    The powder blew out through the rear of the round, between the case and primer, shooting back from the rear of a 1911.
    Quite unpleasant.

    Always wear eye protection.

    So the primer pocket was already stretched when loaded? Had this happen to me on a 300 win mag case once.... it sucked, primer blew out.

    Wow, hope you are alright, Ferg. Did the shock make all your hairs stand on end? My neck hairs would be itchy.

    I'll get it posted.
    Nothing too dramatic, but the smell lingered in my nose for a few hours after that.
    Gag.

    Lawman, +p reload.
