WOW, that's interesting. Thanks for sharing.FEENIX,
I will go a step further and say ignorance is a factor, also. When I was a new loader I read about cream of wheat for forming. I weighed out the powder charge and then weighed out the cream of wheat to fill the case as though it were a bullet, but with no bullet. The brass swelled on the belt .170". That is not .017". Of course the bolt had to be beat open with a rubber hammer. The chamber was bulged a few thousands. What I learned was one doesn't load the cream of wheat and wait a week before one fires it.
