Is there a legal reason why ammunition manufacturers are not liable in these cases where defective ammunition destroys a weapon? I would think they would at least be liable for damages to weapon and person.

I don't know but who do you hold to the fire? Was it the primer? The powder? The assembly process? Why should the ammo plant pay up if the primer company put out a bad primer or two? You can't know it till you drop the hammer.

On the other hand this is known to be shitty stuff and selling it seems to be courting disaster. I know plenty of people are getting through a case here and there with no problems but there are more reported issues than with other quality ammo. I'll not be buying since I don't intend to sort every round. I reload anything I want to spend that much time with.
