Default weird ammo/mag issue... help

Hello everyone,
today I went to my new gun range in town with 150 rounds of the "new" ammo from freedom munitions. Honestly out of the box the ammo felt very "clean" and I was impressed. However, about 80 rounds in I had a weird issue I've never seen/heard of. I loaded a round and the mag went "weak". The round fell from the feed lips and even trying to pry the round out didn't work. I ended up smacking the mag on the table to get the round to fall out. I figured it was a mag issue and tossed the mag in my bag. However, next mag did the same thing with the same round. So I inspect the round and the OAL looked a tad long, but nothuling crazy. This happened with 3 different rounds in 3 different magazines. The rounds would give some resistance to loading, but as soon as I got it, the mag would go "weak". I ended up getting 2 of the rounds to cycle in a mag. Just so weirded out. Probably had 1200 rounds down the pipe before tonight and never an issue.

There is no question in your original post.

I never heard of that either, I use freedom New and reload 115 9mm, I've never had any issues in all my mags and guns, 17/19/26. Sounds like a ammo casing problem, contact Freedom see what they have to say about it

OP - perhaps you should contact Freedom Munitions? Maybe they will be able to tell you if they had any recent production issues.
