I don't mean to open a can of worms, but has there ever been a reproducible instance of the secondary explosion effect?

That answer is above my pay grade Sir. I can not say for sure. I'm still learning. No worries on the worms.... just good conversation.

I would refer you to "Firearms Pressure Factors" by L.E.Brownell Ph.D (ISBN:0-935632-85-9) for the most authoritative discussion on the matter that I have found so far.

Found 25 gr. RX-7 and the 311290 with a large rifle primer to be very accurate in a 4-groove Springfield I once owned.

I brought up the mention of copper in an alloy but didn't want to hijack the thread so I moved it here.
