bolt problems

Well I had my first reloading screw up today....just an FYI...lilgun and h4350 makes for q hot load to say the least.....any how I did some load work to play with seating depth on my accuracy load and the first shot locked the bolt popped the primer and also popped out the ejector/case holder on the bolt (savage model 12lrp in .260) I pulled the bolt out put the spring back in folowed by the bb and the ejector piece. I shot three rounds into .4 with another group of loads I had previously made up but the empty doesn't eject from the chamber it just falls into the action once it gets to the position it should eject. Any ideas?

Re: bolt problems

Sounds like you may have broke the ejector pin or the spring underneath.
