My brothering law mixed up some 308 with his 284's once
I have a friend who sent a 270 win down a 7 RM once, it blew the shoulder open and sent crap out the pressure hole but he was not hurt
I did send my scope Red Hot Varminter 4-16x44 back to Scorpion Optics
last Monday Sept 16, 2019 just how it looks in posted pictures (page 1).
Last Friday Sept 20, 2019 I received brand new scope.
Scope was an amazing scope before I destroyed it.
I now know why, because Scorpion is an amazing Canadian company.
Sorry for the troubles.
There was a guy reference in an article a while back, blew up his gun. What was surmised is that he had just a bit of pistol powder in his measure as he switched to rifle powder. This was just a small enough amount as to not notice as he went to the slower powder.
After he blew up his gun he backtracked to the powder measure. Kinda a strange way to go, just saying, proceed carefully.
I don't shoot/reload pistols so I have no pistol powder.
I'm suspecting my powder throw is inconsistent as you can see from my previous text after I pulled bullets from left over reloads. Inconsistent measures.
I'm thinking after reloading /shooting 3 years of these inconsistant reloads , some as much as 3 grains over Hornady Book maximum gun action / bolt may have developed metal fatigue.
Norm. l don't believe this KABOOM was your fault. But respectfully, You will never know until you SEND THE GUN BACK to Savage..
i very glad no-one was hurt..
I picked up the wrong bottle of powder one day and produced almost the same results. You You must be correct 110% with you materials
Pass this one to the correct people as next time you may have different results to contend with.
Glad to see your doing OK.
The difference in data has to do with testing. Would not the lot of the powder make a difference? What about the firearm used in the testing? I got Loaddata. It's possible to get crazy on top loads for any caliber. Right, I double check with the powder makers web site. The data is not wrong, it's just different. It's up to me work up load without getting my butt blown into the bushes.
