Sergeant of the Hide
- Aug 12, 2020
As others have stated...tight match chamber, unfired rounds might not come back out. Rangemaster, "Fire in the hole!", boom.I wouldn't expect a match chamber to extract an unfired round. More surpised if it works- and makes me wonder if the chamber is short enough. Pretty much SOP at a match to get an OK to fire a chambered if time expires. That and a pocket knife to flick out brass.
Its kind of a known thing, as boxerglocker said. Custom barrel might be really tight by design, and might overcome stock extractor. In this case with a stock rifle, if its really an accurate rifle, that might be part of the deal. Its like having a sports car with tight suspension...it doesn't exactly handle potholes well...If you don't want major jarring by potholes, move to an easier driving minivan.
Ironically, I'm recently having issues extracting spent brass from my rifle...separate post, off topic.
