They fixed the problem
Review by TominCA. (Posted on 11/23/16)
This is a follow up to my previous (10/31/2016) review. I bought some interceptor ARX and found that about 10% did not have any powder in them. I called Lucky Gunner - who intern put me in contact with the manufacturer - They were real concerned, recalled the stuff that was out and had guys with white gloves weigh every cartridge. The VP was real upset that this could happen and gave me a big explanation as to how it must have happened, none of which I understood. Anyhow, it is unfortunate that it happened, but they really tried hard to fix it and even sent me a box of ammo in replacement. Will I buy this stuff again? Yep - its good ammo and the manufacturer was upset enough so I have confidence that they care about their customers and will do better in the future.

WARNING 10% did not have any gunpowder! Lot 57856621
Review by TominCA. (Posted on 10/31/16)
I shot the Ruger version of this in my 380 and liked it, so I got 200 rounds of Polycase interceptor. At the range at round 7 my S&W 66 Combat Magnum went "click" and locked up. Nothing would move. At first I thought the hammer block had broken and jammed the action. When I got home I found that the "click" was really an ARX bullet caught between the cylinder and barrel. The primer had fired but I did not hear it with ear protection. Luckily the gun locked up or I would have likely sent another down the barrel behind it and bulged the barrel. (Always check when you don't get a fire!)
I went home and pounded the bullet back down and opened the cylinder. I then weighed the components at 149.7 on my powder scale. Most other cartridges weighed between 155 and 156 grains. I found 17 more at around 150 grains out of the remaining 192 cartridges. Two were about 154. The rest over 155. I cut three of the 150 grain cartridges open and they had no powder whatsoever. Weighing the components from the empty rounds and comparing this weight to the heavy (loaded) rounds I can reasonably assume that there was a .5 to .7 variation in the powder charges. The components vary by .3 grains.
There were at least 19 "duds" in my lot of 200 and two more that were likely undercharged ( i stopped cutting them open) The remaining 178 had a variation in powder charge of about 10% by calculation.
This is pretty bad quality control for any ammo and really awful for stuff that is sold 20 to a box as defense ammo. I wonder; if they can undercharge it - can they also overcharge it? A blown gun is a lot more dangerous than a jammed cylinder or bulged barrel.
