Remington's junk ammo
 
3 Attachment(s)
I went shooting today to sight in my deer rifle. I used to use Remington cor lokt but that changed today when I fired this round and I noticed smoke coming out from around my bolt. The primer was blown back so hard that It left a ring the I can't seem to remove. And the round also failed to eject.

I've found Remington ammo to be a bit underpowered, but never anything like that:eek:

Did you buy the ammo new? Looks like an overcharged round to me.

Ya me and my cousin that I went shooting with figured that was the case... An yeah I bought the round brand new a few months ago an pulled it out of the box the day I fired it

I'd contact Remington and tell them what happened and give them the lot number on the box.

I would call Remington ASAP.

Remington is recalling some of the core lokt ammo. Maybe you got one of those.

What caliber? I have had a couple 'duds' out of my last box of 30-06

I'm sorry but one round can't make me call a companies ammo junk. Any more than haing one good shot make me say it kicks the llama's ass. Especially with ammo makers working double time trying to keep us and the feds in ammo.
But I would make sure they knew what was up.

Extractor is jacked. The spring is probably boogered up. Contact Rem.
