Hell... torture tests are just fun.  That's the only reason I need.   ;D

    Wow. Holding up to that last load was damned impressive - they basically shoved a pipe bomb in the action.

    Why didn't the bolt ever eject the casing?  oh-oo-oh, hot casing.  Did I miss something?  I'll be waiting for Part II!

    The case was stuck in the chamber.

    Normally the pressure of firing will cause the brass to expand out to completely fill the chamber and then spring back. When you get this much pressure the brass expand to fill the chamber, then the chamber expands a bit, then the chamber springs back but the brass has been stretched beyond its elastic limit and can't spring back any more.

    You're left with the brass wedged into the chamber with a compression fit and perfectly pressed into every microscopic imperfection or pore in the chamber.

    I'd guess that load was probably pushing around 150,000 PSI. Spread across the entire area of the chamber you could be approaching half a million pounds of force being applied to cramming that case into the chamber walls.

    One time when I went out shooting, we didn't have any 7.62x54 with us so I shot .308 through my Mosin.   :saywhat

    It pulled the brass to the back of the receiver, but it didn't kick it out ... It was awfully fat at the nose of the case though ...  :facepalm
