Can you guess what caused this failure?

Dang man, assuming you're okay since you were able to post. What's your thoughts as to what happened?

That's bad, the split goes to the recoil lug.

Looks like a custom barrel. Is it new?

In the 2nd picture I was trying to see what cartridge this rifle was built for. 300 something or other. Was a 325 wsm nearby? Possible mix up of ammo, obstruction, or wrong powder charge.

Once saw a Sendero 7 Rem mag that a less than wise fellow said he put the muzzle end against a stray dog and pulled the trigger. It looked very similar to this. The dog and him lived.

Hope you're OK if you were behind or nearby.
The last photo of one I have seen a few years back was a cleaning rod left in the barrel. The shooter had a stuck case, popped it out, fired another round, and it looked similar to this.
We don't know yet, in this event. Could be literally anything....
