Default Browning BLR .300WM

Browning blr in .300wm. hard to eject. Cannot rechamber the fired brass.




Does it need to go back to Browning?

New. Three different brands all do the same.

then yes i would send gun back, sounds like a chamber spec is off(that is if a new gun), if a used gun, it could be from wear/damages from previous owner

a GOOD gun smith can also check things out for you too, but if a new gun, it could void a warranty if someone else works on it, that isn't a certified Browning smith!

That sounds like a really cool rifle and caliber. What kind of ballistics and groups are you getting?

Bout thirty minutes on the phone with browning (mostly on hold) and they emailed me a paid for shipping label. I did have to spend $10 to get a suitable box and packing material.

Dropped it off tonight. Hoping to have it back by Thanksgiving for PA hunting.

Customer service was excellent so far. Hoping that can fix the issue.

I hope you sent the fired brass with it??? I really don't like the scratches on them just above the belt. I really hope you get it back in time.
