    I got some .45 LC brass from a CAS shooter and in the hundred I got were 17 44-40s that were fired in a .45 LC. Not dangerous but dumb!

    I know a 308 cartridge will chamber and fire in a 270. Sometimes the 270 will actually survive! My uncle told me of a test rifle (fired remotely) that split its ring and the barrel followed the bullet down range. The barrel apparently was still intact.

    I once asked for a box of 7.62x54R and the clerk tried to hand me a box of 7.62x39mm... I have never trusted any gun shop employee since unless I knew them. This thread tells me that was the right decision.

    The 8x57 in a .30-06 seems to be common. I have seen it done. The shooter assumed that a mauser action with a military stepped barrel meant that it had to be 8x57 and therefore bought dies and bullets and loaded accordingly. The rifle survived, a testament to the strength of the 98 design.
