    That's a 6 shot revolver and I count 8 squibs. You'd think they would have noticed something was a little hinky after the first 6 rds.

    You realize he (she?) actually shot a full cylinder and reloaded and fired a couple more to accomplish this?....

    I guess the gas could have escaped thru the cylinder, being that it's a revolver.

    I believe there are people stupid enough to do this.

    The other option would be just primers. Regardless, I think it was done on purpose.

    Is it an optical illusion or is that barrel bent slightly downward?

    There's definitely a bulge where the second to the last hit the one in front. Maybe they were .38 Spl loads.

    If they kept shooting, would they start to push out the end like a deer pooping?

    Barrel definitely goes down. I also like the space between the 2nd and third round.....

    I to think there is something fishy going on....

    Interesting, but seems very highly unlikely to me that, using standard .357 loads, you could get 8 shots off without noticing an issue. If it is real, it sure is a one of a kind event.

    There are a number of photos like this out there for various revolvers.

    I remember one years ago for a Dan Wesson.

    These are generally indicative of "squib" loads as noted, so the pressure would not have been great. It might have even been missing powder altogether, primer only (it is enough to move a projectile down the barrel - I have some primer only .22 rimfire loads - very quiet).

    If you've ever had a squib you difinetly know there was something not right, since there was no big bang. I thing it's B. S. Myself

    Only reason they stopped shooting is the gun became unbalanced when the barrel got heavy.

    What a load. I don't believe that this could happen without catastrophic failure.

    Mmm.... I kind of want to find a revolver and see if I can fill the barrel full of copper and lead just so I can cut it apart and have it sit on my desk as a display. I wonder if I pressed the first bullet in with a hydraulic press and a tool steel rod and then fired a few in behind it..... :eek::eek::eek:
