    Question Romanian ammo Wierdness

    I bought some of the spam can Romanian ammo that was being sold through center fire systems and others. I had fired about 200 rounds with no problem then a small bang the action cycled and there was a round left in the chamber. on further inspection after I knocked the round out of the chamber that it was complete bullet and all. I looked around and found the blown apart primer and got to looking at the cartridge and to my supprise there was no touch hole for the primer to ingnite the cartridge. has any body ever dealt with this?IMG_1153.jpg

    Haven't heard of this particular malfunction, but some reports of FTF, FTE, problems at the neck crimp, damaged cases with this stuff. It seemed like a good price at the time, but read some of those reviews and stayed away.

    Thanks for sharing the info. I'm going to be opening a can of this soon for range use.

    I've had it happen once recently with Silver Bear 5.45, and once many years ago with a Norma 7.63x54R.

    I've purchased two of those spam cans of 7.62x39. I shot up one of those cans of ammo had absolutely no problems with it, and the other can I'm keeping it for storage. I hope I don't have any problems with that can.

    Thanks all. I have never run into this before. I see now that it is rare to happen.but it happens. I am going to shoot up the rest of that tin and keep the other for a while like T AZ-AK boy. but I find it strange that it would happen to a Norma loading.They used to have the best quality products out there in there market euro calibers and such. I used to hunt with there 196gr loading in 8MM mauser.

    I have seen probably 5 cases of this reported on various boards over the last 7-8 years. With berdan and boxer primed.
