    I had a Pro29 G33-MY Cato upon ignition.
    Sustainer motor, so only the delay and top grain were recovered. Both completely unburned.

    Looks just like the Pro38 1G problem. And Wildman says he knows of 3 others off hand.

    Date code APR 30 2018
    Mess, Warranty, and CTI feedback sent.

    Sustainer this time - damage is much worse.

    Sorry to hear that. Did you trim the pellet or trust luck?

    The pellet trimming was supposed to be a 38mm thing. The G115 in the booster had the QC sticker.

    My G33 cato had a date code of Nov 22, 2018. Sounds like an endemic problem...

    Oop, reading comprehension fail on my part.

    Maybe some of the hot pellet material made it into the 29s

    Chuck,

    I am so sorry for your loss . . . Such a great model !

    On the lighter side, I am going to briefly make this observation about the "Northern Flames" coming out of Canada's Cesaroni . . .

    I hereby dub the PRO 38 1G problem the "Revenge of the McKenzie Brothers" . . . LOL !

    Charles or Chas, please. Chuck was a long time in my past, and I didn't like him much.

    I just figured out that my printed fincan is 17mm too short. Whoops.

    Guess I'll have to print another.
