    Wrong case/case failure

    Check your headstamps! I had a loaded 38 super case in my western metal 9mm box chamber and fire in my cx4. Super loud bang and it blew apart my feed ramp, nothing past that though.

    Makes me thinking how many of these stuff is overloaded. Is the gun still ok?
    Mr.Trudeau,you imported thousands of unvetted "m" “refugees”and paid $10M to a terrorist. We are struggling to lead a good life yet we are obligated to pay for this privileged class so that they can eat this country alive from the inside.

    That could have been worse. So this came in a commercial box or did you mix them up yourself. Either way OUCH.
    Smokeless powder is just a passing fad. #1 gun rule,carry one.

    I did not think that a 38 super case would allow the action to close up enough to even allow it to fire. Quite a bit longer than 9mm and it headspaces on the case mouth. Strange stuff. Hope it all works out okay.

    Good to check. Sorry it happened, but thanks for sharing. There's a saying "learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make them all yourself"
