of course we can always use JonM's suggestion, remove all warning labels and let natural selection run it's course!

Its just an example of what happens when procedure in loading isn't followed. There are folks like bit who had an accident and got lucky not getting hurt and there are folks out there looking to shortcut or other I'll advised antics that need to read this thread.

Loading your own is a safe and enjoyable hobby when safety rules and safe practices are followed. This is just a sample of what can happen when they are broken by whatever means.

My pastor told me that when he got married a family member broke into his house and removed all the labels from the canned goods in his kitchen cabinet. For about 2 weeks they did not know what they were having for dinner until a few minutes before they ate. A little off topic. But I thought is was hilarious!

I have a friend that blew up his Weatherby Vanguard 30/06 when he grabbed IMR-4320 off his powder shelf instead of the IMR-4350 he used for his favorite load.It was a full case, maximum load that was safe with 4350, but not with 4320. It blew the floorplate off, the scope was twisted as the front mount was thrown up and the stock cracked, but he was not injured.

In order to NOT make a powder mistake....I only keep the powder I am using at the moment on the bench...and that is the one in the powder measure...when I am done...I pour the measure back into the bottle with a funnel and put it back in the storage bin.

Duh? One says Accurate one says Reloader. One is in a square container the other in a round container. Talk about not paying attention.
