Defective bullets

I've come to the conclusion bullets are like a box of chocolates you never know what your going to get.
Hornady 165 sst
Barnes 180 TTSX (Tip wasn't in the box)
Nosler 180 AB
Nosler 180 Partition PP

Re: Defective bullets

Cool pics.
Wondered how many of those I will find per thousand in blemished that I just got. Hopefully the GMXs will be better QTY but at 1/2 price I will take the chance. How many of them have you seen in the past? All brands.

Re: Defective bullets

none of these where seconds. This is the only hornady I have ever had a problem with. I've had several barnes TTSX with the tips messed up but never had a problem with the Tsx. I've definitely had more nosler's defected than any other.
