Incomplete burn, factory ammo

I decided to post this here since most folks on this forum are well versed in the art of ammo making.

Had a Remington Ultimate Defense 45 acp round today not fully burn. Remington Ultimate defense is my SD ammo in all my SD guns and my wife's guns. I have done extensive testing and the golden saber is the best feeding bullet there is....I have posted threads on this and spent thousands of dollars proving it to myself. Basically, if it wont feed golden Sabres, it wont feed any hollow points.

Anyway, today while shooting my HK 45, i had a round that did not fully burn. The bullet cleared the barrel, but it was not powerful enough to pus the slide back and eject. I could feel something went wrong so i dropped the mag, extrated the case and checked for squib.

Inside the case i could see unburned powder. I have shot thousands of Remington Golden Sabre or ultimate defense rounds and never had an issue until this one. I have had some cheap target ammo squib before like wolf and blazer (once in my 9mm makarov, once in a glock 19)

Also once had some kind of oil residue in some .223 ammo causing hangfires where i could hear the hammer hit the firing pin, then a split second later the gun went off or they completely failed to fire.

I guess thats why you do malfunction drills.
