According to the description, the gun "froze." I'd say that something froze inside the barrel. That barrel split is within a fraction of an inch of having completely split in two.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

It split well back into the chamber! Someone is probably missing a hand if they're still alive after that. The barrel looks like it's marked 30/06 and 308 NORM. .308 Norma case length is 0.065" longer than .30-06, and without looking at drawings to see where the shoulder is, this is what I think. If it was a .30-06 re-chambered to .308 Norma, then someone shot .30-06 ammo in it, it would have excessive headspace, and if not it would still have lots of room all around the body of the case. The .300 H&H magnum size bolt could possibly feed .30-06, I don't know, but if it did, the bullet and neck of the cartridge would hold it in the chamber. And .30-06 SAAMI maximum pressure is even higher than .308 Norma magnum, which wouldn't help the situation.

I would NOT want to be holding on to that thing when it went "BOOM"!
The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

I wouldn't want to be standing NEXT to it either!

And that's why you should always have clean underwear in your range bag!  :o

Funny thing is.   In each of our vehicles we have an emergency bag.   The premise is we, and all other motorist are stranded on the Interstate for the next 24hrs.  this happens in ATL.  And it could happen for reasons other than ice.  Anyway the priority is "comfort".  And yes there's 2 pair of underwear, 2 pair of socks and toilet paper, among other things.

Good plan!!!  I don't have any clothes in my vehicle unless it's winter and I have cold weather gear...but that's going to change!

Indeed.
I don't get into that area often these days, but a few years ago we found ourselves going  through there on the way to Piedmont hospital ten times in two weeks.....and EVERY trip there was a huge traffic snag in the McDonough area on I-75. One was so bad that they were still cleaning up wrecked cars on our return trip home.
Since then I have taken to keeping bottled water, wet-wipes and all the sundry things one should keep in a go-bag...and clothes.
Also any time we leave on a trip that might find us gone for more than six hours or potentially overnight we stock up on road snacks like jerky and chips and non-melty stuff.

Even in the non-threatening circumstance of an overly enthusiastic meal, one might need a change of shirts.  8)  ;D  ;D

Here's the "Car Kit".  Among the unique things:

A Silcock key, since this is along the lines of being stuck 24hrs in an urban environment, this key would be useful to turn on outside water at commercial buildings.   
Coins to operate vending machines.
Cigarettes for trading fodder.

Things to keep you comfortable more than true survival.

Given time there are things in the car that can also be taken with us, including additional tourniquite, bandages, spreads/towels and tools.

The water key is a good idea I'd have never thought of for that reason. I have, as a passing thought, pondered having one in a tool box for access to water for an overheating vehicle.

To the bag I'd add electrical tape as well...... works well with gauze as flexible waterproof bandage.

For the vehicle I also bought one of those battery jump boxes that are way smaller than the traditional jump box. It'll jump up to an 8.0L gas or 6.0L diesel engine and also has charging ports for USB charging.
Also along the portable power line of thought, most all of the leading battery powered tool lines have 120vac power supplies that work off their standard 20v tool batteries. While I might not carry this in all situations, there are some where it might be feasible.
