Received this in a email from a friend. Excessive pressure can be dangerous to your health...:wow:
That is horrifying, hope noone got hurt. What is (was) the gun?
Glad that has never happened to me. Hopefully the shooter was not hurt. I would have to think that the shooter was trying loads that were borderline on overpressure?
Well it was a Smith & Wesson, I'm guessin' a 629 (.44 mag)
Looks like a S&W 629 to me
Holy s---. What kind of ammo were they using?
Factory or reloads?
I wouldn't want to be holding that thing when that happened..
I saw this happen once with a Colt Python. Some idiot bought reloading gear to be able to load "hotter than I can get from the factory". He failed to see the wisdom in purchasing a reloading manual and just took .357 mag primed brass and dipped them in a pail of Unique full to the top and seated a 158gr JHP bullet on top of them.
The first round he touched off, the results looked almost exactly like the picture of the 629 in this thread.
That would be why I only shoot my own reloads. I'm sure there was just a weakness in the casting and this guy should sue.:laugh:
Geez what happened? One chamber blew, shattered the cylinder and touched off the round next door by blowing it open?
I'm glad I wasn't holding that. aranoid:
the american way; I screwed something up all by myself, WHO CAN I SUE.
Looks like the wheel gun was out of time... or maybe it was the dreaded lock that cause it:bluelaugh::bluelaugh:
Seriously, I hope the shooter wasn't hurt!
sarchasm - the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.
that bubblegum will buff out
btw it looks staged to me
if the round blew like it looks to have the slug would not still be there
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't be drinking beer while you reload.
Hey Physicguy aren't those the reloads you were going to give me to try?
I have never understood why so many people want a gun that is faster than the next guy's. You cannot see the bullet flying out of the gun. I remember a guy years ago who had a 30-06 rifle and a handgun (don't remember). He would use a pair of pliers, pull the bullet from an 06 case and one handgun case, and pour the handgun powder into the 06 case, crimp it down with the pliers(!), and shoot it! Why he didn't blow his stupid head off I'll never know. I prefer to use ammo and firearms the way they were designed. I think I'll be healthier that way. And, I never have felt the need for a super-dooper high-powered magnum!
Well I figured it would be one less smith with a lock out there
On a side note, H110 makes some scary powerful .44 mag loads. (when used in moderation :thumbup
Who needs a reloading manual.
Have ya seen that Kyber pass vid with kids making ammo?
Git er done.
Impressive carnage, I hope the shooter needs nothing more than a new set of shorts.
Misleading post BTW.
I was fully expecting to see a Glock posted. :laugh:
I do not EVER want that to happen to a gun I'm shooting !!
