I did this to a Dan Wesson once when I skipped down a line while reading the reloading manual. What I thought was a starting load turned out to be about double the maximum load. Other than my pride, I wasn't injured but the gun was scrap.

Since then I use a highlighter in my reloading manuals. Others use a ruler while reading their reloading manuals.
