    Found this in my brass bucket, what caused it?

    Found these while sorting through brass I have accumulated over the past 10 years.

    Looks a bit scary.

    Woah, firing out of battery I would guess. Something seriously wrong with that rifle.

    These started showing up all over the place. Just saw two different guns ruptured last week. Basement dwelling gunsmiths putting together substandard rifles exploding 55,000 PSI 6 inches from between the eyes. The good news is they saved a few bucks playing with this third world crap. Please for gods sake get some training y'all!!!!

    That's the new brass coming out from the left to prevent us from making Super Death Missles in our homes.

    Either something was firing out of battery.....

    OR

    Something is way. way, way out of headspace. I wonder if this came from an AR with a barrel extension that came loose.

    I agree and disagree with Trapper Jim. Yes, if you build something yourself, you should use high quality parts to aid in preventing tolerance stacking and out of spec parts.

    However, I don't think it necessary to have a degree or official training to mod or build guns yourself. I am currently building my first NG19 (non-Glock 19). I am using good quality parts from respectable and known companies. I have read and watched a lot to ensure I am doing everything correctly. Other than the difficulty I had with installing the rear sight, everything else has gone smoothly and all the parts are matching up well. Yet, I am not a Glock certified armorer.

    Once upon a time at a shooting range far far away...

    I'd put together some 125 grain 7.92x57 loads for a FN49 specifically for ack-ack at jack rabbits.
    The goal was low recoil shooting at fast moving jacks.
    So the plan was start low and add powder until the action reliably functioned.

    What actually happened was that the action ejected the spent case, grabbed the next one... but the recoil was insufficient to cock the hammer.
    And the three loaded rounds ripped off with a pretty darn good group at 50 yards but the brass wasn't making it all the way into the chamber.
    The brass in the picture kinda reminds me of that. So maybe it was a load problem rather than a rifle problem.

    I’ve seen this happen with open bolt weapons.
