Thread: deformed case neck

  1. #1

    deformed case neck

    i have a new gun (second hand) .223 and after firing factory new ppu cartidges the spent cases all seem to have a flat mark on the case necks on one side after firing:

    i am interested to know if this is normal and if it would be a problem if i wanted to reload the cartidges?

    or should i be looking for a problem with the throat in the gun i have brought or perhaps it just needs a good clean?

    any suggestions would be appreciated.

    It might be worth inserting an empty case into the chamber by hand and then closing the bolt and extracting/ejecting the case as normal just to see if the problem is happening during extraction/ejection rather than during firing. That would help eliminate another factor.

    strong ejector bud when you open it stop it dragging with your finger should stop it then either mod the ejector or at least you will know what it is.won't overly harm the brass.

    My X-Bolt did it as well, mine reformed ok, never worried about it to be honest.
