Thread: Rifle barrel explosions.

    Rifle barrel explosions.

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd post this video as it shows in great detail what you can expect from some of the popular rifle manufacturers when they go off with a plugged muzzle.
    The Blaser V Remington argument could be settled after this....

    Neat video. Unfortunately it doesn't' paint an absolute picture of what rifle is stronger. What caliber? what was the obstruction? A lot of the variables are left to conjecture. Note that none of the breeching failed.~Muir

    (PS: Tho.... I couldn't help but be gratified to see the front end of the Remington 700 come to pieces!)
