It didn't blow up completely, action started to lock up. Range officer said
just bang the stock on the table like we used to do with the shotguns. Got a little stiffer each time. Kept firing until I couldn't get the action to open.
Took it to a smith. He hammered it open and showed me the round with the blown out primer. The gun is older than I am, so I knew its days were numbered. If anyone knows a smith in the southwest that will work on an old Rem 760, I'd love to have it working again. From what i can tell, looks like it will require a barrel and bolt assy, worn lugs, no headspace adjustment.
