Blown-out shot

Jump to navigationJump to search $40 OFF Order $79+ Weekend Madness

A shot that dissipates the explosive force by blowing out the stemming instead of breaking down the coal. It may be caused by insufficient stemming, overcharging with explosive, or a burden that is too much for the charge to dislodge. See also: gun; blow. Syn: <A ref="gogo/dmmrt176.html#d3689">cannon shot; gunned shot. Nelson
