Post a back story or we're going to assume this is simply another case of reloading natural selection at work.

LMAO. That's perfect. I just had a belly laugh. I'm in there trying to change the pics from .pdf files. They came to me in an e-mail. I don't know who did it or the entire story or from where it originated.

Oh! Those pictures.

I bet they have been posted here on THR 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years.

S&W 629 that was double charged/loaded with a hot "Ruger" only load... it's been around for a long while now.

I believe I've seen this pictures circulated before. Different stories popped up ranging from "my brother did this..." and "look at this guy" which neither story provided information to be "cautionary" to any THR folks.

These photos have been recycled and regurgitated for nearly a year.
Here's just one of the many other threads http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1143057

I'll refrain from telling you where to put that comment krochus.

I thought a few photos would be a good distraction for a Monday.

Snark aside without information you shouldn't try to pass off pics of an incident as though you know what happened when you DON'T.

For all you know the Kboom in question could have been the result of a bad factory load, poor metallurgy, an intentional destructive test or any other number of things aside from sloppy handloading practices.

Here's a tip The entire worldwide firearms community gets the same FW:'ed emails you do. You're not getting special inside information if it comes to you in a forwarded attachment.

Now go take your pills man.

Kids, I'll turn this car around right now!;)

Seriously though, don't post pics to reloading (especially about catastrophic failure) when you have no idea about the source of the pics or cause of the failure.

Seriously though, don't post pics to reloading (especially about catastrophic failure) when you have no idea about the source of the pics or cause of the failure. Why exactly?

IF I had fixed the pics and IF I had followed them up with a question, something like "what could have caused this" would it be appropriate then. Still no knowledge of the source of the photo.

Always a few of you preachers that would prefer to impose you're personal agendas on the forum rather than have a conversation relevant to the original post? Why not just let the moderators moderate? From what I have seen they do a killer job at it. Why not turn a post like that into a "what not to do" thread or share a personal experience seeing or hearing of a similar catastrophic failures?

A question about what could cause it would be a good inquiry. At the end of the day, these pics have no known or documented relationship to reloading per-se and additionally no connection to any common mistake made during reloading. I guess I read your thread title to mean that we have to concentrate whenever we're reloading (not be distracted). True enough. But the pics don't demonstrate that. All they show is a blowed-up gun.

ETA: hearing of a similar catastrophic failures?
This is exactly what I would prefer NOT to read about. I'm not speaking for anyone else, but I hate to have to sort through all the "I heard about" crap to get to the real data. If it happened to you? Fine. Write about it. If you "heard about it"? Then some of us would prefer not to read about it. I "heard" you can use mag. primers any time you want. I "heard" that you can load 38spl cases to 357 power. I "heard" those pics were from a double-charge. See what I mean?

Zero nutritional value for the Reloading Forum.

Maybe ask the mods to move it to General Discussion since it has nothing to do with reloading?

Because the Mods are overworked and underpaid - and despite the awesome job they do, it's up to ALL of us to keep things on-track around here. That's why all the posts on this board have the little "report post" icon. While your attitude in response to some of the posts here hasn't been the best, some of those other commenters should have used that icon if they had a problem with this post, rather than dealing with it in this thread.

I have seen those pictures before. It looks like someone loaded that pistol with C4. We are missing the guy/gal's face picture post explosion.
