Was any reason given? Plugged tube, perhaps? Double charged reload?

By thge looks I would say bad ammo, look at the shell in the cyl, the primmer is blown out, he says it was 10 year old ammo.

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.

Ahah - knew something was familiar. Saw thread several days ago and had half forgotten.

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! :biggrin:

(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
