Wow, is that a Ruger M77? Doesn't look like Rem 700

I think it looks like a T/C icon, due to the rear of the bolt and their new bolt handle. Was smooth, now like that. Anyone know history. Maybe a ca. resident w/ too hot handloads. Thanks lead free.

lol that is a little more than just a fail. Id call it a complete decimation.

but at least he wasnt hurt.

And im pretty sure if i saw that happen i could possible second guess mine.

barrel obstruction probably, maybe stuck the muzzle in the dirt
hot load maybe

Yeah, that seemed a little strange...very task oriented.

I think that it's a Browning. They can't be bothered with exploding guns, there are Elk to hunt.

Dunno...the way that the camera guy stays focused on the rifle the whole time, frorm trigger pull to setting it in the dirt, to a few seconds later when he says "oh my god!" I think it may be a fake...

That's what the spare rifle is for when you're out hunting.
Glad he wasn't hurt.

Why didn't he transition to his secondary weapon?

I was thinking the same thing. Generally, if a rifle blows up on film, the person taping moves the camera all over. In this case, the camera is totally focused on the rifle even for a while after it's on the ground. And he didn't even ask if the shooter was okay until later.

Barrel obstruction - could even be water since it looks like it was raining.

Or note that it was raining. And he had a sling. Could have had it shouldered and rain water in the barrel.

^ yeah what he said lol...

Had to be. They teach you to keep you barrel away from the dirt for a reason (hunter safety class).
