New rem CDL problem

I recently purchased a new rem. 700 CDL in 300 win mag. Went to the range today with a box of federal 180 grain power shocks to see how it was going to shoot, rounds chambered fine, but extraction was difficult, one round required a cleaning rod to tap out and a buddy pulling on the bolt. Brass is really shiny just above the belt, same problem with my reloads. Gun is clean, primers are not flattened, bottom of the brass is not smeared, bullets aren't touching the lands. At a loss, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: New rem CDL problem

You might have a tight chamber. I would call a reputable smith and ask them, if they suggest it, I'd send it back to Remington with some of the spent brass to show them what's happening with a note explaining what's going on. Then ask them to fix the problem. Give them the model number of the ammo you are shooting and they can probably figure it out.

If you don't have many weeks to wait, ask your local reputable smith to get him to take a look at it and tell you what's wrong.

a tight chamber would more effect chambering then it would extraction. Id bet theres some roughness in the chamber. My 7 stw did the same when i got it and it made a trip back to rem and was cured.

I took a fired brass that I could get to chamber and opened and closed the bolt about a dozen times, when I took the brass out it was deeply scratched in two places half and inch above the belt. You guys were right about the rough chamber and it will be on its way to Remington Monday.
Thanks for the replies.

My brother just bought a 7mm rem mag and he cleaned the gun, then went and shot it you could hardly lift the bolt and couldnt extract the fired case, turns out he had a build up of oil in the chamber then when the case expanded when fired it got stuck due to the oil, cleaned it out then it was fine.
