Nephew called me. I ran out of the ammo I liked in my 270, says he. It was 140 gr CoreLokts, so I went, he says, and bought some 6.5x55. I asked if he had a new rifle in that caliber, and he said "no". So I said "what are you telling me?" Well, he said I tried them in my 270, but they locked up and now the bolt is kinda locked. I asked if he had tried to shoot that ammo in his 270. I could not believe my ears. He did try, and now the bolt was stuck and "what do I do"?

Whew! I said to take it to a gunsmith and do not fiddle with it any more.

Oh my God! He's in his 30's and married with kids. He's been hunting for 20 years. I just cannot imagine that he would do something that clueless. Should I tell his Dad?

I have never thought of the kid as dim witted, but this stupid move leaves me nearly speechless.

If his Dad is Bill Engvall, then will probably already know.

If he posted on here, from what I have seen this past week I'm thinking a good number of folks would explain how that is a good idea.

Couple of years ago, I was at the gun range sighting in. The guy next to me was shooting a .270 and Rem 7mm mag. He accidently loaded a .270 round into the 7 mag. Blew the floor plate off and busted the forearm. Range Officer asked him to take a break and come back another day.

I have people shoot 380s in 9mm and 9mm in 40S&W relatively frequently. Even had one person try to shoot 9mm in a 357 mag.

I'd tell somebody, before he hurts himself.
