So I was at the gun range today. Friend has a new .22lr pistol he wanted to get started on breaking in. He bought the "recmomended" ammo. This happened to me while I shot it:



I was not injured, the gun was not damaged, and the bullet did leave the barrel.

I had heard mixed reviews of CCI ammo, but I generally avoided it because I'd had no problems with Winchester ammo.This has provided me enough reason to continue to avoid CCI ammo. Along with this detonated round, several of them failed to fire on first strike, some of which took more than 2 strikes to fire (this was particularly annoying while attempting double taps). Additionally, the rim was not properly crimped and the extractor couldn't extract a chambered unfired round (we had to rely on the blowback to extract it).

This ammo may be fine for single shot/manual guns (ie: bolt action), but I consider this ammo dangerous in automatics. If this was a higher caliber round (such as the .40s&w that my carry pistol is chambered for) that detonated, it could have had very serious consequences.

I've never really been big on 22 hand guns most I've seen give out at about
500 rounds my 45 (XDM) has done over that (Maybe 3k now)

P.S Yes I know this is old like 2011 lol

I have a .40s&w XD and have shot the XDM. I prefer the XDM, but I got my XD before the XDM came out. My carry piece is now a Kahr K40.

I shoot the .22lr for cheap practice.
