He said a double of fast powder, like Bullseye, will rely do some damage, but not like we see in this thread. He said the case blows out, packs the remaining rounds down into the mag and they are jammed there. The grips are toast. The remaining rounds are actually wrinkled.

Based on his description of a double charge, I'm wondering if this was a triple charge.
Search GT, You will find this has already been done. Squib backed up by a regular load toasted a 1911 and hurt the shooter's hand.
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.

Never cruel or cowardly.
Never give up. Never give in.
