I was going to say fail-as-bolt-was-opening/extracting, but after looking at that Ejector extrusion you're talking some extreme pressure before the case let go/before the bullet exited the barrel. Had the case not failed (when it did)/releasing pressure you would have seen much higher velocity still.
You can't see it in the pictures--but there's actually a small column of displaced material up the side of the head atop that expanded "plug" pressed into the ejector. Notice how the engraved lettering is intact on the ejector "plug"--as well as on the rim face.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
