There are a few pictures of small ring mausers that had catastrophic failures. The thing is we don't know exactly what happened, we just know the person who pulled the trigger had a bad day. Modern rifles can blow up as well, and have on occasion. Usually the majority of the time it's operator error, occasionally it isn't.

If the OP wants to shoot the rifle in question with factory ammo, he might want to look at the reduced recoil loads that Hornady and HSM offers. There might be others but I didn't look too hard, they will probably be extremely hard to find with the current ammunition situation.
