    Thank you for allowing me to join this site.

    I have recently purchased a 700 7mm magnum rifle, second hand. I was told it is 4-5 years old, but I haven't sent the serial number to Remington to verify. I was given 60-70 rounds of ammo with it. When I first fired it, it was awesome with no issues. I took it home, and the bolt jammed not allowing for extraction. There is some W W Super(?), ballistic and soft tip; also r-p(?). I'm not very familiar with this. Is it extra powder that is causing the jam? I cleaned the rifle, but did not take the bolt apart. Any help is appreciated. I also just bought 154 grain SST ammo, which I have yet to fire. Thanks for the feedback.

    Sounds like a dirty chamber, scrub the hell out it. WW is Winchester ammo rp is Remington ammo and should function just fine.

    Don’t know of any +p rifle ammo, Hornaday makes superformance ammo that’s a little hotter but it won’t hurt a 700 Remington.

    Are you sure that the ammo is factory and not reloads? Do you have the Cleaning Tool for the bolt lug area in the receiver?
