5.0 gr. under a 230gr. pill is hardly a bunny fart load. My bet is on a bad primer that did not ignite with full force and heat which caused a partial powder burn and squib.

Just a thought that has not been mentioned yet in this thread.....Mark

Interesting theory, but I doubt it. I tend to err on the side of a heavy crimp, I've shot hundreds of rounds of this load without experiencing a pulled bullet (or another squib), and there was no noticeable drag on the cylinder before I experienced the squib, which one would expect had the bullet loostened far enough in the case to cause ignition issues.
