Hi Hope someone can help. I purchased a tikka t3-223 of a forum member around eight weeks ago it had only fired 40 rounds. Well I eventually went to zero it last night, between laser treatment on eye, work and weather I could at last get out with it.
Set up around 50 yards to get it on paper, using fedral 55g tried first round misfire, opened bolt very carefully, checked round, primer, had a very small dent in it. Tried another same. Then I tried sako 55g same two other misfires, all with small dents.
When you dry fire it is crisp and solid, put a round in it is soft and slow with not enough force to fire. Stripped bolt cleaned nothing untoward. put back together and tried again tonight same again misfire.
Any one have any idea what could be causing it.
