Default 700 Sendero ejection problems.

My friend has a Remington 700 Sendero Stainless Fluted rifle, using the Federal ammo it ejects just fine. Using the Remington ammo the shell does not eject after firing. Using calipers, the rim on the remington cases are about .003 to .006" smaller than the Federal cases. I did get a case with the .003" smaller rim to eject, but out of 30 rounds only 4 cases were less than .005" smaller than the Federal. Is this a problem with the remington ammo or should this variation and smaller diameter rim be acceptable and still function in the rifle? Is there a problem with the ejector claw on the bolt?

Thanks,

Without seeing the rifle and reading what you have written, there seems to be a problem with the extractor "not the ejector" the extractor pulls the round from the chamber, this is the ring part that is rivited in the bolt sholder, the ejector is the spring loaded pin that protrudes through the face of the bolt, when the round is drawn out of the chamber the ejector is pushing on the cartridge until it clears the action and the case is then flipped off the side of the extractor and out of the action. This set-up works on all cartridges, there could be a small piece of the extractor broke off causing this to happen. I would recomend takeing it to your local gunsmith to have it checked out. The extractor costs around 20.00 and labor should be anywhere around 35.00 to 50.00 depending on the gunsmith!.

devil dog, you are correct on it being the extractor not the ejector. I looked at the extractor I could not see anything that looked broken.

Unfortunatly it doesnt take much for this extractor to fail, try pulling the bolt out of the rifle and put one of the fired cases in the bolt face, this will be a little hard to explain, so bear with me!. With the fired case pushed into the bolt face compressing the ejector"useing your index finger" you should not be able to pull rim out of the extractor, if it comes out,the extractor needs to be replaced because it is not getting enough hold on the cartridge. Try it out and let me know what you come up with.

If you have to replace it you might want to look into a Sako style extractor.

I will try to take a better look at it this weekend. How is the Sako style extractor different?

The Sako extractor gets a better bite on the case, the bolt needs to be modified to use it though.

I had the same problem with a 700. I sent it back to Remington, and they fixed it and mailed it back. Do the same and save yourself gunsmith fees. If the trigger has been adjusted, however, be sure to remove it prior to mailing it to them: they will remove your modifed trigger and send you a stock one back b/c of "liability" !!!!
