Yikes, that's the gun I use to hunt wild boar with every year (S&W 629 - 5")!
Cheese and crackers, got all muddy!!! If the weapon looked that bad I'd hate to see what his pants looked like!!! Damn!!!!!!
Yeah, I've heard of frames cracking and top straps peeling back from overloads, but that's the first time I've ever heard of (or seen pictures of) the cylinder split. I'm also wondering if it wasn't a factory defect in the 629.
Did it cook off the other two rounds in the image or just blast them apart?
Looks to me like it just peeled them, VC. I'm not seeing any burn marks inside the cases.
Speaking from undesired personal experience, the wrong faster burning powder in the amount of proper for a slower burning powder will blow sundry bits off a 30-06, leaving the bolt engaged permanently; cylinder steel is a lot thinner than a rifle chamber.....
Looks like what happens when you use +P+ loaded charges in a weapon not rated for them.
Mausermedic, that's what I was thinking too. Using 20 grains of Bullseye instead of H110 will fuck up your day.
Fuckin ow that dude couldn't of lived!
