    One possible reason for the difference in volume is that (from what I've heard) "military" brass is thicker than "commercial" brass.

    That has been my experience.
    It has a thicker web to prevent tear out during difficult extraction.
    I made .243 cases from some ADI 7.62s and had to reduce the loads a smidgen. Inside neck turned I may add.

    Default 223 tight

    Hey there, IMHO Rem 700s are made to a price and no two actions are made the same. There have been plenty that i have worked on where even the barrel threads have been out and i've had to re cut them to get some semblance of squareness.

    Check the rear of the bolt lugs, you may see some rough areas that have been 'galled' by two metal surfaces rubbing against each other.

    May also be that the action is a bit out of true and the lugs aren't meeting square, could be a number of things, but with a 700 in 223 it would be very easy to fix!

    Cheers H

    Yes, please check the serial number of your Rem. 700. It seems that some, not all, have a habit of discharging all by themselves at the most inappropriate moment. The best outcome could be the urgent need to change underwear, the worst.....a visit to the hospital or the morgue.

    Remington is supplying replacement trigger assemblies and having them fitted by qualified gunsmiths. There should be someone near you that will do the job on their behalf.

    In Port Macquarie, for example, for the period noted by Remington, we handled 17 Remington 700s. Of those, 12 were affected by the recall notice. This is not an isolated event and the odds are not all that good.
