    just got a new remington 700 sps. the bolt is too hard to close on a loaded chamber, and the pos wont eject the spent brass, common problem? 270 wsm.:confused:

    Another Short Mag with feeding problems! Not to sound triumphant, but I've messed with about ten of them: various brands. Two (different brands) had problems similiar to what you describe. One had to go back to the factory twice to get it right. You will find Remington very cooperative about fixing your gun. Get it back to them ASAP, and don't have anybody mess with it beforehand.

    Then I'd sell it and get a gun chambered in a tried and true cartridge that doesn't ride on hype.

    Not to mention it has the added feature at no extra cost: instantly turning a repeater into a single shot.

    (the above tossed in with the sure and certain knowledge sheepdip can take a ribbing)

    Show me a picture of a wild pig in Oregon, killed with a previously malfunctioning Short Mag, and you be da man! (Don't even have to prove the gun cycled for a second shot.)
