Why did this 22 mag ammo bubble out?

Did it sound different. Did it fill a cavity in the bolt face. Was it hard to extract. Give us more of the story please. As is their is alot to speculate.

That is what I would think, bolt face almost has to have a cavity for some reason..Maybe the bolt face is severely dirty? Only happened once? I have never seen that before on any rimfire..

It was CCI ammunition the gun belongs to a guy I know. The gun was a Chiapaa and every shell done this until he got scared to shoot it! I think the gun wasnt locking up tight and he was thinking ammo.

Quality control lacking in some manufacturers.

I have been involved, from the position of attorney for the gun shop owner, in a few law suits involving bodily injury claims as a result of alleged product liability. At least one involving this company. Some guns are just better than others in material, design and workmanship. Those are seldom involved in claims. The lesser companies have problems. If there is a lesson to be learned, buy top quality, pay the price and be safe. Plus, down the road when you sell the gun, or your estate sells it after your death, it will bring more. And there is much pride in owning quality. I submit a 50 year old S&W is a better gun and a better investment that many of today's inexpensive offerings. David

Yeah something doesn't look right. No FP indent. I've seen a lot of odd things with fired shells but never the base bubbled out like that.? Looks like a photo shop. jmo

I must be going blind. I do not see a firing pin strike at all. What brand of ammo is it?
Being a rimfire, shouldn't there be a mark on the rim? Is that round thing a bulge or??

Better pictures would show what the shell is!

Post a picture of the rest of the cartridge---something is not right!

Ken

Maybe there is no firing pin involved. I would check to see if there is even one on the bolt. In the bolt is what I mean.

It’s CCI JHP 40 grain and yes its bubbled out. We couldn’t tell if where it was blowing out if that was where the pin was hitting and the brass was bad or what. He is sending CCI one of the bullets and see if he can get a answer.

What model gun and what's it suppose to shoot? Like everyone else I don't see any firing pin marks on the rim. Almost looks like it's been hit with a center fire pin. Kinda looks like a glass tube on the end of the shell. I've had the base split or blow completely off, but have never seen one like that, Had a Chiapaa mini sharps in 17HH that the primer would flow back into the firing pin hole and would shave off when dropping the block.

Looks like the firing pin hit off the rim more toward the center and the bubble is covering the strike.

Moral:

Don't shoot cheap crap rifles.

Just a thought,is there a way that rifle had the selector on the 410 position instead of the rimfire? I assume that combo had two firing pins ----one for center fire and one for rimfire. I guess that is probably not the cause, but it does look like the rimfire was hit with a centerfire pin. But why the bulge? It should be a dent.
Did any of the rounds your friend tried --work/fire?
Well back to the drawing board.

Ken
