Good Rule to follow.I wont reload for anyone and I won't shoot anyone elses reloads.I taught a friend to reload and we still load some together but, we are double checking each other and I taught him to use a powder that if he double charges, it will overflow the case. I also inspect each case before I/we start.He has proved to pretty cautious but, I have 20 years into this hobby and he has just one year in. "OOPS" isn't going to suffice when an accident cost you life,limb, appendage and or your career that you might not be able to perform any longer.Ron
I used to shoot IPSC and there was always some brave person willing to fire a round that was found on the range! For those that don't know IPSC shooters load very HOT to make the compensator on the gun work correctly, if you try shooting one of those out of a stock gun you could end up in the "stupid hurts" category! Good rule of thumb- Don't buy or shoot reloads that you haven't loaded yourself.

I had similar experiences running an indoor range with the rental Beretta 92fs pistols, never tried the newer locking blocks though. The locking blocks,slides,barrels,frames,all cracked at some point with high round counts with remanufactured ammo. The other guns in the case were usually much more durable, especially the Rugers.I also saw a Taurus PT92 have a failure with a customers gun and the remanufatured range ammo from a commercial reloader. They paid to have fixed the customers gun though. I'm not sure how durable Taurus Beretta clones are as I have not shot mine too much. The Beretta 92 design is very reliable but seems not as durable as other guns with high round counts. As for poor quality ammo and/or firing out of battery I have had it happen here and there. In 9x19 I was using some Olympic ammo from Greece in a Llama IX-B and had the same problem as the op but with less damage,kind of funny as most of the other 20 or so 9x19 firearms I own did not have a problem with this ammo.I've also had it happen with some .32acp FN flat nosed ammo in a Bernardelli mod USA, I felt a gunpowder blast on my stomach and the slide locked up with brass exploded in chamber, it was quite scary.Also had it happen with poor quality Armscor .22lr ammo, it is quite unpleasant when the cases give way!
The berettas were ok but the first ones had a flaw in the design of the locking blocks after apx 2000 rounds the locking blocks would start cracking and jam the weapon.It was so bad I would carry a handfull of the extra blocks in my pocket when going to the range.They fixed the problem later by radiousing the corners but in the navy it took a long time to phase out the old ones.And I will only shoot someone elses reloads if I know the persons practices when reloading IE watching them for a while or knowing them a long time.I feel the same way about going shooting with someone picky about who im around when things go boom.
