    Has any BOG experienced or witnessed a KB caused by bad reloaded ammo bought from and used in local shooting ranges?

    IN such a case, would the range owner/operator be liable for the damage/s and/or injury?

    I know one IDPA shooter who used Jethro reloads for his G30. I believe it was a squibb and he double tapped on one course. He showed the barrel to Jethro. Jethro shouldered half the cost of the barrel. Better than not doing anything at all.

    I have no answer on range owner liability.

    Once upon a time I squibbed on P.B. Dionisio range ammo.
    No biggie... I just field stripped in 2 seconds, tapped the bullet out real easy, checked for any real need to clean, reassembled my BERSA Thunder 380, and resumed shooting. The casing (reused) of the problem cartridge had blown out... it was an S&B casing too.

    Since that time (2003), P.B. Dionisio has vastly impoved the quality of its range ammo... apparently matching the quality of their commercial 'Bullseye' line of cartridges, save for the semi-wadcutter shoulder on the range bullets.

    Range liability?
    Haven't a clue.

    Yes, those are true.
