??? I was at Walmart today and grabbed the cheapest box of shells on the shelf as usual for my PT140. The Remington UMC rounds were about 60 bucks for 250 (seemed like a good deal). About halfway through the first fifty I started having problems. Originally I thought i had shattered my firing pin, the hammer would fall, but no BANG. On closer investigation I noticed that a small section of the strike spot on the shell had actually sheared off and was stuck next to my firing pin, so I blew on it and it came right out. This continued to happen through the next 50 i fired periodically. I just wanted to know if anyone had had a similar problem.
