Not sure if this should be in this section.
Any one had any dealings with overcharged factory load. I fired a 100gr .243win Fiocchi factory load and was surprised at the recoil. Upon attempting to lift the bolt and having never fired a overpressure cartridge I was suprised at how difficult it was to lift the bolt. Upon inspection of the case the primier had a black ring around it and the case base from the bolt extractor was shiny and the bolt face has some slithers of brass. I checked the rest of the cartridges and found that when shaking another 2 were so overcharged that unlike the others I could not hear the powder rattle in the cartridge and the weight difference was noticeable.
I now regret taking the rest of the cartridges straight back to the shop but as I'm off on a paid stalk soon I need some cartridges. The guy at the shop tried to phone the Fiocchi rep but had no joy.
Could the over pressure have damaged the gun and should I get it checked. I also checked the bolt and on the face around the firing pin is a black ring, which I can't say for sure, if it was there before or not. I gave it a wipe with cleaner and black ring remained. I have a friend with a Browning A bolt who I have asked to check his.
I will be contacting Fiocchi 1st thing Monday.
Gratful for your view.
