AR-15 Barrel Kaboom



It seems like there have been a lot of guns experiencing catastrophic failures (a.ka.a kabooms) recently, or maybe people are just posting about it online lately. A member over at M4Carbine.net recently posted about a Daniel Defense range rifle’s barrel splitting. Apparently the customer who was shooting the range rifle was using factory new HPR .223 ammo (not reloads like most kabooms) and luckily only received minor wounds. Looks like it could have been a squib.
