This is what happens when you put too much powder in any round and this was a 50 cal round. :confused:

The article said it was a factory load in a new rifle.

Scary business.

That's why I always weigh my reloads one last time...

A link from alelks link claims that it was the first time the gun was fired a commercial ammo was used...LINK (http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_1_5/1491243_.html).

Don't buy that gun....

A lot of people reload .50 to save money. I'll wager it was overloaded.

Head space issue from factory? That would be my first guess if it was a new rifle with factory ammo.

I did some reading.

The rifle manufacturer has a history of poor construction.

Suspicion is that the rifle's headspace was far in excess.

I can't see the vid but if that is a Vulcan .50, beware, it is probably not the ammo but rather a weapon issue....
