the feed ramp and barrel = too much metal cutawy

Her smith had to make the 1911 9mm barrel feed ramp match that of the frame, but he should have checked the frame specs, cause they are off, which is what caused the case to burst, 3.8 grs of BE is the max for the 150 gr lrn. but .2 gr diff should not have made that much diff in the results, cause all the loading manuals are conservative. The case support was inadequate. Should have known better than to trust a Filipino frame to be in spec when you can't assume that about colt or Kimber, eh?. The pins, holes, everything had to be de-burred, chamfered. Might have known that other things would be out of spec. Those Flip frames are made in 3 pcs and then welded together. John Browning would have a cow over that, most likely.

Or just not put out-of-spec, overpressure ammo in a microcompact pocket gun. That would wok, too.
