Oversize ammo may be the issue. Resized shoulder not set back far enough. Adjust resizing die down and chamber the empty brass until you can close and latch the barrel completely.

I was also thinking oil on latch shelf, and as Dave stated about the oversized COAL. I had the same problem making dummy rounds for my maxis as well. Had one just a little too long and would not eject immediately but did after a delay

That can only happen if it's not latched completely or the latch spring is weak. Slam it shut the same way every time, making certain it's closed. I know, too late but wear eye protection- we're all guilty of skipping that step sometimes.

Ok I agree sending this in to authorized service center may be prudent. As competent as this crowd seems to be about all things NEF I am hopeful that a suggestion on a preferred service center or two may roll out here. Hoping some may have a suggestion based on super service provided as opposed to contacting Remington and dealing with a more random chance of receiving optimum service with this matter.

BTW I was wearing glasses when the incident occurred. Don't care to imagine the outcome if I had not. The impression of the base of the cartridge in the lens is how I was sure I took the brass in the eye as opposed to the scope.

I am a machinist by trade so there is a big part of me that wishes to dig in to this on my own. At this point & under the circumstances I'll feel much better having the right seasoned eyes looking this over.

Cant put into words how much I appreciate the input by all!

I doubt you'll get any recommendation for a specific service center because everyone that's use them wasn't happy with the service, and that was before H&R stopped production in 2015, what you'll get now is anyone's guess, you'd be better off having a local smith check it out, there's no warranty on it any more if that's a consideration. We used to get excellent service from Gardner and Illion, Gardner closed in 2008, and they closed Ilion in 2015 and sold or scrapped all the equipment.

Just a few thoughts for consideration, if it was mine, and if the stuck bullet has been removed and there's no damage to the bore from the removal, and the barrel still locks up nice and tight, I'd shoot it with normal loads, you might want to do as Dinny suggested and tie the gun to a tire and fire it remotely just as a precaution, but more than likely it wasn't damaged if the barrel still locks up tight on the frame with the forend removed, the mounted forend can make it appear tight when it isn't. We've had some serious "blow ups" for lack of better terms, but the gun was usually undamaged. One member had a friend chamber and fire a 7.62 Russian round in his 243 Handi, the bullet exited the bore and they couldn't open the action, it was sent to H&R, they replaced the barrel because it set the underlug back(which would make the barrel lose on the frame), but the frame was fine. I've personally cut and crowned a barrel for a friend that left a short brass rod in the barrel after removing stuck brass from his 223, he fired a round which left a walnut near the muzzle, gun was fine after the cut and crown.

I'll second that recommendation, Wayne's a good smith, he's done lots of work for many of us.
