I just watched Kentucky fire Arms video about his 50 cal rifle exploding he explained how it all happen. My insight he use ammo that he did not know how hot it was. And the worst case scenario happen by God’s good grace and quick thinking he is still alive today, the gun exploded in such a way as to do his live a threatening way. Now I suggest that all safety minded people watch this video, now I’m a reloader and have never put in my brass a hot charge because of this very thing a I belive it’s not reasonable to do so. Just like the factory load that are p + p if you gun doesn’t have that stamped on it than don’t use it because if you do the same thing could happen. I always use my reloading books to do my loads they have been very good for me to stay in the window for that powder and bullet weight to get the results I require. So know what ammo you have and what pressures it does, remember stay alert and don’t get hurt.

I think this also goes to show you how much safety is built into most firearms. Without deliberate design of the weapon this could have ended worse. There is only so much that can be done to protect mistakes… think about if every car had to be designed to such that regardless of circumstances the rule was zero casualties. We would have no cars. Its up to owners to assume responsibility for their actions. I totally understand there will be a lemon or flaw somewhere in a product when mass produced. It SHOULD be YOUR responsibility to be sure you are doing your part to keep things safe.

I am sorry this happened but out of hundreds of thousands of round fired is this really a concern? Be responsible. Assay the risk of anything you do. You could die crossing the street. Is the risk worth it to you? Do your part to stay safe. Dont assume others are looking out for you.

The world can be a dangerous place. Liberals will try and use safety as a reason to run your life. It is a sad situation.
