    It was more than not locking back, it was inducing malfunctions. Again, I donít shoot below 556 except for rarely, so it wasnít worth the time of sending it back since it runs with 556.

    My PSA is the only gun I donít feel bad putting steel ammo through. I donít even like doing it to my Glocks...

I have loaded tons of 9mm in the past, but back when WalMart sold 100rds of WWB for <$10, I didnít bother. Even though itís a lot more than that now, as time got more limited, I started buying 9mm ball by the case instead. Canít see changing that any time soon, unless training ammo shoots up in price for some reason.

    Probably will order another case or two in the near future. And some more cheaper 5.56.
    So you're saying, you don't reload 9mm, but your stockpiling the brass?

    I've got a five-gallon bucket of cleaned 9x19 brass. I really need to order an eight-pound keg of powder, a couple of cases of 124-grain FMJs and another case of small pistol primers and get to work.

    I know a guy that scrapped a conex box of mostly 9mm brass. He literally had a ridiculous amount. It wouldn't sell even at scrap prices.
