I purchased a Rem 700 BDL IN 6MM on Gb and the rifle came with fifty rounds of ammo that are all reloads but there isn't any information with them as far as primer type,charge weight etc is concerned.I don't want to take any chances should I salvage all the componets or just throw them out.

I definitely wouldn't shoot any random persons reloaded ammo.  I imagine that you could pull the bullets and salvage those along with the brass.

Pull the bullets, chuck out, dump the powder, cycle the brass thru the rifle to pop primers, save the brass. All other components I'd chuck.  You may also really want to inspect that brass, you have not idea the # of firings are on them.  IMHO!

Pour the powder out onto your grass....gun powder is a good fertilizer!

I once bought a 100 rounds of used Lake City .308 brass from a gunsmith's estate sale and didn't even notice that over half had fresh primers seated in them. I loaded them up with 40.5 gr. of IMR 3031 and some 150 gr. FMJs and had no problems. But in that case, the only major variable was the unknown number of times the brass had been fired. I haven't reloaded them since but might continue to for a light plinking load.

Definitely do not try to unseat live primers. Like Steelbenz said, pop them in the rifle first.

I did what everyone said to do and came up with forty rounds of good brass [possibly virgin brass as there was no powder residue on the inside of the cases,like the rest] the other ten cases I had were rainbow colored on the outside and were hard to close the bolt on before I pulled the bullets

I would fully prep the the rainbow brass if you still have it. full length resize, a good trim, and debure should take care of the hard chamber problem.
