Too much pressure?

Discussion in 'Reloading' started by dalegates, Feb 20, 2012.

  1. Hi, guys - a realoading "newbie" here. I am assuming the attached pic of my 500 S & W case is an indication that I need to tone it down? Notice the line above the case head.

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!

    What you are seeing is an incipient case head separation. If you enjoy an exciting life please set up your video camera and start a You Tube account before you fire it. Us old people need the entertainment.

    You would be wise to not only toss that piece of brass but check all your other brass for signs of separation from inside the case.

    May also be time to reconsider your load.


  4. Will do, thanks.
  5. Who would even want to load a 500 S&W hot.

    Pass the Trail Boss for me.

    Was that a threat or a promise? :rofl:
  11. IF that is an incipiant head sep, you should be able to see it in the big 500 case as an internal crack. A wire bent & scraped on the inside will also tell you.

    :wow: Someone bout to get a beat down!

  13. I'll do that. Thanks for a helpful reply, devoid of any "tood".
  14. I sincerely hope that "someone" would be me. I'll do the team a favor and volunteer myself to be the plaything for those gals in the picture.
  15. It's a US.GOV picture for anti Drug abuse of some sort. Perhaps if the girls where uglier it would be more effective. That picture just makes you want to stare at them and go hmmm, If only I was younger.

    Good lord, we need to get you a date, Stevie.
  17. Wow, this is nice - we're gone from a discussion of pressure to a suggestion of inappropriate contact with teenagers in 15 posts...

    Hell, it took longer than usual... I fear we're getting old. :fred:

    Dalegates, welcome to the forum. You'll find that our little band of crazies tend to answer questions in a somewhat less than conventional manner and then wander off into total obscurity.

    Keeps the moderator on his toes. :whistling:

  20. I did some 44 mag like that once. The entire head of the case was embossed with the machine marks on the frame around the firng pin hole and the primer flowed so much it looked like a graduation cap when I deprimed. The Blackhawk held it together but I back off a few 10ths on the H110.

    It looks like a clothing advertisement.

    Does anyone NOT think the one on the right would win?
