    Anything left in the barrel? Also that round looks over crimped. That should not stop it from releasing but if it was a low powder charge that might do it. However I think the case should have split before it deformed the round.

    Just saw his thread so maybe the cause has been found. If not, I'd also be curious about the condition of the barrel and the color of the plastic residue.

    Maybe the bullet got pushed back into the case causing an over pressure issue.

    Defective bullet with a casting cavity in the middle, melting the plastic into the bore, but still had enough of a charge to spread the brass to seat?

    Its a new one thats for sure

    I don't know, but whatever it is, it belongs in a modern art museum. I think the Guggenheim.
