I have a Winchester Model 70 300wm that has a jammed bolt with a hand load in the chamber.
Buddy and I were at the range sighting in for a bear hunt. Well he threw in a hand load in my Win300 cycled the bolt forward and now it's jammed. Then cranking back in the bolt handle it decided to snap off. Now we have a broken bolt that's jammed in the receiver. We did everything we could think of, oiled the bolt, down the barrel, and lightly tapped the bolt with a punch and hammer. No joy...
Anyone out there have any ideas?
I called Winchester and they pretty much stated the obvious, take it to a gunsmith ( don't have one in Sitka), get the round out and send it back to Winchester due to the broken bolt.
here's a pic.
