View Full Version : Questions on PDX-1 .45 auto

So I just bought a box of em for my Glock 21sf and when I go to load them in my mag I notice they almost all have a slight bulge around the entire casing in the middle. A "ring" so to speak. What's up with that? Because only 13 out of 20 have em. I know some brands have a lining or mark like my federal hydra-shoks but it just seems weird. Should I not use it? I will try and post pics as soon as I'm off work :)

I see that a lot on .45ammo. Nothing to worry about.

Why is common on .45 ammo? I don't want a grenade in my hand lol

I see that all the time. its just a little bulge where the end of the actual projectile is in the casing that was made during the load process. nothing to worry about.

Send them to me for proper and safe disposal... ;)

It's very common in handloads, especially using .452" bullets. Just where the brass sorta wraps around the trailing edge of the bullet.

Ur fine, my pdx1 are the same. Some of my reloads have that bulge too but it all chambers fine

It chambers fine but I figured the factory loads would be perfect. My PDX1 9mm are flawless.

Some of the FBI over run Winchester .40 that I have has the same bulge.

I have had those on my .45's as well and it was no problem.

I had one that would not chamber in my XD45.
All the bulge was on one side like the round was loaded off center.
Loaded the mag, let the slide go, and it jammed halfway in.
The rest of the box was ok.
But, I don't trust them after that.
I'll stick with Federal HST+P
