Silly, fake 629s..... can this story die now? Isn't this the third or fourth time it's showed up here?

i have also seen this post the last time it flew by. What i dont under stand is how it could happen. If it was a squib then how did it tear the top of off all three chambers. i can see tearing the one on the top and the top strap and every thing looks to clean and shiny. and how did it dislodge the third bullet and it has only a little scratch on it. I have seen double charge rounds and split the cylinder and break the top strap.
let no talents go unused

Just a case of bad mojo that's all.

If it was real (vs a photo shop image) it wouldn't be a squib burst. Their hallmarks are different. This sort of damage would be more akin to an overload, possibly a Bullseye or similar powder behind a too tight crimped bullet, or even the legendary undercharge detonation (which is never reproducible in a laboratory).
