    Well I had my first reloading screw up today....just an FYI...lilgun and h4350 makes for q hot load to say the least.....any how I did some load work to play with seating depth on my accuracy load and the first shot locked the bolt popped the primer and also popped out the ejector/case holder on the bolt (savage model 12lrp in .260) I pulled the bolt out put the spring back in folowed by the bb and the ejector piece. I shot three rounds into .4 with another group of loads I had previously made up but the empty doesn't eject from the chamber it just falls into the action once it gets to the position it should eject. Any ideas?

    Sounds like you may have broke the ejector pin or the spring underneath.
