joelhilgy Posted January 5, 2007 Share Posted January 5, 2007 First loading session in a long time and was about 120 rounds into it. Using an xl 650 w/case feeder and being very anal about everything, just cleaned and lubed the 650, weighing 10 throws to see accuracy of charge, making sure powder is not compacted, watching for anything not normal. Then a load looked to full so took the shell out and dumped it to weigh and found a good amount of cleaning media. I am not sure how this would have happened. Hopefully picture is veiwable. One of the loads next to it showed one granule of media. There was some cleaning media in the casefeed hopper, I have cleared that out The load is .40 Cal, 180 Star enclosed base FP, 4.7 Grains of Titegroup, being loaded to ~1.203. So has anyone had this happen? How dangerous would that load have been if it had been fired? Should I pull all the loads? How do I prevent it from happening? Thanks for any advice, this kind of thing takes the fun out of loading for me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
