I was sighting in my Reminton SPS Model 700, 7mm Rem. Mag. and had an odd situation happen. I was using Winchester Supreme Accubond 160gr Bonded bullets.
First couple of shots was fine. On the 5th shot I went to eject the cartridge and the bolt would lift up but would not slide back to eject the cartridge. Was like it was stuck. Finally got the bolt to slide back and eject the cartridge.
I loaded the gun and the used the bolt to eject all the cartridges that I had just put in and everything went fine. Put a bullet in and fired again. Bolt would lift up but not slide back again to eject the cartridge. Finally got it to slide back with alot of work.
I am thinking that the cases are expanding and getting stuck. I have shot these rounds before with no problem. This was a new box that I hadn't shot from before. Do you think it is a bad batch of shells? I am going to the gunsmith Tues. when they open. Also going to call Remington and Winchester to see what they say.
What do you all think?
