I once had a 222 Rem in a box of 223 Rem. It drops down the barrel enough a 223 behind it "might" tap the primer. Glad you're OK and didn't get hurt from the mix-up.

Thank goodness no. But I did have a new box of Remington .22LR that looked like they went through a meat grinder. And one round of Fiocchi 9MM that had no flash hole which locked the Glock up tight.

About 12-14 years ago we were running into an unusually high number of Federal ammo with upside-down primers.

In high school my bud bought a Black Sabbath album, but the record inside the sleeve was by the Everly Brothers... DrMark

I got a regular fry in my curly fries at Arbys once.

Hey Aimless, Does this count? In a 50 round box of UMC Remington .45 ACP ammo, I once found a cartridge with the bullet seated UPSIDE DOWN! Does this mean that if I had fired that round that the bullet would have traveled out through the back of the slide towards ME? This has never happened with any of my reloads.

What may have happened is someone was showing soemone the difference between the two and put the rounds back in the wrong boxes. They should have noticed that one was shorter/longer than the rest. I've seen this with ammo from CTD. My friend ordered 223 and two of the five boxes were 222 in 223 boxes. Never attempt to shoot Weatherby Mag in a Remington Mag. The case is longer and can cause problems.

I found a .35 Remington round in a sealed box (from a sealed case) of Remington .308 Win 168 gr BTHPM Express ammo which I purchased a little over a year ago from Keisler's. I was a bit surprised as I tried to load my SR-25's magazine... I suspect a disgruntled Remington employee had some fun at a customer's (mine) expense.

The closest I've had was .45 acp CCI Lawman ammo. I opened the box and right away I saw one of the rounds, had half of a primer! It looked like someone took metal snips to it. Cut clean in half. The brass was fine, but half the primer was gone.
