Problem with my 700 300 RUM

So I made a mistake some how.
A few months back I was shooting some hand loads of 90 retombo and 210 SMK with some formed cases. I had a problem where I broke the ejector plunger out and retainer pin. Lots of smoke and when I was able to force the chamber open I saw that the primer pocket had blown out.
Now as I look at it seems that the only damage done was to the ejector.
Question, should I just fix the ejector and try it out?
The last round did go down and bullseye.
Anyone have this happen?

Just to be safe, or more peace of mind, contact a local automotive machine shop, to see if they have any way to check for possible cracks, such as magna-fluxing. It shouldn't cost much, and considering how the extractor mounts on a 700, like I said, could give you a little peace of mind.

Thanks guys. That was not the exact load just around what I was playing with. I don't think it was in the 90s but up there in the high 80s. Thanks again.
