a few weeks ago i was shooting off 40 remington core loks in my 300 mag for the brass and noticed 1 cartridge made the bolt hard to lift. reloaded the ammo and went hunting. shot a deer and had a hard time opening the bolt again. 17 of the reloads worked just fine. Primer was completly flat and the head had expanded .02 with an ejector mark on the head. resized the brass and another peice and filled them with water. weighed the cases and the expanded peice weighed 3 grains less than the other.
