    The story was a roommate found a cartridge on the floor of his closet and shot it in the owners rifle without his permission. The owner wasn't happy and was having the "friend" pay for everything luckily.

    It is amazing that the case did not fail and rupture gases into the idiots face.

    Think the case is reloadable??

    Ahhh a little time in the tumbler and I think that case is good to go for another 5 reloads.

    That video has been bouncing around for a while now. It was taken in Finland whilst a range of rifles were tested. They were all 308 with the same bullets - 168gr.

    The build quality of the average remington/browning/winchester (excluding the older winchesters) is not highly regarded here in Europe.

    After watching this video, I have decided to quit letting the Finnish weld the barrels on my Remingtons closed.
