Default Remington's junk ammo

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

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

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

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

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.
