Sort'a... Grin  Jammed slide with a live load. Not in battery. Shocked  

Hand loaded a ton of ammo without any problem until today.  Loading 115gr XTP 9mm today.  Fired a few and checked for all the signs of trouble. Fired a few more and then it happened. Jammed tighter then a bulls you know what.

First time I have run into a off center bullet. Apparently, based on internet searches, its a not uncommon problem with 9mm's. Cool

I dont understand what happened :/ a bullet is lodged in the barrel? Dosent seem like much of a problem if the bullet didnt feed right and the slide got stuck.

Not yet.  Reloaded some more tonight and drop tested them in a Glock barrel. 50% failed. Gonna try more flare with the expander tomorrow. Undecided

This was not the 19's problem.  Definitely a ammo issue. Cool
