    That's not what I expected. But, I'm glad it was.

    Something tells me there may be a learning oppotunity here for the rest of us?

    Hmm?

    I've read about it but never seen it happen. I guess the lessons are: check, check and check again. And that primer alone is not enough.

    I had it happen to me recently with a .45 Colt load. The primer only pushed the 300 grain bullet into the forcing cone, locking the revolver up. It was a nerve testing experience tapping the bullet back into the cylinder/case with a mallet and dowel since I was so sure that there was a powder charge in there... So, in addition to triple-checking, I'm also going to slow my pace a bit, no matter how familiar the loading is to me. After all, I'm a hand-loader, not an ammo factory.

    :(

    Yep, this happened to be Colt 45 also. It was just a 200gr cast bullet though. I just drilled a hole through it big enough for a needle-nose pliers and pulled it out.
