    .454 shaved a round?

    I was shooting My 5in ported taurus .454 casul today with factory loaded hornady 240gr jhp i shot two and the third one something hit me on the side of the face and made me bleed i thought at first maybe something from down range but i unloaded the next two rounds and i seen copper stuck above the forcing cone under the back strap stuck in there like splater i guess it blew out ......so i shot some of my lead cast and it shot fine what could cause a round to get shaved like this? has anyone had this happen to them ? can i even get the forcing cone cut in a .454?

    Your forcing cone needs to be opened up. If out of time, the shaving would have been at the nine o'clock position.

    I'd have either Taurus or a gunsmith check this out.

    It happens.
