    The photo looks staged, shoes [not boots] empty, etc. Barrel wouldn't peel open like that - I think. Provenance of happening vague. Warning to be careful and safe. Urban legend...?

    Certainly looks like a repair any competent woodworker could easily make. When you don't have a store full of spares you make do.

    Would have been a U with the arrow inside for the Union of SA.

    The high chamber pressure and velocity tells me the cartridge is quietly going to be downloaded in its life. Sooner or later, probably sooner than later. But I've been wrong before.
