Re: Rem700 bolt question
typical remmy quality control. ive yet to see one with minimum head space mind, ive seen several where the no go guage would go.
wouldn't surprise me if:
A. the ejector spring was to long and the plunger couldnt depress fully,
B. the hole for the plunger isn't dored deep enough
C. the plunger is slightly long.
D. the Extractor has sharp edges to it and is shearing brass.(infact i did an SSG bolt knob for a guy last week with a Rem 700 in 243win, there was so much brass in the ejector plunger hole that the damn thing was stuck in depressed, i first though the owner had removed the spring as he wanted to catch the cases and remove em by hand. no, just full of brass.
E. chamber of centre line
F. bore of centre line
etc etc, good thing is with a remmy 700 its possible to fix all the niggly things, and the factory barrels make good tomato stakes in the green house, or are also good for breaking the ice in the horse drinking trough. they also make a usable jack handle, and are also handy for planting runner bean seeds.
