Kablooey!

I just saw an account of a rifle letting go at a range. Like most stuff I see on the Internet, I am skeptical of it until there is some corroboration. Anyway, the story goes something like this: Gomer goes to the range, and on the first shot his rifle comes apart, leaving him with a gash in his forehead. Subsequent analysis shows he had 66 grains of powder in his .30-06 case, rather than the 56 grains called for in the loading manual.
