I had a very similar issue with a .243 some time back. Fired the chosen load withought pressure signs and then suddenly started blowing primers. It turned out it was a build up of copper fowling in the barrel that was causing the increased pressure. Like you I posted the issue on a forum as I had no idea what was causing it. I was told to pass a patch down the barrel and feel for a tight spot. Sure enough there it was about 6 inches from the chamber. I thourghly cleaned the barrel and I mean thourghly - the problem immeadiatley dissapeared. Give it a try and if it works clean more frequently.

thats a good idea. this is my first auto loader and it is crazy how those rounds between cleanings seem to rack up a bit faster when you only have to switch a magazine outevery 20 rounds. I left some rounds in the car last summer a little long, and poped a primer out of one of them. But that was very different than what this thing is doing. It fires totally normal. I dont notice any thing wrong until that loose primer jams the next round from loading. I miced it all over and every thing seems in line except the case head. The rim where the extractor grabs it, is pulled back so hard it cups up the rim. At the same time the ejector button leaves a hellovo ring mark in the head. The whole thing looks all messtd up around the rim. There weas even a few that looked like that that I was able to pick up and shake the primers out of. I hate it to because this is a huge lot of once fired GMM brass my Sniper Brother in lawgets for me. I must emplore those of you with more experiance with these autos to please give me a hand

Like I said. I am a "BOLT-GUN" person I bought this thing because my brother in law was in love with it. When i had a little winfall he convinced me "THESE GUNS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN A VERY SHORT TIME" bla bla. But any way ive got it now. It sure made him happy.

It was starting to grow on me till this. I told my wife this new gun is worse than a new woman....Wont tell ya whats wrong, wont say what your doing to make her act the way she does,wont give you what you both know you wont.And never fails to remind you how close you might be to gettin

On that note. I have 3 lady traits this rifle has tought me She looks awsome in black ,I have no doubt that this and any other problem i might have with her, she will let it be known, it was all my fault And YES MONEY CAN BUY HAPPINESS
