I got some of the new improved golden bullets yesterday. When I repackaged 100 of them into a used CCI box to prepare for extended testing. I noticed one of the bullets was askew a bit. I wiggled the and it was finger loose and spun freely. I checked several others and there were many more like this. I've seen this before about 8 or 9 years ago in a bad batch of bullets I got. I suspect the only real improvement is in terms of priming based on the reviews thus far and what I can see from the box I just go. Crimps varied a lot when viewed through the clear cci box. I know from reloading that consistent crimp is one of the keys to consistent combustion and accuracy........ We will see if this indicator affects performance. I think in some actions such as a 10/22 with a tight chamber one might find bullets getting munched and deformed during cycling because of poor crimping. I can't believe Remington would be so sloppy with crimp. Maybe they have a hard time with consistent case length or they are running several lines with machines that give different crimps into the same bulk packaging.
