    I was told it was a S&W 629 in .44 magnum. For some reason the pictures came out smaller that the ones that were sent to me.

    Not sure if it was an over load as the bullet is still in place in front of the blown case.

    Who has ever seen Chinese handgun ammo besides military surplus oddball calibers? Looks like a way over pressure handload to me.
