I was at a range and didn't see it happen but saw the aftermath of a large hunting caliber handgun peel somewhat like that.

I had a squib 38 special load once in my Ruger Bisley Vaquero 357 and didn't realize until the next round because they were light rounds anyway. The shot felt fine, but kicked weird and I heard two bullets hit the target board. Didn't really hurt the gun, except for ringing the barrel. I didn't even notice that until I cleaned it that night and felt a small part of the barrel that didn't have the same resistance on the cleaning patch. I check with a bore light confirmed it. Could only see it on the outside by looking longways down the barrel to see the slight budge. I shot that gun for many more years like that, and accuracy didn't suffer. I was very lucky.

I was told 38 wadcutter with Bullseye powder has blown up more revolvers than any other caliber. I think I believe that.

I believe a stovepipe is a partially ejected shell caught in the closing action of a semi-auto, mouth end up (often seen in a 1911 cause the 45cal mouth is so freaking big) looking a little like a ummmm... well... DUH...a stovepipe.

I seen a 4" barrel ruger GP-101 that had 7 bullets stuck in the barrel.

The barrel was fine other than be stuffed full of lead and copper.

Also Since when does a Savage 110 and a Simmons scope go for $2000? Did I miss something here? Also the guy in the last picture was not from that gun as there was no blood anywhere in the shooting stall or on the rifle. Hoe did he face get all torn up?
BS!
Unless they were reloads that were severely under powered or old with no powder pressure? Why would anyone get to this point without trying to understand what happened anyway? I'm just trying to understand and not pointing fingers? Please let me know
