    Not to argue about brand name or bargain ammo quality, as to one Always being better. Have shot factory and handloads for 60 plus years, the things that have sold by the brand name companies over the years in handgun, rifle and shotgun ammo is not always perfect. I let a cartridge collector have a 44 mag round with no primer pocket cut in case, solid bottom. Multiple recalls have been issued over the years from different companies. Some of the best and worst ammo I have shot came from the brand name companies. Same with the bargain ammo. Aguila at one time shot with the premium ammo. Armscor has also had some excellent ammo. Usually the rimfire ammo a company builds says a lot about how well the quality control is maintained. Some total junk ammo has been sold in this country by both brand name and bargain ammo companies. In this case the OP will probably run into hollow point ammo that is under max over all length with large ogive bullets that do not chamber right. Hopefully not in a self defense situation. Ammo loaded to just under max over all length is not uncommon, never has been. Military guns were always spec loose to allow for them to operate in extreme conditions. Match guns to tight spec for extreme accuracy. I have match guns that take custom handloads before a round will chamber. I have some guns that will run with any thing. If you don't like a brand don't shoot it. If it doesnt run in your gun don't buy it. Find something it runs with and shoot that.

    Seeing how Armscor ammo is so highly regarded I would think someone could take a quick measurement and tell me what they get for an AOL on a 115 grain 9mm round.

    I have no calipers to do a precise measurement.

    And, unless they were from the same lot number, would it even be relevant?

    Have you contacted Armscor and told them your issue? They would likely want the suspect ammo that was left back and would likely refund your money or send you another box.

    And, more importantly, have you had a gunsmith check your chamber dimensions as someone else recommended?
