No oil, I did not clean or oil after sighting it in before the Colorado trip.

I am in contact with Remington and am providing them with the information that they are requesting.

I also use tape to protect the muzzle on my rifles, particularly my traditional BP MLers.

But what I do is only apply tape to the end/muzzle, and trim with my knife so only a circle of tape covers the end. Never had a problem this way

Everything has been sent to Remington so the ball is in their court.  I ain't expecting much.   ::)

Speaking of Remington. 

I have read in several news releases that Remington is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy:  In brief: Remington files for bankruptcy amid declining gun sales | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I have always been very partial to their weapons.  Maybe because that's what I grew up shooting.

Thank You @Crow99 for your Reply #15.  I contacted Remington who sent me a return shipping label and requested the spent cartridges as well as any unfired cartridges e/w the box, etc.

Remington contacted me yesterday stating that they would cover the cost of the bolt plus replace the ammo.  The said that the failure was due to corrosion inside of the primer.  They gave me a contact with Browning.  Browning then called me today and sent me a return shipping label.

I will box the entire rifle and send it to Browning.

Edit:  Browning sent me a return label and the rifle has been boxed and delivered to UPS.

Excellent!  Looks like you'e on the way to a full resolution of the problem. I' m glad that Remington is making things right for you.  These days you hear so many times where this or that company leaves people high and dry. It's good to hear that one is doing the right thing.

A good many years ago I was having trouble with my Remington 870. Whenever I shot a slug the chamber would open. Shot thousands of rounds of trap loads without it happening ,before and after the slug problem. 
I called Remington and sent the gun to them. A few weeks later a representative called me to say he couldn't find a problem with it and that I was inadvertently pulling the chamber open when I fired the gun. I explained that I had thought of that possibility and had bench fired it with no hand on the forend, it still opened.
Another week or so went by and I received another phone call from Remington "we are unable to find any problem with your shotgun,  we are sending it back to you". A few days later the gun came via UPS, in the box was a letter stating that they had found nothing wrong. The 870 had a brand new receiver and bolt. Hmmmm, they found nothing wrong but replaced the receiver and bolt? Remington did not put in writing or verbally tell me that they were replacing parts. The chamber did not pop open when firing slugs after that.
I have always wondered if they really couldn't find something wrong and replaced parts to cya or if they knew there was a problem and replaced parts to fix it.
Oh well, they didn't charge me, the gun works properly.

   While I was in USMC we had a problem on the M2 (I think) .50 cal machinegun on the LVTs jamming after a few rounds. I think it was Browning who made them. They took the gun and drilled a hole in the cover and mounted a camera to watch the feed. Fired thousands of rounds with no further problem. Evidently the extra space at the cover for the lens fixed the problem. Accidental discovery. Never can tell what till you try it out.

My rifle is back from Browning.  I have no idea how they repaired the bolt face but the crater is gone and it is now smooth, all at no cost to me.  Remington also sent me two boxes of cartridges.

Thanks to all who offered suggestions and motivated me to examine the bolt face and take the necessary steps toward getting it repaired.

They are in Chapter 11 "restructuring" bankruptcy same as many/most of the other gun manufacturers have gone through.  I don't know how you reduce your debt by $650 million but that is their plan??

They handled my incident very professionally and with no reluctance.  Browning did the fix, Remington paid for it, and I am 100% satisfied.
