    Hot cases aren't limited to autos, it's just more noticeable from them due to the rapid ejection. There was a fire in there you know

    I've noticed that same thing with every AR I've owned (3) and on a Mini-14 too. Also noticed it on some semi auto handguns. Can't say I ever noticed it on a bolt action rifle, lever action rifle or a revolver though.
