I recently purchased a Remy 700 SPS Tactical in .223 but when I try and chamber a round it requires excess mechanical force to close the bolt, and takes a slice off the side of the base rim of the chambered case. I returned it to the RFD who blamed steel cased ammo even though I had tried numerous types of both steel and brass through it and all were affected. It appeared the extractor was to blame.
They replaced the extractor and I have purposefully only tried brass cases but it is still not right.
Anyone else had the same problem?
I can't see how Remington would make a rifle that could only use a certain type of ammo, And if they did, then the customer should be made aware if this at the point of purchase.
Not happy right now!
