If you live in a region with hard water, dishwasher detergents don't work very well anymore. The govt outlawed phosphate as an ingredient in detergent. Weird but true. Look at this map to see if you have hard water. If so, try cloudydishes.com http://www.citriclean.net/why-citriclean/
If the powder burn rate is incorrect, you can pull case heads off in a Rem auto.... bolt tries to open too soon..using IMR 4350. the pressure curve is not right, too much gas pressure when the bullet passed the ports. Same loads shoot perfectly in a bolt gun, very accurate, actually.
If you are going to reload, I'd stay with powders in the burn range of 4064 or 4895, single-base stick powders, faster than 4350. Bullets should be the lighter range.. perhaps 150 or 180 grains. With the faster powders, the pressure curve should be correct. Honestly..... give some thought to a plain old yellow/green box of Rem 200gr Cor-Lokts... generally available off the shelf and should do the job fine. Sometimes we get carried away with our reloading efforts when there is an inexpensive box of factory ammo that will do the job, especially if it's for a non-reloader who needs advise.lso, the semi-auto and the pump type centerfires require the use of SMALL BASE reloading dies to assure proper chambering. Sometimes, regular FL dies will not size the case down far enough for reliable feeding.
Your vehicle is old and uses R-12 refrigerant. The handling, importation, exportation, sale and use of R-12 has been outlawed by the U.S. EPA in Section 609. The only exception to this is for those who are EPA 609 certified. Even at that, R-12 currently costs about $6,000 for a 30-pound can (about $200 a pound).
With that being said, unless you find a repair manual from pre-1991, you will not be able to find the R-12 spec - only directions for R134a retrofit and the spec for that.
If your system is R134A retrofitted, let me know and I can give you the specification for that.
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.
