Thanks for all of that...

From your link:

One friend and colleague of an author, a highly educated Finnish gunwriter, did not believe on warnings that the Secondary Explosion Effect (S.E.E. -- also known as the Reduced-Charge Detonation) is possible with sub-minimum charges as small as 0.2 grams = 200 milligrams = 3.1 grains with a force, able to wreck a good quality .308 Winchester rifle. One full gram of the very same powder behind the same kind of bullet may be completely safe charge. The friend almost lost his eyesight, despite of the safety goggles he bore.

I don't mean to be dismissive, but we are back to 'A guy I know did this' type info...

According to the article he was also loading a heavy long bearing surfaced spire point jacketed bullet backwards in a case as a 'plinking round'...
