    Stop trying to force it. That accomplishes nothing and may damage something. Confirm that the barrel is indeed .308 Win and not something else. If that checks out, the chamber need to be verified as correctly reamed. Same with the ammo.

    hey people. the barrel reads 308 win and the box reads 308 win, i have a correction on the brand of ammo i listed it as HRP and its actually HPR a little research shows im not the only one having problems getting this ammo to load. i prefer to shoot remington factory ammo in my rifles but at the time and the store they had their remington ammo at over 50 dollars. im gonna try and hunt down some factory ammo and give this another try......and i clean my guns before i shoot the first bullet and after every outing.......i will keep yall posted

    I work in a business that solves problems for people by doing a lot of trouble shooting. No pun intended haha. But I have to ask the obvious first. Its amazing how many people overlook the obvious problem for something else. I know you said the box says .308 win, but does the casing say it as well. Could the wrong ammo be in the wrong box. My .454 casul super redhawk with hot loads has a hard time extracting the cases from the cylinder after being fired but they do come out easy enough.

    Honestly, imo, you've put more effort into this than you should have. I would take it back to the store you bought it from or contact the manufacturer.

    Did you buy this rifle new? Different barrels of other calibers (or even the same caliber) can be put on that receiver, but do require a trip back to the factory for proper headspacing.
    If used, someone before you may have changed out the barrel not knowing this.
    If new, it should have made a trip to the mother ship long ago.
    Either way, the very least I would do is contact the factory and ask them what configuration the rifle was when shipped. (have the model and serial number) It may answer a lot of questions
    Let us know.

    Take that crap back where you bought it. I'm sure that you are not the first to have issues with it. AMERC is also some crappy stuff. Their 38Special sticks in the chambers of my Ruger Speed Six.

    I try to do a lot of research before i buy a gun because i do not sell my gun, so i dont wanna be stuck with a piece of junk. I was very excited bout this gun when i bought it and it was cheap, and as i stated before i have a friend who has had one for years and loves it, funny i was thinking bout getting rid of this gun over a silly ammo issue. I appreciate all the input and advice.
