Looks like the ol' 'wrong guage' and 'obstructed bore' problem. Although this may resemble classical Darwinism in operation... it is really, really easy to do. Be on your toes when you are at the range and the guys are all swapping guns and magazines willy-nilly. If there is a noob in the mix, the possibility of something like this happening goes through the roof. It happened to me years ago when I spotted one of the kids on the line trying to put a magful of .38 Super into my .45 Colt. The only reason I caught it was that the mag was stainless steel, and at the time all my mags were anodized or blued black. We shut down the line, dropped the curtain - and sorted out our guns and mags and checked our bores.
I have put 41 mags into a 44 mag and fired them - lousy accuracy and split cases, but no damage to the gun, though I wouldn't recommend it as a general practice.ReplyDelete
Back in the late 60s early 70s when they still conducted gun safety classes at school, the 12 gauge after the 20 gauge was really hammered on as a safety issue. If I recall, it was around that time frame or a bit later that they started making the shells in different colors in order to help avoid the pictured damage.
Yes, def color code. I put use red mags with red charging handles, safety selector, etc. for .300aac so nobody will try to swap with .556ReplyDelete
The 300 Blackout round in a 5.56mm AR is a deadly combination and very easy to do.ReplyDelete
Oh, yeah. I only go to the range, rifle or pistol, right when they open and during the week. That's usually when the serious and experienced shooters are there. Much safer than afternoons or weekends from what I've experienced.ReplyDelete
Only fagolians use 300 Barfout. Don't be stupid. Stick with 762x39 in that power range.ReplyDelete
Probably a good policy to post anonymously when you intend to brag to the world about your ignorance.Delete
