Re: .223 A I Sticking Cases

Yes, I will send photos. I did visit with my friend who reamed the chamber and we used his bore scope to examine he chamber. He did not see anything out of the ordinary and said that he had done several others with that reamer with no problems.
The only thing I noticed that looked odd is that the left bolt locking lug has a rough or gauged working surface I carefully stoned smoothed the surface cleaned all with no difference noted.
I plan to shoot again and carefully observe all. I will orient all cases the same way to see if there are any visible bulges or scuff marks in any particular location.
Because the problem seemed to be less after running a cartridge case coated with JB paste about 50 strokes into the chamber, possibly it is a bit too rough? Maybe I should look at polishing further?

Thanks for your interest
