I agree. 30-06 would have been catastrophic. But you can tell a big difference in the brass.

I made the same mistake with a 243 in a 358. The neck split in about 6 places and straitened out. Sounded like a 22 mag when it went off.

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

Could be 7MM Mauser.

I mentioned that on the General Forum thread about this..............
I walked into a ammo shop once and asked for a box of 7 mil ammo, the guy bagged it and I paid him and walked out, got all the way home to find 7mm Mauser, not 7mm rem mag. I should have been more specific, he should have known enough to ask, but it happens.

Saw a guy on FB selling a 7mm Rem Mag with 2 boxes of 7mm wby ammo. I sent him a PM to let him know, so he could pull the ammo.

50 cents? lol.
Either way .280 or 7MM Mauser. Either one shoots a 7MM bullet. The .270 would go down the barrell but it would rattle a little bit. ;\)
Thank God it wasn't a .30 Caliber, that could of been nasty if it had chambered.

I am curious as to how the incorrect shells got extracted from the chamber???

I doubt it happened by just opening the bolt and it shucked them out???? That should have been a clear sign after the first one, something was wrong......................

Not to mention, if you saw the first shell in that condition, Why on God's green earth would you drop a second one down the tube without investigating first.

Now I am curious as to why he is not posting a reply with the answer to the question...................What caliber were those cases???? Really!!!!!!!

.270 it is. Funny thing is I don't even own a 270. The box had six 270 rounds and the rest were 7mags.

Only thing I can figure is I bought a box of ammo that somebody threw 270 ammo in to make a whole box and then returned it. Box says 7mm mag. Unbelieveable!!! I would've either bought it at BPS or Wal Mart.

Serious lesson learned- Check the ammo- don't trust the box.

Thank you Jesus.

Now- am I safe to shoot the gun or should I have it checked????
