CORRECTION its Rem Ultra Mag (RUM)
Yeah I already returned the one unused box and actually sold the other 10 rounds to a friend, so it worked out.. as far as accuracy, i think it was pretty **** good. was shooting standing at about 150 yards and i got all ten shots within an 8 inch area. Was pleased with that, but after 10 rounds my shoulder was swearing at me hahaThat there, is some serious fire forming!! I'd think you quite lucky that nothing worse happened and as already mentioned I'd highly recommend you do not fire any more of those incorrect rounds in your rifle.
I would also call the manager or owner of that store and tell them of their terrible mistake. I'd further insist on a brand new box of the correct ammo to replace the incorrect ammo which might have caused you some serious harm.
yeah im thinking the little experiment is over hahaNormally when you fire a case into a grossly oversized chamber, the pressure goes down. But not always. I'm surprise that none of the brass ruptured - good thing it was new and not old and brittle.
Fascinating little experiment, but don't be in a hurry to repeat it!
will do! also, i do take responsibility upon myself for part of the error. I definitely should have been more alert to the fact there was a difference between the ammo and gun. I take this as a very fortunate learning experience for the future! I am very excited to own a rifle of this level, and i definitely understand now that it comes with quite a bit of responsibility on my part and vigilance. I appreciate the expertise that you all have and the advice! So I thank you all for that!Glad you got the proper ammo! Let us know how the good stuff shoots. Scotty
Yeah on the subject of reloading that shell, maybe i should start a new thread, but what would i need? Obviously primers, grain, the slug....not sure what machine i would need. Also, what kind of life expectancy can i get per shell? I hear some dont like to reload the ultra mag brass more than three times because of the power?With ammo for the 300RUM so expensive, now might be a good time to look into reloading? (if you don't already that is)
