  • My Question to you after watching this video the first time was, "Did you pack your own rounds or did someone make them for you?" My Question went unanswered... You fired three rounds; First round seemed normal; Second round(a little more hotter); Third round(a little more explosive). So I did some research... what could have done this? Hey GOOGLE (you know that little speak into the phone feature) what is the most flammable substance on EARTH?" Here was my second search, "Hey Google what is the most explosive substance on EARTH?". HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF DOING THE SAME?

  • You need to own this severe error in judgment. "rare, very old, no way to ever know what has happened over time"(to the ammo) and it wasn't your fault. Extreme bad judgment is clear, the question is, is it a genetic flaw or a "yall watch this" manly man stupid judgment. No body in their right mind should chamber that round in anything. 3 tour combat vet retired, FF/EMT retired. I am surprised you haven't put on SAPI plates and had somebody shoot you with a high power round- but I would bet you have thought of it!

    David HalopoffDavid HalopoffTimme sedan
  • Get a scale (0.001) and weigh your big loads. Find the average and use a bullet puller to remove excess powder. The round that got ya had more than 1.5x the correct powder load. 3 or 4 grains variance is fine. 60 grains, uh uhh. That's a no go.

I would give your dad two thumbs up for keeping his cool and helping you get to the hospital but under the circumstances I would say one thumb up and one thumb in might be more fitting. Seriously though God Bless you and your family!

But hell you been lucky, massive credits to your dad and your proper training, anyone ever use guns should have such proper background or just watch what can go wrong.

  • Sometimes old rounds have been jostled around to the point the powder is broken up. The burn rate goes up with finer granules and increases pressure.

  • I'm going to through in my two cents worth in. I am a retired US Army Chief Warrant Officer Three, (CW3). I have been around many .50 BMG Caliber weapons like the M2, M85 and sub caliber devices that are designed to fire .50 BMG rounds through Main Guns on tanks for training purposes. The ones that I am more familiar with were bolt action. Sometime in 2004 I got into a conversation with a manufacturer concerning S.L.A.P. Rounds that were acting irregularly. His complaint was that the rounds being fired through the barrel of his sub caliber training device were all over the target and not grouping like they should. He was not having any trouble with Ball or AP rounds just the S.L,.A.P rounds. Watching the footage of the S.L.A.P. rounds reminded me of this conversation. I also heard through my sources at APG's Ordnance Center & School that the troops in the field were also experiencing lack of accuracy. I did not hear of any BMG's failing catastrophically. I believe that the problem is in the SLAP round and not the gun.

  • Glad you lived, I can't imagine the fear your dad had seeing that. Moral of the story, always check your ammo, I had my 270 blowback and pepper my eye and cheek with burning powder, no safety glasses. But the shock of the incident really had me gun shy for a few months.

    Eric JueEric Jue5 timmar sedan
    • I should note the 270 win. Malfunction I experienced was 100% due to buying reloaded rounds from a friend who bought them from another friend, If I had weighed the round I probably would have seen it was double loaded.
