One day I fired a couple of rounds to make sure my rifle was sighted in properly. Three rounds to be exact. On the third round, safety off, I squeezed the trigger and it would not budge. I double checked the safety, it was off for sure. I pulled the bolt and released the round from the bolt and chamber. When I pushed the bolt back into firing position the pin went off as soon as I closed the bolt. Luckily I did not have a round under the hammer.
This was a one time instance. I have never been able to duplicate the problem for the life of me. I have been told the round I had in the chamber at the time was probably warped. I find it odd the pin went off as soon as I closed the bolt without a round.
Are there any tell tale signs of what could have gone wrong? Or should I take this rifle to a gunsmith. I would hate to pay a gunsmith top dollar if the problem cannot be duplicated, and in fact it was a warped cartridge.
