Check the magazine spring; the weapon was probably stored with ammo in the mag, and the spring has lost its elasticity. Try a different mag and see whether it resolves the problem.

Primer failure with federal ammunition
Blown primers and hard ejection are clear indications of excessive pressure. If these are handloads you need to back off on the charge and possibly make other changes in your load. Check a good loading manual for reference.
If they are factory loads you perhaps have a headspace problem or the oal with that particular bullet is too long for your particular rifle, jamming the bullet into the rifling, and not allowing it any "jump space" or lead.
1. dont fire anymore of that lot of ammo, and contact federal.
2. check with a qualified gunsmith, have headspace, and bore diameter checked.
3. if your knowledgable in smoking the tip of a bullet, check for lead, or have this done by a qualified gunsmith.

Photos display correctly on laptop but rotate when downloaded to frame
Some Laptops have the ability to automatically rotate pictures based on certain criteria.

(I usually use something like HPIM2345.JPG and the new name would be HPIM2345a.JPG. I do this so I still have the original in case something goes wrong. I go through the whole batch from my camera or phone, rotate as necessary, and once I am sure they are OK then I delete the original.
