I was at the range yesterday with my son (yes same one who found the bullet inside the 223 case in a different thread). He has a Savage M12 chambered in 22-250 and had used my equipment to load up some rounds. As I am sitting two lanes down from him testing some loads in my own 22-250 I just picked up ( a very sweet Cooper M22 varmiter, but that's for another thread another time). At any rate, as we are firing away, in between shots, I hear a distinctive "click" from my left where my son is sitting. I look over at him, he looks back at me and kind of give him the "WTF look". When he un-chambers the round, there is no impact on the primer from the firing pin... we talk about it for a minute and tell him to try it again. This time the round fires, but the pin makes a nice round hole all the way through the primer. Two more rounds fire ok, but the primer strikes seem heavy. Mind you this is after flawlessly firing about 80 rounds from the same lot of brass, primers, and powder mix. I don't know that much about Savage rifles, but did some Google searches and found some talk about head space issues causing similar results, but it seems weird that it just did this on the last few rounds. Everything in the bold and chamber seems to be tight. No evidence of high pressure firing on the cases... Thoughts?
