I have experienced same problems with Hevi-13 Rem Hevi-shot and Nitro.....Use glue or candle wax to fix the problem.

Nope but I have had that problem with the winchester supremes. Must be a common problem with most "turkey loads".

I have had that happen to mine I started putting some glue on them with a tooth pick to fill the crimp. Then I put a coat of finger nail polish on them. Works good for me.

Every box I had of the older Remington Hevi leaked buffer. I always put glue on them. I got some hevi 13 a couple years ago for my daughter to shoot. I didn't check them and they leaked buffer in the magazine. It was so bad that I couldn't unload the gun. When we got home, I checked all the shells and some were not only leaking buffer but had shot coming out too.

Had two Mag blends that the crimp failed last year. I noticed one prior to use, but the other was one that wasn't noticed until my partner shot. Sounded like a .22 going off. Thankfully, he was able to get off a second shot.

I will try the glue trick on all of them from now on.
