.22lr Blazers shot from a TC Encore with .22lr Pro Hunter 15" barrel. Thanks.
I'm having the same issue with my 15" Encore barrel. My cases expand into the extractor and are difficult to remove. Did you ever resolve this?

I'm seeing this on my kid's hot shot carbine too with some rounds. I'd try another brand and contact tc if that doesn't help.

Re: .22lr brass deformation

No, I have resolved my .22 deformation issue. I need to get on it now though. I moved across the country to southern AZ and am just now getting my gear sorted out. I kinda forgot about this problem since I have not pulled a trigger in months.

Let me know what ya'll figure out and I will do the same. I just bought some cerrosafe to check the chamber of another barrel, but it looks like my .22 will get first dibs. More to follow.

Re: .22lr brass deformation

Too much headspace with that barrel/frame combination but itís not necessarily due to a faulty chamber. Check the gap between the breach block and barrel by snapping the barrel shut on a feeler gauge until the effort to pull the blade out increases. You might have to remove the extractor if you canít work around it. The breach block can be shimmed out if itís excessive. It could be different with a different barrel so check the gap for each if you use more than that one. See bellmtcs.com for the really good stuff on T/Cís.
