7mm Rem Mag

Hello all.


I have a 7mm Rem Mag Browning BAR semi-auto which is showing ejection problems after the first shot and I just can't find why it does that... Any suggestions?

I have got it checked by a gunsmith who replaced the recoil spring (with a lesser strength spring), but nothing has changed. It is still shooting the first shot well but then the cartridge gets stock in the chamber and keeps the second bullet to move.

Ejection or extraction?
by: Rick

If the spent cartridge is being left in the chamber you have an extraction problem. You may need to have your chamber polished. An easy way to tell would be 1. Use a flashlight and look at it,it should be nice and smooth with very little to no scrapes or 2. is take a new factory round and polish up the brass to make it nice and shiny and then fire it... It should come out almost as shiny.. If it looks very dull and scratched up I would start looking to polishing the chamber.. And as others have said check the extractor, extractor spring and the ejector. Its common on the heavier magnums to break ejectors and extractors. And I would have your gunsmith replace that lighter recoil spring with an original or extra power spring . we see it all the time in waterfowl guns where a worn out or under powered recoil spring will keep it from running properly

Sounds like your ejector is worn or broken also check your extractor as it or its spring may be damaged or dirty. As always clean clean clean.
