    Could be a poorly made case, probably to much soft metal in the brass case. Another thing could be to much powder in the ammo. (1-2 grains can mean the difference in a caliber that small)

    Glade you're OK.

    Wish I'd have found this thread sooner. I had a recent simular problem with a Ruger MkII with Armscor Precision ammo. Only mine had a flat muffled discharge that caused me to check the chamber. It had blown the rim out on two sides. I cleared it, checked the barrel, then switched to Remington and Winchester ammo and had no more problems, I thought it was an ammo problem because many of the fired AP cases showed some distortion at the rim and deeper firing pin impressions where the other two brands looked normal.
    I'll have to used to procedure TOOHSOTKIL mentioned to check the gun... By the way what is an acceptable space for "out of battery"?

    I don't even think much of their center fire ammo. Had a box for my .22-250 and out of 20 I bet 8 never went off. No problem with other ammo.
