Not sure exactly, but somewhere over a K. No mishaps other that strange reports and SD all over the place it was used for steel gongs only so accuracy was not important. Some did not like to chamber in my 700 or FN Spr. Guess I was lucky.
Yes, I checked every rnd in a Sheridan before deploying and failure rate was over 30%. I do this check with all ammo as a safety measure.
There was such a mish mash of headstamps that I decided early on that the brass was going to get junked after firing anyway.
