    Hello

    Today at the range while loading my magazine I noticed that the Hornady 9mm ammo I was using has one short bullet in the box. I didn't shoot it for concern. Any thoughts?

    Concern - yes, a bullet seated that deep will produce higher than normal pressure; a big no no firing it. Very interesting to think Hornady missed this. maybe the round was mishandled by someone, then again a fair drop directly onto the bullet tip should have indications?

    Thank you 312

    I may contact Hornady tomorrow & see if they want it returned. Glad I caught this & didn't shoot it.

    Yes, wise not to fire that one. I keep a kinetic puller in my range bag, a couple of taps and its good to go. Even non- reloaders should invest in a kinetic puller IMO.
