One of the student's rifles kaboomed... Freedom Munitions strikes again... rifle suffered a cracked/bent upper, broken to [beeep] BCG, and mag blew out the bottom.

No real injuries to report.

Rear of case blew out leaving the rest of the case in the chamber.

Oofta, I'm glad no one got hurt.

I wish I could say that I haven't done this with a handload mistake before.

Yeah that's a good idea. I almost never hold them by the magazine but one of the times I did I blew up my gun. I was laying prone on a frozen pond. I was lucky it was winter, on my off hand I was wearing mechanix gloves underneath a big pair of mittens made from shearling wool, lots of padding. The magazine with 28 rounds in it was totally ruined and my hand felt like I bare hand slapped a brick wall.

I've heard so many stories about squib loads in Freedom Munitions causing kabooms - I gotta wonder why people still use the stuff. They did file for bankruptcy last year, so I hope there's not much of it left floating around anymore.
