Have I got this right that, after only 2,600 rounds, your Mk4 had to be re-chambered ? if so, doesn't that seems a tad low in round count ? More like 17 Rem ?

Just curious as I have 17 Fireball...

Remington 700/7 trigger recall

"Excess Bonding agent" ? Is this Remington speak for the mess of glue surrounding the trigger adjustment screws ?

If so, how could it promote an unsafe discharge ?

I can see carbon build-up in the leade by eyeballing the bore from the breech towards bright light. Worth a try.

Calibre change from 17 Fireball

I have a Remington Model 7 CDL, short action, in 17 Fireball.

When it comes time to rebarrel what options would I have in changing the calibre, using the same magazine, action and bolt ?

With a factory 17FB, the neck diameter of live ammo is 0.198" and 0.204" on the spent cases. So, assuming the brass has contracted 2 thou after firing, I calculate that my chamber has an internal...

Get a No-Go gauge to check chamber dimensions.

Maybe you are stretching the case length by using a non lubed neck and/or expander ball. This would be confirmed if you cannot close the bolt on a...

I think that a No-Go gauge would confirm that the chamber dimensions are out of spec. Mine pushes the shoulder out by 6 thou with a new case and only just passes with the gauge.

JB or IOSSO (OR NOT)?

IME bronze brushing and/or chemical cleaners work well for most of the time, but eventually JB, Iosso or KG2 will be needed to remove hard fouling/carbon buildup.

Brass, Midway shortage?

Seems that quite a lot of brass which is normally available with Midway is listed as out of stock, with no option to back order.

Any reason?

IMO, the 17 FB is a classic and will stay, despite the lack of support from the main manufacturers. It's a brilliant cartridge, go buy one and check it for yourself.:)
