Re: Winchester Short Mag

No there really is not a safety issue here. Well, not as long as you keep an eye on your cases and watch for case wall thinning.

Worst case you will have case head seperation and with a belted magnum case, there is very little danger in this as the belt is behind where the case may seperate sealing the gas leak. This is one good design aspect of the belted magnum case!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] About the only one though.

I am not trying to start a panic here with the Encores and belted magnum cases. Just watch the case walls just ahead of the web and you will be fine. When they start thinning, throw them away and start with fresh brass.

You will just have to do this more often then you would with a bolt rifle or something of similiar rigidity is all.
