    Love the M3 at 3:20 with a can. Those are great, I had one half a lifetime ago and wish I had it now...

    Really Appreciate the Education on SLAP rds.
    Like I originally posted, I had never heard of them before.

    All the slap rounds I own are dated 09. I have no idea the source of them, or why they were surplused. The slap T rounds I have are also dated the same. Made by Winchester. I wonder what head stamp those rounds had that Kentucky ballistics were using?

    I'll bet if we looked at his threads on this or even if you message him you could find out.

    I bet if you sent him a message on his youtube channel he would answer, simply because you have some of the slap rounds and I'm sure he would want to want you to have all the information on them he has.

    Even though I would never dream of actually firing them, I would still love to know the background on them just to have for my records. Mine are still linked in a belt

    I'd hang some kind of warning sign on the belt, just to make sure that in any case, no-one else will have the bad idea of trying to fire them. You never know in life...
    I have some older Carcano ammo from wartime, and I have put them in a container with a warning on it.
    Sgould anything happen to me, I don't want my son or someone else to have someday the bad idea of trying to fire the old warhorse with that ammo.

    As an Ammo Tech, my suspicion is with the sabot... I would almost put money on sabot breakup as being the cause of this.

    The two earlier shots show signs of loss of obturation, with gas leaking past the projectile. These rounds could be more than twenty years old, which is way beyond the working life of many plastics. Lead bullets in copper jackets are well known and very stable objects.. I suggest that we should not be using rifle ammunition with plastic sabots more that five or ten years old...!
