Question have you guys ever had a nipple where some of the threads are mashed or deformed I fired my plainsman with 90 grains of Goex ffg and 240 gr xtp in hornady red sabot . When I removed the nipple to clean it was a wtf moment ? It did not feel like it crossed threaded when I installed it .

Yes, my guess is leaking corrosive gasses ate the threads away. I put mine in with 1/4" Teflon tape.
