You get what you pay for?
as Red Foreman would say!
i would like to know exactly what happened here. i have a model 700 22-250, and it is a nail driver at 300 yards. has went through hundreds of rounds with no flaws.... looks more like bad ammo, first round stove piped..? dunno.,
I too have had a couple 700 varients. great, accurate, reliable rifles. this one must have been defected or bad ammo.
this really looks like one round stove piped at the end of the barrel and the guy didn't know it. i have seen this happen, a buddy of mine had a savage 6mm and one of the factory rounds (remmington) actually came out of the box with no powder in it! just a primer and bullet. of course there wasn't much sound or recoil and he ejected the case and shook his head and fed another round in it not knowing that the bullet was still lodged near the end of his $700 fluted barrel. this picture is just about the same as what his looked like.
I've fired remington model 700 once or twice and fired over 120 rounds and never had any problems with the rifle.
Somthin sure pluged up that barrel alright!
Sorry for the gun.
Looks like a "squib" load, then fireing it one more time, done the trick! No "stovepipe" with the bolt rifle. Now please tell us what happened.
and fired a round.
from APOLLO 13...O LORD, PLEASE DON'T LET ME FUCK UP
thats what i pray when i go shooting
