I run a smokeless MZ and they do not start out life as an inline. Most MZ's run around 20k psi. Smokeless MZ run around 40k psi. Thats a big difference. I've also heard people in the industry say that most MZ's aren't made out of the same grade of steel or go through as many QC checks as CF barrels. I don't know if thats true or not but it wouldnt surprise me.
Smokeless Powder builds high pressure quickly. Even in smokeless MZ's, theres not much of a difference between a functional gun and a pipe bomb next to your face.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
