You misunderstood Dave... You can buy either virgin cases or once fired cases or perhaps multiple fired cases... My point being how many times were they fired previously??? If only once as you say, then I would expect the cases from the get-go...

I recently fired some 30 Carbine ammo that was at least 40 years old and aside from one or two misfires in a hundred rounds or so, there was no other problems... So, to sum up, could have been case deterioration for whatever reason but I would suspect it was the cases to begin with... Might want to think twice about shooting the balance of them though...
