    Was any reason given? Plugged tube, perhaps? Double charged reload?
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    Gotta be bad to blow a GP!!! I haven't caught up on the supposed reason but has every appearance of a double/super hot charge of fast powder.

    A squib with lodged bullet followed by second shot would usually cause just barrel bulge damage and not a rupture of chamber wall.

    For those wanting to see a further selection of revo blow-up pics go browse the THR thread -

    Thanks Bruce

    It is tough to blow up a Ruger cylinder.
    That is some tough Stainless steel that Ruger uses.
    Sure enough did though.

    A double charge can kill any gun... or shooter. The guy is lucky.

    Compare that to a S&W or Taurus, though! Hammer it back in-round and Tig it shut, the other 5 are good to go!

    (Yes, I am kidding, but only Ruger would hold together that well after something that catastrophic)

    What's the big deal? The other 5 chambers still work. :chairshot
