Can someone tell me what happened to this round? It looks like it was crammed into the landings. It's 1 of 50 reloads. All the rounds measured the same length and all fired without fail. This was the 3rd round fired out of the 50. Sorry not the best pic.

How many times have you used the brass?

Any issues seating bullets?

What caliber?

First reload on this brass. It was factory loaded Remington brass that was salvaged. There were no seating issues noticed. .270 win.

I doubt it could grow enough on first sizing to reach lands. You shot all 50 rounds and only one looks like that?
With that damage how hard was it to extract? I am surprised if it was easy to remove and if it was then the damage happened after removal.

I don't know how it could happen in the chamber and be extracted. I'm with DStroud on this.

I wasn't shooting them. My son was at the range doing the shooting. He fired all 50 and this was the only one with issues. I inspected all the brass and this is the only one with a problem. He said he had no extraction problems.

Assume since its bolt it went from chamber to container that holds. If someone stepped on it and it was on a rock maybe


Did you use any chemical solvents on it?

does the chamber look okay?

If it's a factory rifle I wouldn't think it hit the lands as those have long chambers

I am guessing it was a hull that got crossways and was jammed into chamber trying to clear.

I think I agree with you dstroud, his rifle is notorious for the bolt sticking and not sliding open with ease. It's a POS Remington 7?? With a synthetic stock and a removable magazine. He keeps it behind the seat in his truck for varmints & hogs.
