  2. That was painful to watch. Someone must have been chopping an onion near by, my eyes got teary.

  3. Of course one could simply reread Hatcher’s Notebook. He details lots of stuff about safety of ammunition, primers, powder, etc.

  4. Great video, now we know where all the ammo went. It was impressive how quickly the cooking off stopped once the water was applied.

  5. That was the saddest thing I’ve seen all week. Since most shops around here tend to stock reloading and black powder supplies, I’m wondering if these conclusions would hold up.
