Sighting In Your Expensive Deer Rifle

Shiny new, high-powered deer rifle.............. $1200.00
Quality, high-powered scope........................ $ 550.00
Bore sighting device..................................... $ 140.00
Forgetting to remove the bore sighting device prior to shooting?
priceless!

I did that once with a shotgun. Me and my buddy were crawling up on a pond and the barrel went into the mud. I was trying to jiggle the mud out when my buddy jumped up and started shooting at the ducks. I then jumped up and started shooting also. After the smoke cleared, I looked at the barrel and it looked just like yours.

Firearms do not like obstructions in the barrel. You, and I, are both very lucky the barrel did not split into our heads.

Jim,
Do you think that the picture is real?????? I would never have thought that it would be possible to split a barrel to that extent.
Either way it's an amazing photo.

It was a Fluted barrel that's why it split so evenly

Saw my dad do the exact same thing when I was a kid. He's lucky to be able to tell about it. It looked like something straight out of an Elmer Fudd cartoon. :p

It would go over the loading bench as a reminder - I wouldn't rebuild it.

I have a blown up Smith M10 over my bench now.

Lucky to have all his body parts intact after that!

I agree i would make it so it would never fire again.Then send it back to the owner.
