It looks to me like a case that received a firing-pin strike before it was fully chambered and, as a result, ruptured forward of the rim. If so, that would be the fault of the gun, not the ammo. I'm in agreement with NDEBT.

Any Savage model 24 fans here? I have one in 22 magnum over 20 gauge. Maybe my favorite firearm of all time since it was the first I ever shot. There used to be many around cheap now shops want $400-$500 for a nice one. I wish Savage would make them again.

First gun my Dad bought me was a .222 over 20 gauge,,, used for small game and deer. Shot my first buck with it! Used it for 2 years then moved on to a 99 in .308 that I've carried ever since.
My grandfather had a .22 over 410 that he used around the farm,,, sits in my gun cabinet now.

Amen, it would be a boring ol' world indeed

As for that stock, well, you wouldn't need to worry about someone grabbing your rifle by mistake. Not my style, but I think I kinda like it

What it looks like is a round that was not fully in the chamber before the hammer tripped and set it off. Since the case was not supported fully it let go when the gunpowder ignited.

The reason can be poor maintenance, ie dirty dirty gun so that the build up of debris held the round partially chambered. It could also be a simple headspace item with the gun that allows it to fire out of battery with or without a dirty chamber. If there are really loose tolerances with the conversion in order to facilitate function in a large number of weapon manufacturer brands this can easily happen.

I've also had a pierced primer in a regular GI M16 that spread gas through the rifle including back into my face. Fortunately I was wearing glasses or I might easily have been blinded at least in one eye.

Need pin shootin ammo

Been lurking here for a long time. Folks have alot of nice ones. I have a High Standard Supermatic. 6.75" ported bbl with weights. Stamped 'US property'. I've decided to enter a bowling pin league with it. What brand bulk box ammo would you folks suggest. I just finished a bulk box of Remington and was not pleased with the quality at all. I really don't need match grade stuff, and will use it for high volume plinking in other guns also. I'm thinking Federal this time around. What does the collective think?

If you ever want to sell that, let me know.


I'd really like to get one of those for when my daughter gets old enough to shoot guns with me.

Federal Bulk in the 550 box at wal mart runs flawlessly in my Ruger 22/45
as well as in my M&P 15/22 pistol.

Thanks for the reply Mustang. Always had good luck with Federal ammo. Can't remember the last time I bought Federals though. My other 22's seem to gobble anything I feed them but I read these High Standards can be picky and this one, although made sometime during WWII, looks minty and unfired. I was also advised not to fire high velocity in it either. I'll wait and see if a debate unfolds here and, if not, likely grab a box on the way to the range tomorrow after work. Can't wait. I love this gun.

My Browning Buckmark loves Remington Thunderbolt 22 blasted through the 1000 with zero problems while Remington Copper misfire at 50 per 1000.
