Curtis, that's terrible. Do you know if it was overloaded or what exactly happened. Allen

Curtis, I can't tell from the pictures but smokeless powder is only approved to be used in Savage models 10ML-I and 10ML-II. 4759 is the powder of choice for a lot of older guns or hand guns that require lower pressures. A general rule of thumb is using 40% of the recommended black powder load. This is based on the original black powder loading specs. I REPEAT DO NOT USE THIS FORMULA FOR ANY OTHER BLACK POWDER GUNS OTHER THAN THE TWO LISTED ABOVE. For example, the .38-55, 40% of 55 = 22 grains of SR4759. You should always start a couple of grains lower and work your way up. This accident looks to me like there was an object stuck in the barrel. The same thing happened to me with a 12 gauge. A wadding didn't clear the barrel and stuck. Hope the best for the gentleman.

don't have any pictures of another one a browning .30-06 , heavy wet snow and the 13 yr old dipped the muzzle into the snow, temp dropped 20 deg. and the snow froze in the barrel, split the barrel from the muzzle to the a banana.... shook the kid up but didn't hurt him

This was posted by the shooter in the album....

Not sure why this happened....i was shooting 42.5 grains of IMR 4759 with 250 grain barnes bullet, if you own one or know someone who owns one, be aware it can happen.

Yeah looks very much like an obstruction in the barrel. When I was doing hunters ed stuff we shoved a 20 guage shell into a 12 guage then loaded the 12 gauge properly and pulled the trigger (the whole rig was tied to a tree so no one was physically up against it) and it made a very similar looking split barrel. If I'd have to guess either 1. he didnt pack bullet against the powder properly or 2. had something shoved into the end of the barrel. I'm not 100% sure not packing it properly would do that but given the way pressures work inside the barrel its very possible.

I shoot a savage muzzle loader right like that gun and love the gun I don't use use my shot gun any more since I got that mussle loader I would be very interested in knowing just what happened there. Best of luck to that gentleman I guess those photos will flash in front of me for a while every time I go to shoot that gun.
