This is a warning to all re loaders. I guess it should be told.
I started re loading in Aug. 09. In that time until yesterday I found one round that I missed putting the powder in. When I fired that first one, I heard the primer go off. It sounded like a loud cap but no BOOM. So I quit and checked the barrel. I knew what happened, then. Reason, excuse or what ever, is, I had a few friends over and was talking as I was re loading. DUMB MOVE I learned.
Yesterday I was shooting when I had my second bad load. The thing is I did not hear the loud cap go off as you can hear in the vid. The first time I was using CCI primers, this time I am using Winchester primers. Not sure if that makes a difference, yet. But I will find out. I change primer brands with every new bottle of powder. That way I know which ones need to be shot first. (CCi primers are chrome and Winchester are brass) LUCKY for me the Winchester primer did not send the bullet down the barrel far enough for the next round to seat in the barrel for the slide to close all the way. That saved my ass, as you also see in the vid. I don't screw up often, again, not my first word choice, but when I do screw up, I do it big time. ((This goes here))

Clicky.

Mr Hobbles, I am sure glad you did not get injured due to a bad reload. I don't reload my ammo but that problem may also happen to factory loads. I have not heard very much talk about them in several years (think they are called squibs, where there is no big boom but the next shot damages the gun and maybe the shooter.) Again glad you are Ok.
