    just quoting wikipedia here: literally the first hit on googling 'SLAP round' "Saboted ammunition should not be used in firearms with muzzle brakes unless the muzzle brake has been specifically designed for such use."

    Prime example why I only shoot my reloads. If a round like that gets shaken enough the powder breaks down and get smaller, thus resulting in higher pressures. Could not finish the video, glad ur OK bro.

    I'm very Glad you are OK. But I have to make a common sense point. with a law enforcement background and training why would you ever fire a .50 cal round you know noting about? If I put any round in my firearms. I look at the case for any markings. If they are unmarked I won't use them for obvious reasons. Ypou had no idea how hot the round was. It was obious that it was an explosive round or overcharged. GOD Bless you Brother
