Supposedly an 84 year old man did this by only seating the ball 8" down the bore Suspect To be truthful, I think it was smokeless or possibly a double load with one halfway down the bore.

Ouch! I see blood on his hat. How bad was he hurt?

Just used the short starter, and forgot the rest huh? I've come close to doing that at the range when I was distracted by others asking me questions. One of the reasons I found a private range with nobody there but me.

Damn! Shocked

I just finished shooting my TC Hawken when I pulled up this thread. I hope he's okay. Makes one think, and not become complacent with firearms.

Looking the bright side, he has a pile of kindling for the wood stove. Twisted Evil
