    I'd say that was a little on the warm side.

    The cartridge on the top was the hot load that inadvertently ignited the cartridge at the bottom. What amazes me is the bottom cartridge's bullet didn't go down range as well, or at the very least, didnt do additional damage.

    Probably released the pressure when it ruptured the case.

    True. Overheated cases simply rupture; the round doesn't fire.

    I agree this is probably the result of firing lots of hot/overloaded rounds.

    Looks like a fragmentation grenade. Couldn't even image being the one to let the hammer fall on that!

    No kidding!!! My brother in law sent this to me a couple days ago. I think it was one of his buddy's. I asked him via email but he hasn't responded yet.

    (1) firing multiple grossly over-pressure rounds

    (2) firing normal rounds in a gun that has been subjected to above

    (3) firing normal rounds in a gun with a defective cylinder.

    Number three is the least likely cause.

    Wow, Yes I'd say a very hot round. Was that a 357 or 44 Mag? As powerful as those are even at +p I can't imagine having anything hotter!!
