Did they rule out a bore obstruction (my first guess, and one that would confirm your 'old ammo' concerns - a time-weakened round is fired, the bullet lodges in the barrel, the next round cycles and <Blam!> two half M-1s (M-1/2s) where a fine whole M-1 once stood.)
You read that post, first round in chamber blew the rifle, the poster is ruling out a bore obstruction or a bullet in the barrel from a previous round, things that would cause an over pressure event.

The first post in the series clearly identifies old powder as the issue.

What is it you think extended storage does to ammunition?
Well, first I would like to read the opinions of the "experts" on this.
If I'm not shooting, I'm reloading.
