Thread: What's happening with these cases?

    What's happening with these cases?

    First time reloader, not used the rifle before. Half way through working up I start to get this: first Photo. Going back to lower power loads I used for initial zero, similar problem; 2nd photo. What's causing this?

    Hard to get phone to focus on the cases but you get the idea.

    Thanks

    Have you had a look at the chamber? I'm not an experienced reloader or owt but that'd be my first port of call

    That looks like you had something in your chamber - a strand of cotton off a patch will do that - or a pine needle etc.
    Scrub out your chamber & try again. - Probably nowt to do with the fact that it's a reload.

    As Ian said try cleaning your chamber then fire another round and see if its still happening.
