It takes me about 15 min to get to Noslers parking lott from my house.... as long as I dont stop at Sportsmans Warehouse (whole sale sports here now) on the way.

Nosler employees have the ability to use the range (balistics test lab) down stairs, and all the data recording equipment, in the ''basement'' wich is to the west of the Custom shop, and almost directly below the production facility, from the way I understand it.

So how, unless someone had a ''hangfire'', then burried the round in a compressed 55gallon bbl of powder then put it in a room with in-adequate vent tube.....
Couldnt happen.
Having built Sportsmans Warehouses all over the western U.S. I can tell you that ANYTIME powder, or firearms are involved there are a NUMBER of hoops to jump thru to even get a signature from an A.T.F official/inspector, and a State Explosives inspector, not to mention that Homeland security is tied in with these agencies now, and all this has to take place PLUS meet local and state building codes and Fire Marshal approval before you can even get a T.C.O. (Temp. Cert. of Occupancy) to even let employees come in the building to stock a store. Then when all the signatures are there you get a final inspection for C. of O. for letting customers in the bldg.
Something aint jiving here. These guys cross thier ''T's'' and dot thier ''I's''. They dont let anyone slide. Ever. From the way ''explosives'' are stored and labled to the building itself.
Im just not buying it. An employees rifle caused the explosion just doesnt cut it.

Re: Nosler plant explosion

I have no more information than what I read on the web but I have seen a bit of explosive effects in buildings.

That one looks like a gas leak explosion to me.

+1. It had to be IMO, caused by something other than powder. A gas leak, and source of ignition is the best possible explination for 2 levels + the roof.
To do that with loading powder would be virtually impossible even under the best circumstances.

+2 that is the first thing that came to my mind. I wonder why they are being so hush-hush? I bet their OSHA fines are gunna hurt.

Re: Nosler plant explosion

I think the reason things are so hush hush is they have alot of government contracts.
