Rem 700 help

I was sighting in my 700 and shot several shots. The last shot I felt a slight sting in the face. The bolt would not open. Took 2 of us to pry it open. The case was stuck to the bolt. I had to pry it off. The extractor was broke.

Im not sure if this was caused by the reloads I was shooting (my late father loaded them in 1998)or if the extractor just broke allowing the case to get stuck and not allow the action to open freely.

Is it possible for the extractor to break and cause this?

Re: Rem 700 help

sounds like you might have gotten a hot load. 700 action is pretty strong. what caliber is the rifle?

Re: Rem 700 help

I would say no! I would quit using those reloads. Did the bullet exit the barrel?

I think the load was hot.I would toss the rest for safety.At least it is an easy fix.Make sure the metal isn't in your face.Small bits don't always bleed.

Re: Rem 700 help

It may have been hot. Yes bullet exited hit about 4 inches high...Lol.

It is 30.06.

I have several boxes of them. I believe the load was 60gr of 30 31 shooting a 150 Ballistic tip. Im not home but I think I recall that was the powder load.

I hate to have to pull the bullets on all those rounds

Re: Rem 700 help

Regardless of what you think they are pull em and dump the powder or toss them. You blew a primer MAJORLY. It's no laughing matter. Coulda been the gun or your eye you damaged. DO NO shoot any more of those.

Re: Rem 700 help

I have to agree with the others, the result of "warm load" or an obstruction in the barrel. The extractor breaking is most likely a result trying to get the bolt open, it wouldn't cause the problem.

At this point you'll need to have a 'smith to have it checked, disassemble the bolt to clean out what was blown inside it, clean up the bolt face, replace the extractor and possibly the ejector and or ejector spring.

Oh, don't shoot any more of that ammo!
