I was at the range and a fellow was complaining about the poor accuracy he was getting on a large target at 100 yards. I told him to check the scope rings and bases to be sure they were tight and they were. Then the action screws were examined and they were fine. I looked at the box of ammo and asked if he had ever had these problems with his .270 Win. He said he did not own a .270 and was shooting a .30-06. A friend gave him the factory ammo and he never checked it. The rifle was fine and I hope the shooter learned a lesson. All the best...

He is likely to have some more .30-06 brass from that range session.

wtf That is just downright scary Gil.

You would have thought that he would have heard the bullet rattling down the barrel when fired. He is a very lucky man that something bad didn't happen to his rifle.

Cheers, Vince

Yes it is !!!

It's possible to shoot the 25-06 and the .270 in a 30-06 because they share the same 2.0526 head space dimension. The .280 is a little longer at 2.1042

Mike, I've seen it done 3 times !!!

One was a Glock that would jam after being fired .... took that guy 3 shots to realize he had the wrong ammo !!!

The other 2 were with XD's
One guy shot a half mag before he noticed the recoil wasn't right, the other had a mag of mixed 9's and 40's, he'd kept on going if I hadn't stopped him.

Both the XD's cycled the 9's without a problem........ lesson learned for worst case scenario !!!

It is possible for even the .222 to fire in a .223 given the right conditions. A controlled-feed action can easily capture the rim and hold it in place enough to allow the firing pin to engage the primer. A friend had this happen with a Winchester M70 that was stamped ".222 Remington" but had a chamber for .223 Remington. Lots of gas leak and an odd looking case, but no real damage on that particular rifle. We never did figure out the miss-stamping since Winchester records show that rifle leaving the factory as a .222. I'm guessing someone had a chambering reamer and opened it up without re-stamping. It did shoot .223s great once we figured it out.

There are a lot of other cartridges where the same thing could happen under the right conditions. It just proves that one should always pay attention to what they are doing!
