wonder if we can get someone with quikload to see how much psi 40gr of titegroup in a 7mm-08 really is.
Figuring a Sierra 150-gr bullet, 40 grs of Titegroup in a 7mm-08 works out to about 216555 PSI!!!

No wonder the rifle suffered a catastrophic failure!

Glad the OP's injuries weren't more serious. This is a good reminder that in this business, one little mistake can be catastrophic.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
