Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

"Again, I’m not suggesting anybody actually do this. You should probably also never shoot .223 in your 5.56 chamber, 7.62×51 in your .308 chamber, 2.5″ shells in your 3″ chamber, .22 Short in your .22 LR chamber, etc etc etc ad nauseam. 
Big difference between these and cases that headspace on the mouth, as he points out. My G20 will never see a short and week.
They also say my USP .45 can handle a .45 Super. I am not wanting to find out, though.
Interesting article, none the less.

Head space on rim vs case mouth.

If you shoot short rimmed shells, your chamber gets dirty. Seems it could be a bit more interesting if you shoot rimless though...
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
