Was shooting last week with my S&W M&P 22 handgun. Ammo was Remington 22LR hollow points(from a "Bucket of Bullets" I purchased several months ago). After approx 175 rounds downrange, when I pulled the trigger, it sort of went bang. However, I also felt some of the products of combustion hit me in the face and smoke coming out of the rear of my slide. Clearly something had gone wrong. Retrieved the spent shell which is pictured below. I immediately field stripped and inspected the gun. No apparent damage. Shot about 30 rounds of a different brand afterwards with no issues. Then called it a night. Btw, good thing I was wearing my safety glasses over my prescription eyeglasses. Any idea what may have caused this? I assume bad ammo. Or, could it have been some sort of missfeed on the part of the gun? Appreciate any feedback.
