You're welcome.

A friend had a problem with ejecting some shells from a very nice Walther pistol. I took him some CCI shells and they worked just fine. When I received this press release, I sent it to him and those are the kind of shells he was using. They would fire singly and I did notice that they had a rather loud "pop" even in that fine pistol but I did not think about a double load. Fortunately, no discernable damage to him or the gun.

Thanks,
Clark
