Gun Discharges While Chambering Round
New Rifle, Target shooting, round number 21, when chambering discharges. The good: I wasn't pointing at anyone. The bad: I was in my house shooting out of the sliding glass door. The door survived but you wouldn't believe what a muzzle blast can do to a ceiling! Of course the bullet didn't stop there, after entering the attic it exited the front of the house just below the peak then blasted into the overhang and through my brand new metal roof! As hard as I tried to recreate (without bullet in chamber) the discharge, by shoving bolt forward, the gun seems sound. I'm wondering how to approach the manufacture on this. I should add the first thing I did upon purchasing was to lighten the trigger (model 70). Easy adjustment, still stiffer than stock Browning A-Bolt trigger. I would guess about 4lbs. Any suggestions?
