Blown Chamber

I have had to deal with three "blown" cylinders. Basically, a chamber(S) was bulged from excessive pressure. Extraction difficult. Some times a case would split All three guns were used S&W's. That's not a hit on Smith. It's mostly what I shoot. Hope I never come across a blown cylinder again. Should that happen, the gun would be returned to the factory upon discovery. That is, before the set of the sun. Expect to spend some money.

Added: Back in the day the 38/44[38 Special Case] round in a N Frame Smith had the level of performance reported for the Federal 158 gr. 357 Magnum round.
