In the last 2 days, I've had my G, B, and E string break on me, all around the bridge. These strings aren't more than 2 weeks old. Ive tried filing down the saddles with a wound string, but no luck. What's going on?

what current gauge strings are you using and how hard do you strum?

sometimes filing doesnt work. unless it's perfectly smooth, it still might be cutting the strings there.

some brands like Ernies, tend to break easier than others, imo.

and lubing the contact points can help.

but if you're sure it's not a bad batch of strings, you might want to invest in a set of graphtech saddles.

I'm using DR Coated 10's, but maybe I'll try a different brand. But I've been using them for a while, and never had this happen to me.

What kind of bridge are you using and does it have a Bigsby or other tailpiece vibrato deal? Also, what kind of guitar are you having problems with?

It's a PRS trem on a PRS 513.
