-Shok, Winchester Ranger T, Remington Golden Saber, some very old PMC, WWB and UMC hardball, etc. I've also been doing this (shooting) for a few decades and I can't recall having a lot of ammo issues up until now. Has anyone else used this ammo and had issues with consistency?
