Pull the bullets and start over. There is a great big UNKNOWN there. I was standing behind one of our officers when his A3 Colt blew up. Colt estimated the chamber pressure at 80,000 POUNDS! They blow guns up intentionally and measure the pressure it took to do it. They had never blown one up that badly.

All because a "friend " gave him some reloads

After reading this, I'll make sure from now on when I go to the range not to accept free ammo......

Reminds me of the Vietnam War. The Americans spread very high pressure "Face Removing" loads 7.62X39 loads in the Congs ammo supplies.
They started to blame the Chicoms for making dangerous AK-47 Rifles.

New ammo is cheaper than an eyeball.
