    Hi Point will want to see your gun!
    Be honest with them if you were shooting reloads, you won't be the 1st person!
    Hi Point wouldn't sell you a barrel even if you were to pay for it!
    Call as close to 8:00 am as possible. Monday's are not good days to call?

    No, reloads, Monarch. Been using this brand for quite
    a while and never had an issue till now. Had a dud in the
    barrel and did not know it,nor did I have a spent case come
    out,because I then would have known not to pull on the trigger
    again.
    You live and learn. I got away using cheap ammo for a.long
    time.Luckily. it didn't hurt my handsome looks and my
    luxurious hair.

    LOL. Did you do the face pat down after it happened, to make sure everything is still in the right place?

    Name brand and cost have nothing to do with it. Every single production method is going to make mistakes, from hand loading to fully automated mass production, something is going to go wrong, eventually.

    There have been duds in every ammo ever made, the trick is feeling it, realizing something is wrong, and not popping Off that next shot. Easier said than done.:p

    Glad you weren't hurt. Second on calling the factory and sending it in, they'll fix it up and replace any internals as needed as well.

    If you had a dud that did not go off, how did a new round get chambered?
    If the round did not eject, and the shell was still in the chamber, there is no way another round could have even loaded. If you had a squib (light load) that did not cycle the action, how did another round get chambered?

    If you indeed had a squib round, and you manually cycled the action and ejected a spent case but did not hear it go off... you should have immediately checked the barrel for an obstruction.

    Something sounds "amiss" with your story as written.

    What he said. ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
    Seems to me it was a squib and you never noticed the difference in sound nor feel of the gun.
    Wouldn't a been doing a rapid fire mag dump were we??

    I had a "sqib" the other day. Turned out it was a 9 shot out of a 40 barrel! Miss loaded a mag with one tiny round.......:eek:

    He said dud, probably because he didn't know what a squib was.

    Even ARs and M16's have had squibs that cycle the action.

    No need to get all Talonesque on the guy yet.;)

    Rapid fire is where squibs will really kill you. A few years ago I started using a progressive press and was doing some plinker .380 loads for a pocket pistol. Probably a dozen out of a couple hundred, no powder charge. I found out during rapid fire and barely stopped a trigger pull after a bullet lodged in the barrel so avoided catastrophe. But all the bad loads were mixed in with all the good ones and the combo is light enough that on average I couldn't really find them using a scale. So it's been very slow firings just clearing brass. Every now and then field strip and tap the bullet out with a dowel and back to another string. I think I still have about a box to clear.

    Except according to the OP a 'spent case' did not eject; which means that the action never cycled. Ergo, one could correctly assume that there would have been no way for the next round to chamber, as the previous round had not cycled the action and ejected the spent casing. ;)
