When opening the bolt, the spent casing falls loose on top of the follower and doesn't "eject". What is the likely cause of, and more importantly, remedy for this? This is a RemAge using a new 700 LA bolt and action.

Thank you in advance,
Erik

Sounds like the ejector plunger is stuck or not working at all. sometimes they get a little brass in the hole and it jams the plunger.

If the ejector seems to be operating okay, snap a case under the extractor and see if you can pull it straight off the bolt. ( bolt removed )
