    I had a squib in my 50cal M3HB. I couldnt hear it so I thought it was a misfife or a round didn't load.
    So I started to rack the handle repeatedly with no success. The whole time I was ramming a APIT into the rear
    of a stuck bullet and didnt know it. Long story short I eneded up pulling a bullet (in the field) and taping the opening
    and firing it to dislodge the projectile. I think it came out sideways...It worked though.

    That was a round I loaded

    I concur in general.

    However, I do know the reloading talents of two of my uncles and I wouldn't hesitate to shoot their reloads. ...in fact, I've shot a lot of their handloads over the years. (both were responsible in teaching me back when I was about 12yo)

    Strangers, and known folks that I do not personally know their handload skills - hell no!

    It depends whose reloads they are. I would have no problem shooting reloads from the person that taught me how to reloads, none whatsoever.You always have to consider the source. I know people that pick up brass at the range to reload. I wouldn't shoot any load from components I do not know the origin of. There's a limit to how many times cases can be reused. I keep a record of that.

    Got a batch of brass marked once fired. If that was true this happened on the second firing:

    My fault for not taking a few minutes with a sharpened paperclip to check inside the case.
    Pulled the rest and found a couple more potential separations.
