    The first pic is cool but I am calling foul. I think it's been photoshopped.

    Where is the shell? And the slide hasn't moved. And look at the hands. No tension, in fact, his wrist looks like it's being pulled down from the weight of the gun.

    Just my 2 pennies and I owe someone change.

    Chris,

    Don't know what to say about your picture, other than WOW!!!

    It always surprises me just how much gas comes out of the front of the cylinder.

    I don't know about a "bad" handload! A friend has a DE .50 AE, and has similar experiences. Really kinda cool, you get the same "dragon's tail"(spiralling, corkscrew, flame) that a 5 inch naval gun has. He's set a target on fire at 15 yards, before.........
