Just looking for other thoughts of what's happened to a friends gun.
Out shooting a few rabbit off a new planting with the .243. Opened a new box of ammo shot 2 rabbits reloaded and bang. The gun exploded (as per pic) it even pushed the head out of a bullet in the mag and lit the powder. The mag shot out into the quad box and smashed. It also left him with burns to his face and eye. Has anyone seen this before. ? The gun was a browning xbolt 1 year old. Hornady sst ammo. And the odd thing is that the rabbit he was aiming at when it exploded was killed 100 yards away.
