Check the dimensions of the case. If it’s Hornady, I have experienced the same issue with certain lots of their 6.5x284 and 6.5CM Brass. The case head dimensions were oversized and would not allow the bolt to close. Re-sizing would not help.

So pretty much if there is a round in the mag still your ejecting cartridge gets stuck?

Does it matter what authority you eject the case/run the bolt?

remember the prc case is .022 smaller than the wsm case chances are the prc case is riding higher up in the feed lips causing the interference
try wraping some masking tape around a case then a normal case in mag and see if it helps with the feed and eject cycles

The Ojive of the bullet you are using could start further from the neck and cause it to contact the rifling to soon.
We’ve already discussed this. Going off their specs it should just be touching with the 147s which are the longest to the ogive of the bullets he’s shooting.
