THINK ABOUT THIS. THE MORE YOU RELOAD A CARTRIDGE, THE MORE STRECHED AND WEAKER IT BECOMES.BUT, EVEN WITH A CASE/HEAD SEPERATION, THE 223 DOES NOT GENERATE ENOUGH PRESSURE TO CAUSE THAT MUCH DAMAGE AS LONG AS THE BORE IS FREE TO ALLOW BULLET AND SOME GAS TO PASS THROUGH IT. THE ANSER WOULD PROBABLY BE THAT THE RIFLES BORE WAS OBSTRUCTED FROM THE PREVIOUS SHOT. YOU WOULD NEVER NOTICE FROM SHOOTING BECAUSE THE SOUND WOULD REMAIN THE SAME, AND BULLET WOULD STILL STRIKE TARGET, BUT WHAT IF DUE TO THE WEAK CASE, THE BULLET TORE SOME OF THE BRASS CARTRIDGE NECK LOOSE AND IT LODGED AROUND THE GAS PORT AREA. THIS EQUALS PLUGGED BBL, EXCESSIVE PRESSURE AND EXCESSIVE DAMAGE ON THE NEXT FIRED ROUND.
