Thanks for the info, Mike Irwin, I had not been aware of that 1950 one, but did know of a slightly later case when an SHT 1903 let go with a "rat shooting" load of 9 grains of Bullseye and a round ball. That seems mild enough, but would give exactly the kind of quick, sharp blow that a brittle receiver could not take.

One particular pain on that subject is a certain "Doctor" who claims that either blowups never happened or that they can't happen again because the dangerous ones have already blown. This was "proved" by statistics and we all know that statistics are never wrong.
