No injuries just shock. Thank God lol
Seems obviously pressure-related. Either the round was loaded too hot, or some sort of partial obstruction at the chamber mouth? Maybe bolt didn't fully lock or high primer?
Glad PSA and Spikes worked with me and took care of me. Psa couldn't verify issue and I kept bugging them on the status so they sent me a replacement. Spikes was easy.

Holy geez, I have a rifle I built up with the same parts, even the MI handguard.

The 16" SS barrel did not show very good accuracy first time out, so it may see different parts before long.

Contact psa. They will check it out and replace if needed. Just expect to take a few weeks for turnaround
