    Did the headstamp of the failed case match the headstamp of the other cases from that same lot of brass?

    Was the brass resized by the vendor?

    Excessive headspace.

    Brass sized excessively. (Shoulder pushed back too far)

    Combination of those two.

    Brass fired multiple times, and maybe sized excessively as well. Not too hard for a case that has been fired multiple times to get in a batch of "once fired".

    Let me know which user account to do away with. (Rule #2 - http://www.thehighroad.org/announcement.php?a=20)

    Could it also be a timing issue due to an overgassed AR rifle? For example, if ejection started while the case is still pressurized and expanded in the chamber.

    Yup RockCreek

    Thanks for all the info guys. I asked the boss if there was any more info he could give me. He did not get to talk to the guy that shot the rounds either.
    I will keep you updated if I find anything out.

    You guys are a great resource keep up the good work.
