    While bear hunting yesterday my buddy and I stopped at a couple gravel pits in search of brass. While picking up some .40 I noticed one of them looked funny. It was a 9mm necked out to a .40. Just a reminder to be mindful and shoot one caliber at a time. Also had a friend who put a .270 shell in a 7 mag.
    Both black Remington 700's, easy to do. That's why I only shoot 30-06.

    He was at an outdoor shooting area unless there's indoor gravel pits so the thread isn't completely out of place.

    Yes, it's an outdoors shooting forum, if everyone picked up their own BS while out at these areas it would have been a non starter right out of the gate, but it ain't. The point should be taken, be careful! And in case it wasn't mentioned,,, slobs suck.

    I actually had a .40 run through a .45 once, buddy loaded the mag and handed it to me. None of us owned a .40 so its still a mystery where it came from, luckily no one got hurt and the firearm survived without a problem.

    I once picked up a 300 Win Mag case that had obviously been fired in a 300 Weatherby Mag chamber. I wonder how many were shot until it was figured out?

    That probably didn't work out so well...

    The Winchester case in the Weatherby rifle didn't leave much neck.

    Sounds like a 357 sig round.

    I don't think 357 sig rounds look like bells. They start out a .40 and narrow to a 9. This case is the opposite.

    Okay, my bad. Before my first cup of coffee kicked in, I read it bass ackwards - that it was a .40 necked to a 9. Since it's the opposite, maybe someone had some realllly hot reloads!

    Ok, let me explain so the mouth breathers will understand. Some guy loaded a 9mm round in a .40 gun. Got it!

    I did that once. My 9mm pile got a little too close to my .40 pile and a 9mm got loaded into a mag for a glock 23. Very low report, almost no recoil, I thought it was a squib at first. Case looked kinda cool afterwards though. I kept it as a reminder to be more careful.
