.300 Win Ultra Mag question

Just bought a Savage Arms Model 116. takes a .300 Win Ultra Mag. When i bought it, the ammo they sold me was .300 Win Mag. So of course being all excited to shoot the new gun, took it to the range and took care of ten rounds. They loaded in just fine, chambered, fired, and the case ejected just like a text book case. Afterwards, i was looking at the casings versus an unfired round, and they had expanded ever so slightly. Hence why i am posting on here. Is it ok to continue firing these rounds in this gun? Thanks!

That there, is some serious fire forming!! :eek: 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... look down around the belt on that brass... You should count your lucky stars.
+1 !! That is actually what impressed(??) me most! :eek: I cannot believe the stretch there, without a separation. Thank goodness there was not a problem! ;)
