    A chap did a similar thing a few years ago at Minsterley ranges,
    he pushed a patch through but it didn't come out the muzzle. The rifle was destroyed, and the stock was shattered right back to the action, the owner escaped with just a damaged hand.

    A mate of mine had his 243 threaded and had taken it to the range to Zero it, a chap at the range just happened to ask if he could see what sort of a job they had made of the crown, when he looked he thought that there was no rifling in the end of the barrel, further inspection showed that it was a short length of clear plastic tube inserted in the end of the barrel ( i assume this is used when setting the barrel up in the lathe) He was not best pleased.

    Maybe I am been a bit dumb, but don't you put the bore sighter in the chamber like a live round?
    If so how the hell do you chamber a round also

    No, these ones go in the end of the barrel with a centering pine, like a colimator (?). Guess the shooter had the ultimate 'scope bite'.
