Case Failure

Had a case failure.

Cause? Primer not seated correctly in primer pocket. Loose primer in primer pocket. Or hand load failure? Result: blow back?

Here's what happens with a 9mm case failure - primer blew out and case was crushed in the barrel - blew apart the left side of my Glock and the trigger, and slide catch - no injury but a miracle the nothing worse happened. Believe this cartridge was a 9mm federal 115 grain and not my reload.
