question for other shooters

Has anyone ever gotten a bad box of .22 lr before? I have had 3 rounds malfunction in 2 different guns that all came from the same box. What they do is sort of backfire (the rim either splits and fragments or gets blown completely off). It is quite startling and I hope I havent damaged the guns. Thanks in advance.

Yes I've had the same thing happen to me! It was pretty scary my buddy was standing on my left if he would have been standing to my right it would have been bad! It happened two times i thought the first time was just a fluke but it happened again several rounds later that's when the ejector pin blew out of the gun!! Not good!

pmc? the only report i heard of this was with pmc and the report was regarding the teency tiny revolver (naa?) but i wouldn't trust the ammo, i can't see how that one gun created the problem. i'd return for money or exchange another brand, KEEP the resulting parts/particles for proof.

Thank you, all the ways I googled it I could only find people asking about dud rounds. I have fired many thousands of rounds of .22lr and this is the first time that this has happened to me. I was using a bulk box of Remington Golden Bullet - high velocity ammo by the way... I was going to ask if it could have damaged the guns but you sort of answered that already... now, do you think I should take them to a smith or would you test them yourself with another ammo? There is no VISIBLE damage, as in nothing cracked or blown off but I dont want to have warped or stressed something important. One gun was a lever action .22 rifle, the other a semi auto pistol.

I'm not sure if it was Remington or Winchester ammo one of the to but the gun was fairly new semi auto rifle so I took it back to the dealer & they fixed it free of charge! I've used both kinds of ammo since then & no trouble :fingers crossed :

I think the first thing I would do is to call Remington and bring this to their attention before someone gets hurt. (that is assuming that the ammunition is at fault).

Not uncommon with rimfire ammo.
I've found defective 22LR, short and even 22 magnums.

Common problems are they're over a year old, have spent time in a moist environment or stored in heat exceeding 100F.
Any of which could have happened before you bought it.

If the casings are out of round or look odd thier forming dies are worn out.
Rare but it happens.

Clean your guns very, very well, make sure there are no casing fragments in the body or worse a bullet stuck in the barrel.

Best thing to do is return it to the store you bought it from as a saftey concern.

They will replace your ammo deal with the mfgr directly.
