Powder is nitrogen rich. Plants like it. I hope the shooter is ok. I HAD a beautiful Remington 700 Stainless in 7mm-08, in a gorgeous piece of walnut. I was not watching what I was doing, click, sizzle, pop! I had to borrow the range masters rubber mallet, bang the bolt up, then back. Remingtons 3 rings of steel did there job. The head, bolt face, were blown twice normal size. The receiver was bulged just ahead of the barrel. A $1300 mistake. That receiver and barrel sit by my reloading bench as a remainder. The worst failure was a fellow shooting a K98 next to me shooting with Turkish 8mm ammo. Click, BOOM! Barrel, stock, magazine blew out! So it can happen. L8899#
