Re: Ross rifle
In my parts bin is a 1905 Ross action damaged when the bolt blew out of it. A gunsmith I know with experience with the Ross examined it and said that it had the characteristics he had seen before when Ross rifles were fired with improperly locked bolts. The back of the bolt looks like it hit something after being forcefully ejected. From the history of the Ross, it is known that the RNWMP rejected the 1905 Ross because of this very problem.
