Never seen this before. Good chance this is one Julie picked up at the range. No way to know if it was fired in one of our guns. R-P case.

What headstamp is on it?? I have never seen a failure like that one either. It is a very unusual pattern also. Makes me wonder if it was embrittled somehow.

That straight up the side fracture is typically from the high hoop stress from high pressure or brass that is a bit hard. If it was new manufacture Remington, maybe they are tweeking their process to get back into production.

When competing in the "Seel Chicken Game", I had some match prepped brass for my 44mag that I reloaded 10+ times (fired in a10.5" bbl Ruger SA) before they would start splitting from the mouth toward the head. This was back in the 70s when I first began reloading in earnest, and I hadn't started annealing by then (but, I do now).
