Rem 7600 help

I bought a used Rem. 7600 carbine in 30.06 cal. a few months ago. I just put a new Redfield 2-7 scope on it (which by the way is way underpriced for what you get) and went today to shoot it in. When I was shooting on sandbags, after every shot it would eject the spent cartridge by itself. If I shot offhand the action would work about 1/6 of the way without ejecting the empty shell.
I did a Google search and believe it or not it seems to happen a lot with heavier bullets (I was shooting 180 gr. factory loads).
Anyone else have experience with this and should I be concerned, somewhat concerned, or very concerned? This is my first pumpgun and I just want to know.

All my Whelen pumps do it, had a 30-06 carbine that did that too. I never was concerned about it, faster second shot.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Not a problem. Mine do it as well. Recoil gets the action going.....after the bullet leaves barrel. Shoot it and enjoy. Great rifles.

No kidding !!

I think Winchester actually trademarked the "Speed Pump" phrase, as that was their advertising slogan for the Model 1300 pump shotgun. Its bolt comes unlocked and the pump starts rearward instantaneously upon firing.

Sounds like the OP's 7600 works the same way.
