    This makes me want to throw away all of my mil surplus ammo. I had a gun blow up in my face once and no where near the damage this guy had.
    I hear ya. It’s all relative too. Even though the BMG holds a lot more powder than most rifles we shoot, the gun is built a lot heavier than those guns. I’m just trying to imagine what it would take to run the pressures that high.

    Just FYI, a SLAP round is a Saboted Light Armor Penetrator, basically a sub caliber penetrator made of tungsten with a polymer sabot around it, delivering much higher velocity than you can normally obtain with a bullet fired from the cartridge.

    More like sabot, a French shoe used to break equipment in the industrial revulsion. And from the looks of it that round he shot was the work of sabotage.

    Yes. Much like the old accelerator rifle rounds. Just not familiar with them. I’m assuming the powder charge is that of, if not less than standard FMJ. There’s nothing about the round itself that should account for the increase in pressure to the extent mentioned. Being a sabot round, I suppose there’s a chance of the round leaving the sabot and possibly entering the barrel wrong and causing an obstruction. It’s too bad the guy hasn’t investigated further. I also can’t imagine any of those being included in the booby loads, as they were limited to munitions meant for the enemy combatants and the rifles they generally use, i.e. 7.62x39. Those loads were reportedly quite successful at taking out the rifle and often times the person shooting it. Nevertheless, I’ve removed them from my want list. I’ll just make do with the old dusty armor piercing incendiary rounds. I don’t mind a little slap now and then when the wife gets frisky but not like that.

    Slapped him? Damn near took his head off!

    yall are right - 3:19 something definitely comes off - almost looks like one of the sabot braces ... thats the only thing which would be that color. If thats the case - the projectile would have been off-center and caused the blowout whilst still leaving the barrel.

    Some interesting takes on the accident and the manufacturer, but still nothing about the flying piece.

    And this one says the SLAP rounds are a bad idea in a rifle with a muzzle brake. They also come with a warning statement to this effect.
    (7:00 mark) Go figure...

    What bolt, I saw the video yesterday and the "bolt" is more of a screw on cap or breech. From after accident picture it looks to me as though those threads were not massive enough, at least for an overload . Knowing nothing about that gun, I am thinking there is a short firing pin in that cap, and a hammer or striker in the butt stock assembly.

    Guy in second video did bring up a couple of possibly good ideas, but really comes across as a nut case.
