Blew Up my GP100
 
Bought some reloads and shot them yesterday. One must have been double charged. Top flew off, nearly hitting the guy next to me. Gun is a disaster. Glad no one was hurt, but this Wiley Clapp model was just gorgeous and shot great.

I used some reloads a friend gave me. Hurt like hell, no damage the gun, a 65-2. It did make oil squeeze out around the side plate.

I learned an important lesson, did you?

I've used other people's reload since then, but only once, just to see if my gun would malfunction (these had to be the most out of spec reloads I'd ever seen. Deep seated, not seated nearly enough, and several that were seated crooked as hell.)

I have a new rule: if it ain't factory, our I didn't load it myself (when/if I ever get into reloading) it ain't going in my gun.

Oh that sucks man. That gun is one the top of my want but can't have list. (Not ma approved)
Guess It's a good lesson and wall hanger now.

important lesson. never use someone else's reloads. ESPECIALLY anyone using grandpappy's data cuz by god he loaded em that way for decades and never needed a manual...

glad no one was hurt.

Pictures before and after!?

Glad no one was hurt or killed, never been a fan if reloads.

Wow!! Ir isn't easy to blow up a GP 100. I'm glad no one was hurt. I'd be PISSED.

Yes they do. I've had distributors refuse to sell black powder guns to me.

That sucks. How well do you know the guy who reloaded the ammo?
