    Thatís what I meant...mixed up chamber and cartridge in my post.

    Given that we donít know what firearm was at play, I think itís entirely possible that a controlled round feed/claw extractor held the round in place against the breech face. It would explain a lot...but who the hell does it twice?

    The case was marked Lake City, below is the original link. And I had hoped someone here had seen this happen before and now we have a mystery.

    Found this in my brass bucket, what caused it?

    Now I think the case ejected at the speed of light and hit "warp speed".

    My friend had a polish tantal that did this, though not as bad- but it was steel cased ammo 5.45.
    I believe he sold it, full disclosure due to the issue. I disnt know enough at the time to really dig in. We just assumed an out of spec chamber.

    No that I think of it, a friend's Makarov did this to .380ACP brass. (Yes, it was chambered in 9x17, not 9x18.)

    The Makarov only bulged brass on one side, so we figured it was that the feed ramp wasn't supporting the cases enough.
