In my opinion, bullets used in semi-autos should have a slightly smaller diameter at the point where it mates with the casing (because in semi-autos, the bullet gets slammed into the feed ramp, and the design shouldn't depend on a crimp to keep the bullet from sliding back into the casing). I suspect this problem occurs fairly often (but usually not as extreme as in this example).
