Savage 7mm rem mag
 
My friend took my rifle and put a regular 7mm through it. The casing exploded in the barrel and got stuck. I tapped it out using a oak rod. Is there any way my barrel could be damaged from the smaller round? Should I take it in and get it pressure tested? Or are they a tough barrel

Take it to a smith and get it checked. He very likely tore the hell put of the riflings and the throat.

"Should I take it in and get it pressure tested?"

There is no such thing for a barrel. There was no bullet stuck in the barrel was there? Just the brass case was in the chamber?

Yea just the case stuck.

A 7mm is a rem mag. What are u talking about, you say a 7mm then u say its a mag well of course it is. So is it a 7mm or a 7mm ultra or 7mm weatherby mag.
