Default .44 Mag. Kaboom

A buddy was telling me about pics. he saw of a S&W 629 that had the top strap completely blown off and three of cylinders blown out, two from secondary discharges from using Chinese ammo. What brand ammo could this have been.

It had me stumped. Thanks for clearing that up.

Now that I'm starting to reload, I'm noticing a lot of my .44 mag shells are

belled a little just beyond the head.

I resized them twice, and they're only just scraping through the dial gauge

set at .457, book spec.

I wonder if these cartridges will jam in the bore of my guns, and want to

show them around to other .44 reloaders before I re-use them...
