Thread: Chambered Round: Bullet Retracting into Case

    Is this a problem or can i carry the round with the bullet pushing further into the casing than the manufacture put it?

    I can get a picture if i need to or maybe measure how much its retracting.
    I carry a Taurua PT 111 Mil. Pro. in 9 mm and I carry one in the tube with Speer Gold Dots and have not had this problem , what gun do you have ? and yes a picture would help.

    Here's the bottom line of the bullet "push back" situation.

    The bullet having been pushed back into the case causes a great increase of detonation pressure, maybe far exceeding a +P rating of your round or the capabilities of your gun. At best it will slam your slide back at increased velocity.

    From the common sense safety stand point.....

    The round is UNSAFE to fire and should be thrown away, that is, disposed of properly.

    YOU have to decide IF you want to chance firing that "set back" bullet and maybe damage your gun or hurt yourself.

    There have been plenty of options presented to avoid throwing the set back rounds away... any reloader would be more than happy to accept the set back rounds for reuse.

    There ya go.... fixed it for ya

    If you reload......take the round apart, charge it, re-seat, and re-crimp it, and it'll be just fine.

    Great minds obviously think the same.

    You don't even have to go so far as taking the round apart. A couple whacks in a kinetic bullet puller will move the bullet out far enough to then re-seat and re-crimp.

    So the answer is: to properly "dispose of" all those "dangerous rounds" with the bullets set back in them, send 1/2 to Jay and 1/2 to NavyLT!

    Much good advice on this column.

    Facts remain: 98 % will shoot a deep seated bullet. Admit it guys. You all have done it.

    Getting amateur shooters to "properly dispose" of their bad rounds is like encouraging a liberal to vote conservative:
    Even though it makes good sense, they are going to stick to their old ways.

    Dillon Precision sells a kinetic bullet puller for about $30.00... You seem to have it in your head that 98% of the site members are ignorant to this condition and the damage/injury it could cause.

    Hummm. I'll be happy to volunteer for reloading component reclamation.

    Some interesting info. Lots of experiments have been done in this space.
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..
