I had the same problem with a Remington 700 rifle. Just a click, no dent on the primers. It turned out to be--believe it or not--that the forend stock screw was too tight and prohibited the bolt from coming to a complete lock. I don't think your 300 has stock or takedown screws...but it might be something just as simple.
