Well not a defensive use but still if it would have been uhh oo
So deer hunting Sunday i shot a large doe with my 300 Win mag hand load dropped over ..
So out of the Blind i fly over to the deer (didnt know i had totally blown the heart out at this time and it was dying twitchs) So deer looked like it was trying to get up ..
So cock the hammer and take a nice two handed stance Pull trigger and Pop then FIZZZZZ which surprising dad heard a ways aways also heard the ...WHAT THE !!!
By this time Deer had passed on total of maybe 10-15 seconds... Open cylinder and look in barrel packed powder turn round and bullet at 1 1/2 inchs in barrel not sure what happened
Bum reload maybe i loaded 100 of these and shot 50 before season for sight in after i fixed the intial problem i then loaded this 100..
Im wondering if the moisture did them in ive carried the gun in the rain 4 times 3times with same rounds but it was under coat
Could it have happened with Factory loads sure had it happen with 44 once same time of year
Ok now the powder was yellowish at the part didnt burn but when removing it and throwing it in the fire it went right up so im at a loss and got 49 more i dont know what to do with..
So now this is first misfire i ever had with Relaods. Not sure if i would have pulled that trigger again if it was a bear as powerful as the 500 is
As said before Crap happens and ya never lknow what can happen i got 250 though my 500 and no problems other than first 35 loads that i did have them totally worked out yet ...
How exciting can it get
