Savage Mod 10MLSS Mishap
<P>This had to hurt. The only specifics were that he was using smokeless powder in a .50 cal rifle. <BR><BR>I wonder what 150 gr. of bullseye does&nbsp;under a 500gr. bullet.........<IMG border=0 align=absMiddle src="http://bowtest.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/thumb.gif"><BR><BR>http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/p...o/image001.jpg</P>http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/p...o/image009.jpg<BR><BR>http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/p.../image0066.jpg<BR><BR>http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/p...o/image005.jpg<BR><BR>

<P>That guy really screwed up on that one. Loading on top of a load.</P>

That's one reason I would always discharge my muzzy at the end of each day. Loads are cheaper than and safer than that.

<P>That's why you&nbsp;scribe a witness mark on the ram rod. If things dont line up, there's a problem. Figure it out...dont shoot it till things are right.&nbsp; MJ</P>

Every single Savage 10ML is individually proof tested at the factory before it ever leaves.<BR>&nbsp;If you follow the Clear &amp; Concise instructions for loading it properly, it's a fine gun.<BR>&nbsp;Guys get in trouble loading powder by volume like you would Black Powder or Pyrodex.&nbsp;Charges&nbsp;MUST BE WEIGHED&nbsp;on a scale like you would for a center fire cartridge.<BR>&nbsp;If these things were blowing through no fault of the shooter/loader, there would be a massive recall on them.&nbsp; <BR>&nbsp;They get bad press because guys do something wrong and right away they want to blame the gun maker not themselves.&nbsp; MJ<BR><P>&nbsp;</P>

<P>I cant find it now but there is an article about a person who tested these guns and told the company about problems like that occurring, and savage has done nothing about it</P>

Metaluno67 03-17-2010 05:46 PM

<P>BLAH BLAH, show the proof.<IMG src="http://bowtest.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P>

</P>No Pops, a shooting buddy sent me the photo. He was reminding me when I had a similar event happen to me many years ago. Bought powder at a local store&nbsp;and guy at the shop gave me 2 different cans. One was AA2015 and the other AA3100 both with green labels.&nbsp;Thinking they were the same I loaded for my 6.5-06. AA2015 is for small fast burners like .222 and 6BR. First round went over the chrony at 3800 fps. Pretty impressive with a 140 gr. bullet. Problem was the case ruptured and vented down into the magazine well on a Mark X mauser. When this happened it blew the stock into about 1 million pieces. <BR><BR>I did'nt get hurt just was a little shook up. It was like having an M-80 go off about six inches from your nose. I will never let it happen again. I triple check everything now.<BR><BR>So I can kinda imagine what the guy went through.<BR>
