WTF!??? (version .40)


"pop" is incorrect for the operation.

Cartridge looks a little strange in the pic below, no?

I'm just glad this was on the range, rather than a more "social" application.

I think I need to write a letter to Mr. Manufacturer...

Time to start reloading! BTW, that Napoleon is farooking sweet. I need one badly.

Ayuh- been reloading for thutty years, but I still occasionally buy some factory fodder.
But you can bet your arse that handloads will be in service for any social occasion, nanny state issues about same be damned.

Thanks for dropping by...

I can't exactly see what the story with that one is.

Is that the primer seated too deep....or is there no primer and no flash-hole???

Who made the round, if ya don't mind me asking?

There is no flash hole in the case. The primer ignited & just popped out of the case, fluging up everything.
It has a R-P headstamp.

Remington Green Box UMC?

Actually, not sure. I shoot a lot of "loose" ammo, so I'm not sure of which type of R-P ammo it is. It does look like plinkin' ammo though- FMJTC.
