Over the last couple of years I have gone thru over 6,000 rounds of Talon Tracer and maybe 1,000 rounds of the M2 Ball. All have been good except for a small batch of LC72 tracer. Out of 800 rounds I ran into a unknown amount of these rounds that were not crimped. After experiencing 4 misfires and 1 squib, I decided to check the ammo out further. I don't know what the lot number was, but it was dated 72. I had linked this ammo up a while back and didn't notice the crimping problem. I re-crimped (with my Dillion 550b) all of the remainder of these rounds and they fired correctly. I also found a couple of crushed cases in this batch. Where it looked like the machine that Talon was using using to re-install the bullet, was out of adjustment and literally crushed the case. It wouldn't fit in a case gage and obviously would not chamber.

Other than these few exceptions, Talon has been ok.
