I absolutely would not have believed this without video.

Exactly what the title says. Ejected case hits lose ammo and sets off primer, detonating the cartridge. Doesn't look like any major damage but I'm sure there was some bits-o-brass "shrapnel" going. Not terribly dangerous really, but, well, frankly it's not supposed to work that way.

I was also thinking "sensitive primer."

I tried to figure it out but the video isn't clear enough for me.

There's an odd shadow on the top of the box. American Eagle maybe?

No, it's not AE. Federal plasters those boxes with big, bright, white lettering. Almost looks like a box of Norma ammo.

Yup Norma to a "T".

Good Job Rach.

That is very weird though, would never even think of that happening...

So here's some wild speculation. First, let me preface it by saying that I wouldn't expect this to happen in any event, regardless of the manufacturer. So, on to the wild speculation. Could this be hand-loaded ammo with maybe a primer not fully seated? There are a lot of indoor ranges which prohibit hand-loaded ammo but, <ahem>, people have been know to hand-load the ammo then put it in a factory box to sneak it in.

Nah, probably not. Probably just a sensitive primer.

A few years ago, one of my older brothers was "shucking" rounds out of his AK, while standing on loose gravel. We got on him and told him to stop, because one of those may land on the primer and set it off. He was like "awww bull crap", and continued doing it...we all stepped back.

Nothing happened, but I should show him this video! :unsure:

Going off on a tangent here...

Back in the last Century, the South African military (maybe Rhodesians?) came up with a 12 gauge shotgun hand cranked ring device that was mounted on the roof of cargo trucks.

The ring device had multiple 6 inch shotgun barrels placed on the ring pointing outward at different minor angles.

It was operated by the driver or passenger who would turn the hand crank which would spin inside the ring randomly firing the shotgun shells.

Designed to hit attackers out to about 30 yards.

That's not a tangent, that's a completely different topic, wholly unrelated to the OP in any way.

It's elder, are you surprised? Sometimes I think he watches old episodes of Sons of Guns, thinks it's the History Channel, and then brings it here to tell us a story.

I don't watch TV.

Spend most of my time reading.

Fishing, camping, working on wood projects, sometimes shooting.
