Re: Ejection problem
Doug, I know exactly what the problem is, your spring if fine, as it looks in the video there is plenty of push to the port.
The rebated rim on the 284 case due to the fatter body in front of the rim is what makes it stick.
As the case angles out of the port, the fatter area in front of the rim binds the case from the contact of this area with the bolt nose. To correct it the bolt needs to be put in the lathe, and a few thousandths needs to be cut off the bolt nose, as well as a new chamfer leading into the bolt nose recess.
This needs to be done with care as what you are removing is the part of the bolt that holds in the remmy extractor. The last one I removed about .005"
It is worse with norma brass than it is with lapua brass. but both will do it.
