I am going to give it a 9. It appears to be well attached but it is canted a little to the side.

WOW. How did you do that? I am guessing you are ok, less a pair of jockies. I sure hope so at least.

Actually it's not me. This website has a lot of loading and firing mishaps photos.

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:

No stripper poles in the reloading room! Safety first!

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?

Alright take whats left of your G20, all of you G19's, whatever shrapnel that is you have in the ceiling and go the dump.





I'm sorry, I couldn't resist the reference no matter how unrelated this is.

A lot of people think that the primer is no big deal, and are more worried about the powder. In reality itís just the opposite.
One of the ways is they are filling the primer tube and a primer gets jammed in the tube. So they stick something down the tube and try and knock it out. Knock the tube against the table and they set off a primer that sets off the rest of the primers.
On the 650 press most of the time is when someone tries and force or slams a primer into the case. Or if a primer does not get seated and stays in the primer disk and does not go down the ski ramp and makes it all the way around too the Primer support shim. This locks up the press and the person then tries too force the issue and sets off the primer.
In a lot of cases you only set off the one primer. I have done it 3 times when I first got the press and I was trying too use the same feel as I did when I was loading on the 550 and was kind of you might say forcing the issue and set off the primer. I know one person that has set off the whole primer magazine 3 times. But if ever seen him load you would know why. He loads at about 1000+ rds and hour.
The other issue is using Federal primers that are a little bet more sensitive. Those are what I use. But then I have not had another primer go off in over 100,000 rds load, once I learned what I was doing wrong.
The safe way too do it if you get a primer tube jam is what Dillon says, call them and they well send you a new tube.
If you fell resistance when seating a primer stop do not force the issue.

Darn sure scared the clothes off the little wirey guy in the picture.....

Just came across a badly manufactured primer last night. Kept having a problem loading primers into the tube. After carefully clearing the tube three times, on the fourth attempt to load the tube I discovered the anvil was mis-cut badly and had a sliver of copper color metal protruding from the side of the primer. Just enough to allow the primer to be picked up by the plastic tip but not enough to allow it to slip up inside the metal tube. That was a first...
