Re: 338 RUM Encore malfunction
Sorry guy's. I can't seem's to transfer the picture here. I'll keep trying. Anyway, it's a picture of an Encore, chambered for 338 RUM, that blew up. The barrel is an after market, not TC made. According to the shooter, the barrel is fluted a little deeper and didn't have enough meat to handle the pressure of the RUM. The picture is really dramatic. Luckily, the shooter was not hurt. The action also survived and he still shooting it wearing a new barrel, less flute of course.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.
