I mentioned last week the problem we had with our Ruger Mark III 22/45’s feeding  the Remington Golden Bullets at Women on Target. These are the pictures of Fishmouths of the bullet when it hit the feed ramp

We also had dozens of failure to fire and when I pulled the bullet and looked in the case each failure was due to primer material not being spread evenly around the rim. In the case where the firing pin hit in the voided area the gun would not fire. This picture shows the primer void highlighted with the blue line and the red circle is when the firing pin hit the rim.

These are the other topics we discussed this week, please click on the link to the Pew Poll, it seems to be a reasonable attempt at a fair poll!
