    Yikes, could be a scary round to have malfunction in your gun. I sure hope someone isn’t out to sabotage Hornady production? I recently wrote them about some 22WMR NTX rounds that were bulging after shooting at the case rim base. My cylinder in my revolver wouldn’t even spin because they bulged so much. They requested I return them prepaid for inspection. I haven’t heard back from them yet. They just received the returned product on Tuesday the 21st.
