I just ran across this old photo of a 10mm. handgun round I found in a box of Winchesters a few years back. Please excuse the photo as it was just scanned with a scanner before I had a digital camera and isn't very sharp. I doubt if this round would have fired but if it had there definitely wouldn't have been a gas seal since the primer had been seated sideways in the case. It just goes to show you that you need to check not only your reloads but also your factory ammo before you use it.

I got a Federal 38 Spl once that had the primer in backwards. Called them and was hoping I would get a little something, nope. Now I check all primers on the ammo we get.

Quick fix to the problem is to start handloading. Sure its still possible to get the primer in backwards (done it twice myself) but atleast you know exactly what went into your ammunition.

I got a box from my old dept. and one of the rounds had a bullet seated upside down.

Does that mean it will shoot backwards?
