ruined my perfect record:(

I've been reloading extensively for 20 years, tens of thousands of rounds loaded and fired, not one single misfire until today. I had one 9mm cartridge with a little bit too much bulge get by me, just enough of a bulge it locked up the M9 before it went into battery.

It was from a batch of old military 9mm brass that I did have issues with loading 147 grain FMJ in during the worst of the component shortage.

Dang it! At least it was an easy fix, i just released the extractor from the rim of the case with a tiny screwdriver, locked the pistol open and tapped the stuck round out of the chamber.
