Look like it's possible that you had an OOB (out of battery detonation). You might have a carbon ring in the chamber, that fails to seat the round properly. Try rotating a chamber brush with a drill and carbon remover mixture.
Bingo: Per above, then try a different known ammo mfg (Federal not Remington) and if that works you can try your original stuff. If it works with Federal and not the other, pitch it.

And agree, give the criticisms a rest, OP put in non needed info, but he got to the heart of the issue and listed gun and ammo, sheese, that far more than we often get on a first post.

Mild simply say TMI not related and good enough for better post in the future.
