Extractor and Feed problems on Sendero
I have a Remington Sendero SF II in a .300 Win Mag, and I am having a few issues with it, which keep popping up at the worst possible times. I bought the gun brand new, and the only thing I have changed about it, is swapping out the stock.
The extractor... I have put about 40 or so round through this thing, and have had 4 failure to extract. I originally thought it was because I was cycling the bolt too slowly because I didn't want the spent case to go flying when I was at the range, but when I was up in AK on an alpine Blacktail hunt, I shot at a deer and as I cycled the bolt, I noticed that the case did not eject. Thankfully I dusted the deer, so I did not need a follow up. But still, that would have been a bummer.
The feed...Mule deer hunting in WA, took a quick kneeling shot at a deer, and as I cycled the bolt, the case ejected, but it did not push the next round. The best way I could describe it, is the back of the round was slightly pushed down, and the business end of it was pushed up at too great of an angle, causing it to bind. And yes I did pull the bolt all the way back. Thankfully that deer was downed too, but you can see where this could be an issue.
So my question to all of you, is what are my options? Should I give Remington a shout and tell them they screwed the pooch, or would something like swapping out the extractor do the trick? What are good options if that is the case? And what the heck should I do about the feeding issue???
