Thread: baa cf2 brass not ejecting

    baa cf2 brass not ejecting

    Got a problem with my bsa cf2 .243, when I fire the gun the discharge case is getting stuck in the chamber and it needs to be push out with a cleaning rod but if I don't fire the bullet come out without a problem. Anyone know what the problem could be before I take it to the gunshop,

    Thanks

    Do you reload your own rounds?
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    1.What ammunition are you using?
    2. Is the chamber clean?
    3. What is the condition of the extractor claw/spring?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    i reloading my own rounds, ppu cases, 37gn n160 and sierra 100gr spt heads, the chamber is clean, condition of the the claw and springs looks good but just order and new spring and plunger but having trouble find and new/used claw

    Does this problem occur with all loads including factory ammo or simply with this particular reload?
    Does it for instance occur if the same load which appears to be mid range in the Vihtavuori data is used with other cases such as Winchester cases which may have thinner walls and a greater case capacity, hence less pressure?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    John Knibbs in Birmingham may have some parts for your rifle.

    Are you getting pressure signs on the cases after firing?
    Is the bolt lift after firing difficult?
    Are you loading long so that the bullet is rammed into the rifling on chambering?
    Are your cases trimmed to correct length before loading?
    Did you work up the load or just start with this powder weight?

    37gr is a low load
    is the brass FL sized? PPU is hard IMO, tight chambering hard brass and a weak extractor spring and worn extractor claw will leave them in the chamber

    the plunger and spring are only in use once extracted, no point replacing them if they are fine
    can you get an empty case to stay on the extractor with the bolt removed?

    I would say extractor spring, my BSA 222 did the exact same thing

    The brass is full sized and trim to length. I'm not getting any pressure signs.

    ive put a new extractor spring in and got a few different case and go to try a few different powder loads to see what works the best. So I'll let you know what happens.

    Looks like the first thing needed is to thoroughly clean the bolt. Get the brass off the breech face and clean the extractor and if possible take the extractor out and clean under it.
