Default What would cause a 9mm round not to chamber in a Glock?

Winchester Service Grade ammo. It was only 1 bullet out of 150, but I never experienced this. I couldn't get the gun in battery with this 1 round. Even when I hit the back of the slide to force it, no go.

- Bullet slightly crooked in case
- Case mouth not fully crimped
- Oversize bullet
- Burr on case mouth

If a round does not want to chamber, it is best to eject it rather than try to push it home.
Kabooms suck.
Ammo is cheap, much cheaper than guns, hands, eyes, etcetera.

Just a couple of days ago I had a couple of CCI MiniMag 22lr that simply would not chamber in my Ruger Single Six. The copper coated bullet would simply not go in. Never experienced that before. Those rounds went to the round file.

If the gun had been a semi-auto, it's possible these bullets would have really jammed up in the chamber. Point to ponder for you .22 semi-auto shooters.

I have never had that happen with my G17, but I shoot mostly Federal 115 gr. ammo.

Funny, because I just experienced this in some factory .38’s I had put into a speed loader. Out of the blue during a practice load, one round wouldn’t chamber fully in any chamber in my revolver - just was bulged out enough to be oversized. Would have been lousy had I needed that reload!

Now that you mentioned it, I think I was able to chamber it once by forcing it, but I was scared to pull the trigger and it hasn't been able to fully chamber since.

Guess I'll stick with the other brands that have been reliable. This Aguila seems to be pretty good. Fiocci, Blazer , magtech and S&B have been flawless too.

/\ Good call! /\

I've had all of the above with the WWB 9mm. Not in mass amounts, but enough to be aware and inspect the rounds in adequate light prior to use. I still have quite a bit of this stuff around and will shoot it, but have since been buying Federal.

I'd say about 1 out of every 150 WWB I would deem possibly defective, and not even try to shoot it. Better safe than sorry.

It’s the stuff you can buy at a store at 5pm on a Saturday evening....and still have time to take your wife/girlfriend to dinner, have a couple of drinks, have major sex, get some sleep, and still make it to the Sunday handgun class

Had a winchester 9mm not chamber because it was just a little too long. When I reloaded my other brass and took that one apart I noticed just how long it was.

I'm amazed that a factory round wouldn't chamber in a Glock. Usually a Glock chamber is so large it will feed a trashcan.

I've had issues with Fiocchi ammo in .40 not chambering from time to time. When I put it into the gauge (hundo), I noticed there was a bulge at the bottom, similar to "Glock bulge" just less pronounced. This was new brass and new ammo and it was out of spec.

Check the case with a gauge to see where it sticks. It's just brass that is out of spec. If it chambers, it's safe to fire unless there is a separate issue that is causing the problem, so I won't force cases beyond lightly tapping the back of the slide and I won't shoot in competition anything that hasn't been cause-gauged.

Had the same thing happen. Was also a Winchester 9MM. The case didn't get trimmed short enough. Wouldn't chamber, I didn't know why. Took the round home, measured it and found out case was way too long.

The G19 had mag follower issues causing failure to feed. After replacing all my followers with the new ones glock sent me, I had no more feeding issues.
