Default 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?

this is exactly why you should never lend firearms to friends! especially those who would use improper ammo!

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.
