    WTF! !!

    Here's one for you gurus out there.

    What would make this go off?
    NO heat
    NO primer strike
    Just 'sitting' there so to speak....

    Shit Abe. Hope you're OK.
    That's very odd. Nothing other than powder in the case? Forming with fast powder? No filler or other material (intentional or not).

    Sum acid or sum thing in the case, bit scary, hand load or factory. wasn't black powder round was it?
    Hope your injurys aren't too bad, and no long term effects, other then a faster pulse, when handling ammo from now on.

    Static electricity somehow? What do you use to go in the end when you flash form?

    My guess would be some cleaner or other chemical has created an exothermic reaction with the primer or powder causing enough heat to set the powder off, hence the delay.

    Or you were wearing a shitload of nylon and there was enough static electricity to set it off, I doubt it though.
