Phhhlbbbtttt! NOT Bang!

When you drop the hammer, and your revolver gives out what sounds like a rasberry instead of a normal report ... It can only mean a'couple o' things. Hangfire?! Or Squib?! Never had a hangfire. But squibs? Sure. The above is a sample of what MUST be cleared from the bore BEFORE recommencing fire.

Reminder to self ...

Always ... Always ... Check the cartridge overall length.
Set too deep, shorter oal may push your load out of spec to dangerous levels.

Carelessness will lead to ammo that needs to be pulled and reloaded
