    I don't know why, but I sprayed beer all over my monitor when I saw that picture. Through my nose.

    Looks like a 650 primer tube kaboom?

    What I find interesting is all the other holes near the embedded primer tube, did it happen more than once?

    What makes you say it is a 650?
    There is not a brass tip on the bottom of the tube.
    If the tube was in the primer tube magazine? The primer tube would not have come out of the magazine.

    After further exanimation of the tube. I would say it was on a single stage press or an RCBS Auto Priming Tool.
    Look on the bottom of the tube where it is shiny. Either that was from the tube going in and out of the primer adaptor on the press, or it is shiny because it was protected from the blast by the primer adaptor.

    You only have one that looks like that. I have one that looks like that too. But I'm not the one who did it

    It must be really depressing to know that you're not savvy enough about loading to even blow up a primer tube. Some explosives expert you are.

    ROOKIE. :fred:

    I've got to ask. How DO you make a primer magazine kaboom like that?

    I've seen several photos like this one with no real explanation as to what caused it.

    I have an XL 650 that I've reloaded a couple thousand rounds of 9mm and about 1000 rounds of .45acp. I just can't see what would cause this, short of and deliberate attempt to make it happen.

    So when I'm done with it, I should ust pop it off, and it goes into its proper storage location?
