    What could be happening?

    Guys I noticed on Sunday that my 300winmag was not ejecting rounds like it usually does. It was extracting the round properly but leaving the empty round laying on top of the next live round in the magazine rather than kicking it out. What could be causing this?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Have a look at the bolt head and check its not full of crap.

    Check ejector is not siezed, should be able to push it in and check the spring is not weakened or broken.

    Just got my bolt down for a closer inspection wih a magnifying glass and fucking hell there is shit loads happening that I am not happy with. This rifle is new this year and has only had three hundred rounds through it and check out the pitting and the broken tip to the ejector. I will need to get this sorted but before I do what has caused this to happen?

    Yeh I have just sent an email with the picture to the importer. The rifle has had 160 rounds of Federal factory ammo through it and 140 reloads that are only doing 2670 fps (so not über hot). I am gutted but at least thanks to Spudattack I am on to the problem.

    Rushy is that the first time you've looked at the bolt head in 300 rounds? You should be checking after each session and cleaning it proper mate. Even with factory loads your going to accumulate debris in there and as it builds up it has an effect on performance and operation...

    Yeh I noticed those. It is a fucking worry because if you had of asked me last week I would have told you that the rifle was a pearler. I am looking forward to the feedback of the uber techo's on here as I wouldn't expect to see that sort of damage on a 303 that had been used extensively trough WW1 & WW2 and been an in use cullers rifle since then.

    It has been well cleaned after every session (tooth brush, plastic pick, rag and then rem oil on a rag) but with my old eyes I have never noticed a problem. It wasn't until I ran the magnifying glass over it this morning that I saw the issue. The not ejecting problem only happened on Sunday.

    I need to go see the dentist, what do you charge? On second thoughts one that can see may be a better option

    Hard to tell from the picture but it looks almost like you are getting flame cutting around the firing pin hole? Are you getting blown primers?
