Holy crap! Now I'll be giving mine a few hesitant glances.
It's amazing this guy's head is intact.

Damn... spent the last however long, reading the analysis of other readers. Lots of interesting possibilities but the highest probable cause seem to be the reloads.

At least the OP is relatively okay, and SA is going to take the rifle and ammunition in for analysis. I'm very eager to find out what they learn.

Goes Kaboom on the first shot no less.

As one guy pointed out the brass from the one that blew up is different from the others he loaded. That blows though and is very scary!

Yeah, I'm going to be keeping an eye on that thread to see what happens.

I have a feeling it's going to be a mess similar to my hit-and-run where nobody wants anything to do with it and he winds up taking care of things himself.

I think it's uncool so many people bagging on him about using reloads. Everyone but the rich use reloads, and it's only in the manual *not* to use reloads as a legal CYA for the manufacturer, not because it's bad practice.

Now, buying reloads of an unknown origin, even if it's from your favorite fun store...that's a different issue.
