Fire forming brass for a wildcat caliber. I was using a fast burning pistol powder and filled remaking space with tissue paper.
Day prior I tested about 20 different loads to find full brass expansion.
Day 2, once I found the right charge, I was “quickly” working through the process.
I wasn’t aiming (my face was not against butt stock) just point towards a berm on our property.
6th round. Complete distraction.
In retrospect. The 5th round didn’t sound right. But when you’re in a hurry you’re not focused.
Should have double checked my second guess.

Measurements and Specs.

Happy you are okay after that. up

Bet you have a different plan now, and know what a squib load sounds like, and what to do after you hear it. wink

Yikes.
Quick question - were you using jacketed bullets on your forming rounds?

Ouch.

When I fire form I'm using pistol powder and tissue filler only. No bullets.

Bring enough gun.
