"Tried ammo in a revolver. The lead is not seated good, cylinder would not rotate half the time due to lead not pressed in completely. I could also pull lead from casings with fingers. I will not buy this brand anymore unless I buy equipment to seat lead into casings."

"I use this ammo for Cowboy Action and Silhouette shooting. I have found it to be very consistent and it feeds very well in my Marlin."

"I have shot the 158 gr LRN in IDPA, both training and matches. In the last 3 months, I have gone through about 1500 rounds. The ammo has not given me any problems. It has had reliable ignition but is a bit smokey and leaves the revolver with more cleanup than would jacketed ammo. Overall, this ammo does well. It does make IDPA power factor (125,000) right out of the box (chronographed at 850 - 860 fps). I do wish S&B would use a softer primer. I wish I had purchased 10,000 rounds when the price was $8.50 per box."

"Despite being wimpy, creating more smoke and sooty dirt than recoil, the bullets kept creeping out of the casings, locking the cylinder. I could pull the bullets out of the casings with my fingers. It could have been funny, but it wasn't April 1st."

"I have fired over 2000 rounds of this ammo at the range. It works fine in heavier revolvers (S&W 686), but do not use in alloy frame or light 38spl revolvers. The recoil will unseat the bullet in the last round in the cylinder to the point it jams the cylinder. The S&B FMJ round works well in these revolvers."

"See my review on the S&B .38 wadcutters. Same problem.The head of the casings is thicker than usual (making up for a cheap alloy? I don't know). Not only do they tend to jam in many revolvers with precise headspace, they don't fit the shell plates on my reloading equipment. I'd mixed S&B brass in with a few hundred rounds of other stuff, and had to methodically weed it out and chuck it, as it's not reloadable, at least on Lee equipment.I did not notice the \"loose bullet\" problem some have reported, but if a bullet is loose enough to pull out by hand, you are losing pressure and muzzle velocity, and creating a lot of fouling. But CRIMPING the brass is the solution, not seating the bullet more deeply."

"4 out of 50 bullets didn't not fit my gun. It seems they were to big and the cylinder wouldn't cycle thus causing it to bind up. I will not be purchasing this ammo again unless it is given to me and even then I would be hesitant about using it and it would be be the last box in my ammo stash."

"while firing this ammo in a Charter Arms Undercover, I found that some of the bullets would start to slide out of the casings. Due to this, the cylindar would not rotate. I would have to open up and eject the rounds just to hammer the slugs back into the cases"
