Who has ever experienced a squib? I was just wondering how common or rare they are. Back in my earlier days, I used to reload for my .45 Colt Blackhawk. I wasn't all that experienced yet and usually only reloaded 50 or 100 rounds at a time with my single stage Rock Chucker. Even though I visually checked and double checked every powder filled case in the bullet tray, somehow I must have missed one. My BIL and I were out at the ranch plinking at cans. I had already shot 12 or 18 rounds, but on the next cylinder full, the third round just went "Poof" instead of "Bang". I knew what had happened and didn't try to fire another round, but I was shaking like a dog, because I could have just as easily cocked the hammer and tried it again. Unfortunately, there was a bullet stuck in the barrel about an inch and a half in from the forcing cone. I tried hammering it out from the muzzle end with a wooden dowel, but that sucker was stuck in there but good. It wouldn't budge. I ended up taking it to McBride's Gun Shop. They got it out, but put a really ugly ding on my front sight somehow. They apologized for that and didn't charge me for removing the bullet. Awful nice of them. So, what are your experiences with squibs and how did you deal with them?
