That's not uncommon at cowboy matches too. One of the reasons I lost any interest in the game all the old conservative folks who insist on close targets don't seem to care about spall coming back at the shooters/observers.
Gotta admit that splitting the bullet is pretty cool.

Oh I like to ring steel, I just wish that particular game was a bit more about accuracy and a bit less about making it so that everyone, can ring steel every time so that everyone feels included.

Glad you're ok Eris. Thankfully where I go shooting there are good RSOs where safety for everyone is paramount.

Something similar happened to me. I kept on getting hit with something on my face and hands. The guy next to me was using a Brand new Ruger 9mm carbine with a muzzle brake at the end. Finally I talked to him and two other guys who were even further reported the same thing. It seems like his muzzle brake was the culprit. I came home unaware of the blood on my cheek, my wife, who has zero knowledge or interest in guns was not too happy.
