That's a strange thing to happen , without some damage to the hull before it was shot , my only guess would be some of the wad was folded into
You hunt waterfowl with cut shells? Wow.
I’ve had that happen when I reused hulls one too many times. Active hulls mostly.
good right crimps, and a really slow magnum load seems to separate them. I think I was using a blue dot load last time it happened.
CLEAR you barrel. That lost half of hull could lodge halfway down the barrel.
Neat picture. Cool clouds you caught on camera.
That pic is a great shot.
It reminds me of loading shells with bluedot and using the 1st & 2nd edition of the old mec recipes. Cracking open my Citori and two brass stubs pop out. I gave up reading for a few years because of it.
How many times did mec refine their recipes to get yhem down to safe levels?
I had it happen to one of my deer slug handloads. Trying to get one more load out of it
I've seen 2-3 factory steel shells do that in my hunting buddies autoloaders over the years while duck hunting. On two of those times the hull stuck in the forcing cone, but I had a breakdown rod in my blind bag so we knocked it out.
I had it happen two years ago with one of my very first Hevi shot reloads using blue dot powder. Hull cleared completely but it rattled my confidence in the shells the rest of the morning. Hulls were FGM once fired (supposedly) from BPI. Were a lot of older looking hulls in the batch, mix of smooth and ribbed.
Had that happen with 20ga BPI "invincible" itx13 load. Once fired cheddite herters hull. I think it was way overpressure, 42gr or such, I am now down to 35gr and still getting over 1500fps... due to trying to get that hull out of my kid's gun, I now carry a breakdown cleaning rod in my blind bucket.
