Re: Help Trouble shoot ' Click then boom'

i agree you need a gunsmith to look at it, depending on hourly rates and the price of a new bolt, one might be cheaper than the other, i personally would buy a bolt, because a gunsmith might tell you the problem is the bolt and you have to pay for his labor and the part, im not a gunsmith but i used to be a proffesional technition (mechanic) and its always cheaper at least on cars to buy the part and pay for installation than pay $100 for a diag then the part and installation, but on cars the list of parts that cause trouble is miles longer than on a bolt gunso thats not always on option, and with a car if you know enough to pinpoint the troublesome part you usually can do it yourself so, this probably wasnt the best analogy, but hey im not a poet im a wrenchturner

I'd try the bolt first, here is an article on how to do that.

It may be the trigger assembly also. It really is hard to say what the problem might be.

I was thinking it was a "hang fire" problem after reading that thread I linked to, but your load doesn't look light.

I think a gunsmith may be your best bet.

It's pretty easy to take your Remington bolt apart, even if you don't have the Klein Endorst tool. The link above shows a pic of how it can be accomplished but no instructions. Send me a message with your email address and I'll send you an email with pics to walk you through it.

Check you loads,my 6.5 dakota will do the very same thing if I try to reduce the loads . You need to have about 80 percent of the case full or this could happen. Try going to a slower powder and filling the case more. larry

Re: Help Trouble shoot ' Click then boom'

the thing that makes me belive its a mechanical fault not loading error is the mark he says is on all of the cases outside of the primer on the rim, if it goes in fine and comes out with that mark the pin has to be hitting it, right?

So if it goes click boom its hiiting the rim and either sliding or bouncing back on the primer setting it off.
