    This is the best attempt at some detail I can find on the accident, though it's still pretty thin stuff:
    More Depth: TD Accident Fatalities | WeaponsMan

    All the coverage of it in the succeeding year suggests no official blame or charges were applied. Was wondering if there might be a publicly available official report on the incident, but nothing so far.
    No idea how accessible US state-by-state inquests are, though.

    Seem to recall 2015 was a bad year for preserved MV accidents, with that chap killed by an HST too.
    Alan'/GPs general caution above seems very wise to me.

    It's making me wonder about the WW2 accident rate across the international board.
    Not something I recall being mentioned in much depth. It's always 'there was an incident involving' in tech histories, etc.
    Hmmm.

    Reload the old brass using a new primer, projectile, and correct powder.

    As for the venison, actually a good bit. It was a multiple hit situation, but lower velocity impacts so less meat destruction.
