    I normally buy from Magtech, Fiocchi, Aguila, Sellier & Bellot for 9mm, and almost all of my 45s are PPU, I've also shot remington, Blazer Brass. None of the mentioned has caused me any major issues. A friend's old Winchester 9mm ammo did have some FTE with my M&P9 M2.0 though. Blazer brass caused some failure to lock slide back on last round on my sig p226, likely due to under powered ammo.

    Yep, but I include Federal under the ATK umbrella which also includes CCI and Speer.

    Not that they can't make mistakes, but when they do, they take care of it.
    Not sure you would be saying this if the accident had compromized his hand/wrist nerves and/or ligaments.

    I am more inclined to go with the up and coming manufacturers that have yet to gain the consumer trust, are still climbing the ladder to the top and therefore cannot afford to make mistakes.

    So if he was injured, he would be better off with ammo from a smaller company? That makes sense.

    Read the thread about the guy who blew up his HK with ammo from a "up and coming manufacturer."
    I think a link to the thread is in post #103 of this thread. Compare how his ordeal went compared to the gentleman in this thread and get back to me.

    No need to get all up in arms, I was merely expressing a different perspective. I don't feel the need to get back to you either, I can exercise my own sound judgment.

    It has been stated by many, Winchester ammo is garbage, I have personally had horrible experience with Remington from customer service to quality control from and their shitty work on many levels of the gun industry speaks for itself.

    You do and preach as you wish.

    That was my guess. I'm lucky have not witnessed anything like this in person. Glad you weren't hurt, it really looks like it could have tore your hand open.

    Fair enough, but if that's a concern then you might want to shoot a steel gun.

    Glad they made it right. Nice to see a company do the right thing even if you did have to get pushy.

    I think I am being misunderstood.

    I was merely responding to what I thought was the poster condoning a multi million dollar company for their bad quality control.

    I personally do not think it is ok, and better still to support any business that can buy their way out of something like this.
    It has to be asked also if and when we do this, how does that contribute to the problem persisting?
    Additionally, wouldn't the more "accidents" of this kind fuel the anti gun crowd?

    So that was my meaning behind my post: accepting and endorsing multi million dollar companies that compromise not only our safety but our enjoyment of shooting and possibly even our 2nd Ammendment rights.

    And by the way, when I said *up and coming* I did not mean "bottom of the pile" / obscure ammo factories ( I went back to post #103 and read the link: I have never even heard of American Outlanders Ammo, or whatever it was called.)
    By up and coming, I meant the big 4,5,6..companies that have been around for a while with a good record.

    I have also noticed a lot of us have attachements to brand x, y, z, whether it is our favorite car, gun or health insurance company.
    At some point they decide to start ripping us off and because we once felt good about them we close our eyes to a lot of things.

    A bit like a bad relationship...:)
