chesterwin: You realize that some people have mistakenly loaded .223 (5.56) ammo into 5.45 AK-74s?

That easily could be what caused the AK-74 to go Boom- if the gun in that photo is a standard 5.45x39 AK-74.

A young guy mentioned to me that he put a .223 (or 5.56) round into his AK-74.

The bullet was wedged Very tight either in the leade or possibly deeper in the bore, but the gun appeared normal on the outside.
