Default Pew, pew,pew, BOOM

I just took my brand new Marlin 795 out to the range for the first time today, Shot about 150 rounds of Federal round nose bulk through it and had several stove pipes but all fired fine. Then I was like pew pew pew BOOM concussion blast to my face. My buddy sitting on my right was blasted in his face with powder. After inspection I noticed the casing still in the chamber and the whole back end of the casing was blown out. I cleared the chamber and checked the barrel and proceeded to send rounds down range without anymore problems. What the heck happened? Casing failure, issue with the gun? I was thinking squib maybe but never experienced one so
