He says its OFB shells and barrel. And once they understood it was all well..
Didn't get into what were the issues?
I think its barrel wear causing muzzle strike due to shell cg offset.
And the ERFB shells are anyway low fracture toughness by design to produce right fragmentation pattern.
I am willing to leave it as we wont get the details nor should we.
As long as poor johnny's firing the guns done suffer from the barrel bursting incidents...I trust that the powers that be have factored the OFB shell quality into the barrel wear calculation...
