I have seen things posted on line that looked so real that I would have never guessed they were fakes. There are some out there that can do things with computers that are hard to believe.
Just saying something does not seem right with how things go down. Also, at the shot, look at where the muzzle is pointing, clear up into the heavy timber it looks like........ Not saying a shot would not be possible but just does not look right to me.

Wow! I'm impressed. Another reason to wear rubber underpants when hunting. :confused: Thanks for posting.
Tikka had a problem with some of their barrels and they split apart just like this barrel did. The explanation that came out on that was that some of the barrels were not properly heat relieved of stresses at the factory. There was a recall. There were several barrels that ruptured to bring about the recall. I own two Tikka T3's and for awhile I found it awfully hard not to flinch after I saw some of the photos of the burst barrels. Tikka identified the rifles by Serial Number that had the bad barrels at the time of their recall. Like I was gonna believe Tikka after that screw-up.
Eventually my nerves settled down and I stopped flinching while shooting my Tikkas. No more bursting barrels that I've heard of.
Now THAT'S why I put electrical tape over my muzzle!!! The exiting gases blow off the tape, and protects the bore from any unwanted debris. I put a length over it, then wrap a loop around the straight length. Works great.
