Re: Case exploded today !!
Ouch!! Lucky you didn't get hurt. Guess I'll start wearing glasses! Anyway, it looks like you have a fairly developed start of high pressure with good headspace, or the case probably would have ruptured around the head, not along. The primers look cratered, but not horrible. I'd try shooting Winchester stuff as their brass is thinner, and see what the primer looks like, otherwise try shooting a slightly lighter bullet or one with less bearing surface. Maybe you can reduce the pressure and still shoot factory, although if you handload your accuracy will increase.
