View Full Version : Problems With Browning BAR 7mm Magnum

November 2, 2009, 07:22 PM
Ive got a BAR 7mm mag and it shoots amazing always on target never jams always ejects and takes another shell. i started shooting it again this season and it started not wanting to rack another round all the way. i oiled it up and cleaned it and it started working right again. now its not wanting to eject the live round if i dont fire it. at the end of the day i wanna unload and put up for the night and its jamming almost. the bolt isnt turning to bring the bullet out. once i get it out the projectile is chewed up a lil bit around the base and the cartridge has dings in it. anybody have any ideas?

Did you clean the chamber well? Sounds like you could have a thin layer of rust, etc. holding the case.

Take it to a Browning dealer who is also a gunsmith. The Browning website can direct you to such a dealer.

Just wondering are you reloading for it?
