I recently did a little maintenance and a front sight install on a Savage 24 over and under for a friend of mine. The firearm has certainly been neglected in the past but after a little cleaning it functioned fine for me. After he took it home he fired one 20 gauge and 2 rounds through the top 222 barrel. The second round failed to eject and the extractor just pulled through the base. The extremely small model 24 extractors don't take much of a bite and Paul was actually able to remove the brass with a fingernail.........however only the base and about 1/2" of brass came out, the rest remaining in the chamber. This is brand new Federal ammo I purchased myself to test the rifle. I'm leaning towards flawed ammo but when I get the rifle back I will do a chamber cast to be sure. I'm wondering if anyone else has ever had a similar experience with new ammunition?
