What do you do with live ammo you can't fire?


#1

Hello all,

I just watched the MAC SAR 9 pistol vid on youtube. And one of the malfunctions it had, was a double feed.

I’ve seen else ware, that if a malfunction were to press a bullet into the casing (like what looked like happened in that video), it creates a dangerous pressure issue. Where firing the bullet, would make it so the pressure build up was too great in the case, and could just explode a handgun.

So my question is, what do you do with ammo like that?

Does it create dangerous pressure?

No added powder.

Not pressing on rifling.

Might be a feed issue; but I don’t see why the pressure would increase.

Too little powder and a lot of airspace in a case will, in some cartridges, cause a spike in pressure.

If you are worried pull the bullet (kinetic or collet puller) and reseat.

I use a bullet hammer and separate the components of the cartridge.
