Has anyone ever had a round "cook-off"? What exactally does it take? If TSHTF and you were blasting bad guys or Ruskies, and there was a pause for a while and all of a sudden your rifle went off, not real good. Any vets have any experience with this? Anyone ever try to do this on purpose to see what it takes?

Years ago I had a M-60 cookoff a round after
shooting several hundred rounds in training. The only bad part for me was that it started as a misfire that stuck in the chamber. I didnt realize it, and I chamered another in behind it.while I was trying to clear the mess the first round had enough time to go off and I ended up with a small ball of fire in my face. But mind you I had not changed the barrel like I should have and it was very hot.
