Guys, I just purchased a PMR 30 about a 3 weeks. I was so excited I couldn't wait to get to range. Well, after about 10 rounds into my 2nd mag. Kaboom. Here are the photos. Using receded CCI 40 gr maxi mag ammo
Sent gun to Keltec and asked for explanation. They told me it happens with CCI ammo. They are fixing it and sending it back. It's a shame. This gun will be up for sale. At least I still have my eyes and hands
What is " receded " CCI 40 gr maxi mag ammo" ?
I must say, the occurrences of PMR 30's becoming little grenades is certainly discouraging!! I have a new one that I haven't fired yet. I bought it a few months ago and I'm in Maine. (need I say more?). If things keep going the way they have for the past month, it may be July before it gets above 30 degrees. I also bought four extra mags and, perhaps, 5-6 hundred rounds of ammo. The ammo is of different brands and weights.......all made in America.
Has anyone found a speedloader that's gentle on the casings? The subject of casing dents (with PMR ammo) seem to come up in all other Kel Tec forums as something to be avoided. Heck - one of the very cool things about the PMR 30 is having 30 rounds of zippy WMR in the palm of ones hand. But I see many who say they only load their mags to 20 rounds.
BTW, I wanted the tan PMR but won an auction on Gunbroker for the "tungsten" colored model, so.......
Holy crap. I just bought one in FDE yesterday. Ugh
Why would a company say that about CCI when that is what they recommend (CCI 40gr Maxi Mag ) is on my list of ammo to use
If this happens with the ammo they list then they need to RECALL THE COMPLETE BATCH OF THESE THINGS before someone get seriously hurt..... I've shot nothing but Hornady 30gr V-Max and the 45gr Critical Defense ammo since I purchased it 3100 rounds plus so far...I guess we will see about the CCI Maxi Mags I've got 1500 rds on the way
