ID:	18996ive a tikka t3 in .223 which shoots really well so no complaints there but i have noticed that all the fired cases are becoming squared off around the case mouth instead of being round all the way around. just wondering if this is anything to be keeping an eye on etc. like i say it shoots fine so im not too worried but its niggling me a bit as to what and way its doing it. cheers guys

    shoot one but dont eject it
    pull the bolt back very slowly and remove by hand, see if it is still dented at the lip

    my money is it is happening on ejection

    If the square is on the right hand side as you eject them id put money on them catching the ejecter

    try chambering an empty sized case(no bullet ) and dry firing it then carefully see if you can feel resistance asyou eject it
