Anyone get the skinny on the CATO on the 100 yard line at Metcalf today? I was 2 lanes down, went to grab something out of my car and when I returned there was blood and parts all over. My buddy was there for it but said it was all uneventful. The shooter went straight into the restroom after the accident and didnt return. Range guy claimed he might be firing 6.5 out of a 8mm Hakim, but I think it was an AG42 and was probably the right ammo for the gun. I know those guns can be finicky with the ammo and prone to CATO if not careful. Hope things turned out well for him.
