Default To shoot, or not to shoot...

Noticed this round was pushed back much further than normal after chambering it. Do you think it's safe?

Safety minded would say why risk it. I would say why not. But I'm the curiosity killed the cat rule, so if you don't want to die... toss it or pull lead and use to reload.

I believe the general consensus here at FTF is no it isn't safe to shoot but I have been wrong before.

Is saving a few cents really worth risking your gun, or even your life?

Toss it.

As TWW posted, why risk blowing the extractor off the bolt face for the cost of a bullet. You can pull the bullet and reload the round safely.

That round can create high pressures when fired. When in doubt, toss it out.

i agree, don't shoot it. but agree with Nitestalker, tear it down and save the components.

might not do any damage, but why risk it. it being pushed back like that, yes it could cause a pressure spike and possibly damage the gun or you.

A round like that can cause either one of two problems.

First, as its reduced the volume of the case, it could cause excessive pressure.

Second, if the bullet is loose in the case, it may not offer enough resistance and result in a squib load.

The price of one round is not worth the risk.
