The only one I've had so far that split like that was when I, in an incredible fit of stupidity fired a cylinderful of .44 mag loads in my .45 Colt (a Ruger Redhawk). 5 of the cases just bulged, but the fifth has a very impressive full-length tear (I kept that case as a reminder of the danger of not paying attention). The load was 15 grains of Blue Dot with a 240 grain LSWC.

When I fired the one that split, I noticed that it did sound a little strange, but I never got bit by hot gases or pieces of brass.
