Rem model 700 300wsm problem
I recently won on a GB auction a NEW REM MODEL 700 LSS in 300 WSM. I mounted and bore sighted my scope and went out to sight it in. I purchased a box of factory Winchester Super X 150 grn ammo to get on paper. Well..... After my first shot I could not lift the bolt. It felt like it was locked. I slowly applied more pressure and I managed to eject the spent round. The face of the cartridge was scraped from the bolt face ( it left a round circle ,I am assuming from the the ejector recess )The same thing occured on second shot. WHAT THE HECK!!! Is this a head space problem? Guy's I work with that reload said the rounds were over loaded. Put a micrometer on the neck and it has expanded .009 inches, is this too much? I am desperate for answers because I have a big hunting trip scheduled for next month. Plan on trying other ammo when I get a day off. Will send some pics of cases if I can get some decent ones. I would appreciate any info anybody may have. Thanks.
