Chinese Ammo

I received this in an e-mail from my friend Norman
Might want to pass this on to training.

Subject: Buying Chinese Ammo

Yep, ammo made in China.

.44 Magnum accident First it was baby formula, then pet food but now you should watch out when buying anything from China, including new ammunition.

A guy came into the police department the other day to ask a favor. He had a S&W 629 (.44 Mag) that he wanted to dispose of after a mishap at the range.

He said there was a loud bang when he tested his new ammo, (Chinese made), and the gun smacked him in the forehead, leaving a nice gash. When the tweety birds cleared from around his head, the pictures show what he saw.

Bet he never uses Chinese made ammo again! Looks like when the round in the chamber went off, it also set off at least two other rounds in adjacent cylinders. I would have hated to been the one that pulled the trigger on that one!
These are the pictures that went along with it:

Either someone put the wrong size ammo in, the ammo was labelled wrongly, or the ammo from China is badly flawed and purposely so.

For those who are experts in the field let me know in the comment box.
