A Swedish military testing facility performed the following tests on several different rifles.
  • All rifles were 30-06 caliber
  • A bullet was lodged 10cm from chamber throat
  • The gun was then loaded with a round and fired
The guns exhibited different degrees of damage. Some much more extreme than others. The website is in Swedish but the videos are worth thousands of words in any language.

Swedish stuck bullet testing

It may change what you think of some rifles.

Cool test and you're right the results sure are an eye opener. Thanks Leo.

Thanks Leo the European makes faired much better than the American makes. The Rem 700 would have blown your hand off.

You know, it doesn't have to be a bullet lodged in the barrel. Snow, or mud would do the same thing. Pays to be careful and remember the power you're holding in your hands.
