Scary stuff indeed! The owner of the gun should get several lotto tickets.
The pressure must have been enormous.

All that damage with a very light load! I didn't know modern smokeless powders could be made to detonate.

I think it serves to illustrate that 1) it is unlikely a gun will blow up and 2) if it does, it is unlikely you'll get hurt.

Gregsy, without wishing to appear rude, arrogant, and to admonish you that is a very cavalier attitude.
Gentlemen could I please ask someone over there to carry out some research into just what you guys are doing wrong over there?
I have travelled the World and shot in most of the Countries and Continents and I do have to say that blowing up guns seems to be an exclusively American party trick.
If it is of any use in your research may I relate an incident to you?
A friend bought a new Remington Auto from Hull Cartridge Co who used to be the importers.This gun had many problems and broke many parts around the breech and bolt area and mechanismn.Hull were concerned about this and after the 'enth number of guarantee repairs asked him to bring his usual brand of shell with him which happened to be Winchester Blues.
On testing a box of 25, EVERY cartridge was over pressure by a considerable amount, in Hull Cartridge's opinion.Gun was repaired, cartridge brand was changed (not to a Hull brand) and that gun never had another malfunction.
Does anyone know of a gun blowing up using Factory Ammo? Using European loaded Ammo?
We really do need to explain this, before someone gets seriously hurt.
Although I do know personally a few people who are bearing the scars or missing the thumbs or fingers from such incidents.
I do not think the thread on 'shotgunworld' is conveying the seriousness of these incidents. It is not incredulous, it is down right scary.

I agree Salopian, I cannot believe a Perazzi blew up with a normal factory load. They are renowned for being almost bullet proof. Something wrong in that shell.

Salopian you make some very interesting points I no longer use ammunition loaded to SAAMI specs through my guns I much prefer the lower pressure CIP loads and my own low pressure reloads
I don't see the sense in using loads that devolep 10000-11000 PSI when I can be using loads around 8000 PSI for the same velocity

I have that viewpoint as I have read on this BB and others a fair number of rifle and shotgun blowups and I have yet to read of one where the shooter was seriously hurt. I'm sure there are instances, but statistically they seem to be in the minority.

What I read a lot of is 'Oh My God, I could have been killed!" which is not the same as Oh My God I was killed." If that makes me cavalier then I don't care.
