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.

I pick up quite a few RP cases with body splits. They are usually straight up the side. I don't know it its a Remington problem or from the gun they were fired in.

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.
