.22 rimfire, one rim can slip over the other with little force.
Damn C3, glad to see I'm not the only on who's still up at this hour. But I know the two rounds aren't the same, it was just the best that I could think as a comparison.
But I actually sat here and tried to load the magazine for my 702 so that one rim was behind the other and let's just say it is t easy.
So if you manage to do it by mistake, wow. That's all I can say.
