I have never reloaded any bullets and have just recently shot some reloaded ammo that a friend gave to me. the question that I have is about some .223 Rem. reloads that he gave me that don't fit into my guns chamber. When I put the bullets into the chamber and try to close the bolt the bullet hits the rifling in the barrel and the bolt can't close. Are these bullets salvageable or do I need to dispose of them ? I am ashamed to call my friend and tell him about it if he can't fix them. I would just as soon dispose of them then make him feel bad, after all he gave me the bullets anyway. I forgot to mention that the bullets are 75 grain speer soft points. He cooked them up for us to use on Axis deer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
