i loaded up some 150 spitzers with 62grains of reloader 19 , now the first round i fired was fine and extracted no problem however when i went to chamber the next round it was fine then after fireing it didnt extract ?
now all my brass is trimmed back to the standard 2.48 in length the oal bullet lenght is 3.247 which is fine however they are not extracting and also there a bit tight going into the chamber?
i noticed on the first couple that i fired that there was slight bit of rust on my brass after extraction using my cleaning rod?
i have also tried chambering just a piece of preped brass to see how far it would go without pushing it in it leaves scuffs around .5 of and inch on the brass after i insert the bolt and chamber the round properly?
i checked my 270 parker hale i was load a round into the chamber by hand with it and it goes in sweet as a nut no problem , why doesnt it do it with my tika?
i should also point out it is a new barrel which has only fired 200 rounds i was told when i bought this rifle and this is the first time ive used it since buying the rifle
