So I had a little mishap shooting reloads today.

Today while out shooting some reloads something went terribly wrong. My G21 exploded in my hand. I've been reloading for about 18 months and starting to feel more comfortable with the whole process but I think its safe to say I did something wrong.

I'm thinking that I might have accidentally double charged the culprit but I'm not exactly sure. Earlier in the day I was measuring my rounds through a chronometer and everything was normal. I did shoot round nose lead that was hot (990-1000fps) so I stopped and switched to 200 grain roundnose with 5g's of Bullseye @ an average of 890fps.

Whatever it was it scared the bejeebus out of me. Below are some pictures. My trigger finger is bruised and swollen, my pride is a little hurt, my G21 is done for but other than that, fortunately all is ok. It felt like a bomb went off in my hand and I had to take about few minutes to gather my sense.

Becareful out there boys (and girls).

Below are pictures. Your opinion and experience is appreciated.
