I'm 99% sure that last pic is not related to the others. Those pictures have actually been around for quite some time now. Mythbusters tried to dupe it but could not. Personally I think they were just using the wrong barrel type.

Where's you get the pics? Surely the source was referenced, even if incorrectly so?

Doesn't seem like a bore sight would do that.... DAYUM!

I'm still trying to figure out why anyone would want or need to waste their money on a laser bore sighter. Specially to use in a bolt gun.

puts you on paper, then the rest is using the scope.

I guess you don't realize that you can look down the bore on a bolt action rifle... ;)
The only reason for a laser bore sighter is on lever action, pump action or semi autos where you can't see down the bore.

I just use Bushnell optical bore sighter. Time and time again, it works for me. It gets me within 1 inch or so from the point of aim. Good enough for me. And, I never forget to take it off the rifle before shooting.

That'll buff right out...

Ok, the injuries don't look like they came from a rifle going Ka-Boom like that. I saw video of a guy doing something similar while hunting. He managed to get his bore plugged with snow or dirt. Looked exactly the same as that gun. There were no injuries to the shooter. Just a puzzled "WTF?" followed by "Somebody hand me another rifle quick, he's getting away." It had that same peeled-like-a-banana look.

looks like the typical cartoons , put your finger into the bore , buildup of pressure = banana peel barrel.

almost positive I have seen this , a long time ago.

Come on up, meet me at a range and I'll show you how to sight in any gun at any distance with one shot. I do take a second shot to fine tune and a third for comfirmation but, one shot should get you in the black.

i saw an interesting way to zero - havent tried it. the guy shot, moved his cross hairs to the hole in the paper. reacquired the target. shot. he was a inch or so off. moved the cross hairs to the hole, ect. until he zero's - seemed the easiest thing ever

Laser bore sight are particularly useful when zeroing lasers.

In the military we used to use them all the time to zero things like an-peq2 and other infrared doodads.

That is the correct way to sight in if you're on paper with the first shot. I zero people's scopes as a service at the range where I work. My normal procedure with a bolt gun - put target at 33 yards, pull bolt on rifle; look through bore and center target with bore; clamp down rifle and look through scope & adjust as needed to get scope aligned with target; fire first shot; move turrets to center cross hairs on hole from first shot; move target to 100 yards and fine tune zero, - I can usually have a rifle zeroed in 3 - 5 shots.

I think that is the same vid I saw, but the other one was a bit longer. A few seconds later he asks for another gun.

You don't even have to be on paper. If you can spot your impact on the berm, you can adjust your POA accordingly.

We were having a hard time spotting 1000yd little gun hits on the berm sunday because the berm was in shadow during the first relay.
Only the 50's were making enough dirt splash to see.

You don't typically use bore sights at a target a click away....

Your eyes are just getting old. See if your eye doctor can get you a perscription for some 100x glasses.

I had a shotgun blowout before while duck hunting. Fired at a duck once, then twice, then pow. Turned out the second shot only sent the wad about 3/4 of the way down the barrel. Must have been wet powder or a bad primer. Whatever it was it cycled the third round into the chamber.

I believe that everyone has a right to own firearms, but not everybody should.

Hope the shooter is OK, and he finds another hobby.

I'll let you know next time I go up to the lake. I've got a family cabin in kinky beach. Or, you could just send them all to me for sighting in and safe keeping. I promise to feed them all on a regular basis and send you the bill!:D

I zeroed mine at around 1.5" low at 25 guesstimated yards, and it was only a few clicks off at 100. I had about an inch and a half low, and 2 inches to the left. Anyway, I'll always visually do it rather than try to use a laser anyway.
