cracked cases in 17m2 from rem 504

Hi,
What do the cracked cases indicate? I'm shooting a bolt action Rem 504, and didn't think that I need to be worried, but let me know your opinions. The ammo is probably at least 10 years old, so it's not newly manufactured. It seemed to happen with CCI ammo and not the Eley that I have. Thanks for any help.

It indicates you have old ammo. Nothing is wrong with the gun.

As said, most likely old ammo, in a bolt action nothing to be concerned about.

I agree, most likely ammo, and I wouldn't be concerned in a bolt action rifle either.

Could also indicate a bad lot. I've had the same trouble with a lot of 17hmr recently.

Split cases seems to be a chronic problem with old 17HM2 ammo regardless of the manufacturer.

Not a problem in any action that isn't semi-auto.

How do you like your 504? I bought a 504 in 17HM2 and like it more than I thought that I would. Given all of the negative comments about them, I must have lucked into a good one.

504's in anything but .22lr seldom gave problems, the .22's gave very spotty accuracy.

My 504 is a beautiful rifle, but the accuracy didn't impress me the first and only time I shot it. I need to get it out again and focus a bit more on it. It's too purdy to stay in the safe.
