I'll try to be brief.

Haven't picked up my Savage 7mag since last year. I had three rounds in the removeable clip (stored separately). Put the clip in and all three rounds fired perfect (within 4 inches of each other).

Went to load the clip again and the spring worked but would not click into lower position when I loaded the rounds.

So I loaded them manually into the chamber and let the bolt push them in.

Fisrt shot was a hangfire. Next two the casings were either bulged or bulged/split when fired.

Gun is only 4 y/o and haven't ran more than 4 boxes of ammo through it.

I shoot Rem Core-locked ammo. What I was shooting today was bought last year about this time.

I shoot Rem Core-lokt ammo. The bulge/split are near the bottom at the belt (I believe it's called).

Is this an ammo problem or chamber problem????
I really don't want to shoot this gun again until I get the problems solved.

How did the bolt feel when locking it in place with the damaged rounds???

I would contact Remington immediately with the batch & run #'s and tell them what is going on.

Almost sounds like the hangfire round didn't get enough powder and the next ones got too much.

Quality isn't the best.

First three are ones that fired right.

Looks like 270 or 30-06 brass on the right.

I would suspect the .270, I doubt the 06 would go down the pipe.
