Somebody reloaded their rounds with Black Powder and they squibbed when they did a double tap?

This was an industry demo right, don't do this or this happens, if not is the ID 10T shooter alive & well or scattered all over the range like his BCG. Mickey

Squib or oil in barrel leftover from cleaning? If it's a trick question, maybe a stuck firing pin and firing out of battery?

It's odd that the bolt Carrier gas key is unharmed? Don't know what that means! Looks like it wasn't staked or staked properly. It should of scarred the carrier where the screws would of Been ripped out.

I'm no expert, but just from appearance, I'd say it split from the front of the bolt, and the bolt got rammed backwards splitting the carrier, releasing the threading from the gas key fasteners, and the pressure blew the gas key up out of the way unharmed. Just guessing from the look of it. I'm wondering what the receiver and chamber looked like.

I've been waiting all day. I even went out looking at similar failures. Most were "unknown," diagnosed as squibs, although none had the split carrier. That must have been one powerful round or a complete obstruction on a locked bolt.

I agree that isn't a 55 grain Walmart round that did that.
