No charge, primer only and the projectile just engaged the lands. One solid tap and it was out. I have a suspicion I know where I failed in my process, but there you go, happens I guess… Live and learn, emphasis on live LOL. The 45 slug went into my jar of shame.
@Oldbloke I’ve seen a couple of bulged pistol barrels where a slug has stayed somewhere in the barrel for whatever reason (usually a whoops in the reloading process), then the person hasn’t realised and put another round through it. Just glad i wasn’t about when they happened, i reckon it would be a definite pucker moment.
I’ve made a cartridge with no powder. 6.5x55 swede. Primer went off bullet didn’t even move.
Thought it was a dud primer, hard to tell with range noise. Wasn’t till I pulled the bullet all was revealed.
Also once tried to chamber a 6.5 swede in the 308. Thankfully didn’t fit and taught me not to have multiple open boxes of ammo on the table.
