Overlength, punctured the primer, pressure blew the FP out the rear past the hammer and killed the guy.
So the pierced primer blew the firing pin out the back hard enough to re-cock the hammer and let the firing pin clear it? I've seen a LOT of pierced primers on S&W's, Colts, and Rugers with the firing pin mounted on the hammer. Never seen one move the hammer back even one notch.

To quote Elmer "Hell, I was there!" GW
Elmer was also known to frequently "embelish" the truth when it added to the story. Since you were there, can you provide even an approximate date and location? Surely there would be some notice in a local paper of such a horrific accident.
