I know that American Eagle loads are typically HOT.
Any documentation on that claim...American Eagle ammunition has never seemed "HOT" in any of my guns.

On another note, is there a chance that this was an unknown provenance handload, as your post seems to indicate that this was a single round.

Lastly, is there a chance that the cylinder was damaged prior to the episode you've recounted? Best regards, Rod
