My T3x Superlite won’t chamber Nosler 6.5 Creedmoor 142gr AccuBond LR?
Hi All, not sure this is the best discussion group so apologies if I should have chosen Reloading or another… anyway, I’ve just recently got my T3x Superlite in 6.5 Creedmoor up and running and am trying to find the best load for the rifle in preparation for hunting season. Today was my second day at the range with it. First day was spent zeroing the scope and I put 18 Hornady American Whitetail 129gr Interlock down range. Good groups of 3, best at about .75″ using a Lead Sled. Was back today and put another bunch of Hornady American Whitetail and Hornady Precision Hunter 143gr ELD-X down range this time using just a bi-pod; was able to get some 1 MOA groups (its me not the rifle). BUT when I tried to load the Nosler 6.5 Creedmoor 142Gr AccuBond LongRange I was unable to chamber the round. Cartridges went in the Mag just fine, but I could not close the bolt on them. Tried multiple cartridges. Finally, went back to Hornady to make sure something hadn’t happened, and the Hornady fired fine.
Any thoughts on what could be going wrong? Why won’t the Noslers load? Has anyone else experienced this?
