.22lr brass deformation

Can you diagnose my brass deformation problem? As you can see in the photo, all three cases are deformed. The bulge is about 1/2 around the brass. Each one is approximately the same.

.22lr Blazers shot from a TC Encore with .22lr Pro Hunter 15" barrel. Thanks.

Looks like a terribly out of spec chamber.

If it's closing properly, then that's your critter right there. Crappy chamber.

Is it a new barrel or is it used? It looks as though someone that didnt know what they were doing had a dremel tool in the chamber... I wouldnt shoot it anymore without getting it fixed.

Re: .22lr brass deformation

It was a brand new barrel. Now it has approx 30 rounds through it. The action closes properly and nothing looks out of the ordinary. I tried different ammo and that produced the same deformation.

What should I be looking for in the chamber to say "that's the problem"? What's the fix? Thanks.

Re: .22lr brass deformation

Does TC know about it yet?? If they don't, get either them or your local shop in the picture. Rimfire rounds are rather fragile, so even though they aren't reloaded, this could be a problem.
Look for a wide spot on one side at the back of the chamber- it looks like the reamer might have had an issue or something.

No, ya'll are the first to know.

It shoots close-range. It is my yard gun. At 20y it makes one big hole. I have not shot it beyond that.
