Did one of the guys ask if he got the elk?

Sure that hunter has a little bit of a flinch.  I know I would.

Are you guys sure that was an A-Bolt?
 I know some Sakos were recently  recalled for the barrels doing that on a regular basis- bad batch of blank steel.  They weren't obstructed either, just normal shooting with factory loads...

Never under estimate the value of a roll of masking tape.

  The video's quality is really poor on my monitor, so it's hard for me to tell what it is.

Do you usually put a piece of tape over your muzzle?  I never have.  Just always careful with my muzzle and keep it out of the dirt etc.

its a great measure of insurance on a hunt like that, its a strong recommendation for hunters in alaska, canada, africa etc. to do this before entering the field, to prevent such events from happening.

 I'm with Pyro!
 I always tape the muzzle while on a hunt, IF I remember to!
   
I've had to make a "cleaning rod" from a willow sapling more than once to clean barrels plugged with mud or snow.
 Taping the muzzle is much faster and easier!   Thunbs Up

I've shot 100 yard groups with the muzzle taped, (one layer plastic electrical tape) with my 30-06, and there was no discernable change in POI vs. the untaped muzzle.
 
 ...If anyone is worried about that being an issue...
