    Close call!

    This is the remains of a friends 25-06!!! Wreckage was found over a 10 metre radius, and I bet there are other pieces further out. The cause is unknown as the user only uses factory ammo and doesn't handload. So maybe another round made its way into the ammo box.

    Anyway the user only received a couple of scratches and a big fright!

    Fcuk - very lucky to walk away from that mess. Brings a new meaning to "take down rifle", btw that scope will probably need re-zeroing

    Looks like the fired round is still in the barrel, so might be able to read the headstamp on the case. Lucky man.
    Was it a Howa?

    Yes, unfortunately half the rear of the case has disappeared. All that it shows is Winchester. And yes it was a Howa I believe.

    I am guessing a .270....Just as I imagine that a 3-06 just would not chamber....where a .270 might??
