Re: savage 10 fp problems

Is it actually leaving a dimple in the primer, or is it just going 'click' when you pull the trigger?

Yes it does leave dimple on primer so dont know if its pin, headspace , tore bolt apart and everything looks fine , thought it might be bad lot of ammo but does same with other brands (even though i didnt wanna put them in not sure what would cause it , pressure problem maybe????

Did you by chance take the bolt apart and play with it *before* this problem started? Is the gun 100% factory, or did you (or anyone else) rebarrel it or disassemble anything?

Re: savage 10 fp problems

Okay. Just trying to establish the 'history' of the gun before we go too far down any particular path.

The 'it worked fine, then stopped' is the part that raises some flags.

Did you have any pierced or blown primers before when it was working? Its possible some bits of primer cup may have accumulated inside the bolt head (after being blown thru the firing pin hole) and may be causing problems.

Did the problem start *after* you changed stocks? It almost sounds like the new stock may be binding on the sear in some fashion causing it to hang up. I would think that when the firing pin lets go, it'd still have enough force to set off the primer but if something is dragging it could bleed enough energy off that there isn't enough left to set off the primer.
