Have you taken it to a gunsmith to look at the problem or contacted Kelbly? Might be something simple. Good luck.I have an Atlas, it has been having a failure to eject problem lately. No parts are damaged, but it seems that when I open the bolt it drops the case before ejection. Anyone have a problem like this?
I havnt yet, I believe it’s something to do with the way the extractor works. It seems like it doesn’t snap back into the right spot after it clips on the brass. Maybe I will try cleaning it again and use a different oilHave you taken it to a gunsmith to look at the problem or contacted Kelbly? Might be something simple. Good luck.
Most people I know that are using the Atlas and other mechanical ejectors are pulling the bolt back pretty hard. A slow pull on mine drops the case on the follower (BDL), but shooting off bench, that's what I want.It’s losing the case on the pull before the ejector can eject the case
Call Kelbly. They will be glad to talk you through it. I've called them and they've always been friendly and helpful.I have an Atlas, it has been having a failure to eject problem lately.

That sounds like car dealerships when you take your car back with a major problem and they say "oh, your car is supposed to use oil" or that engine noise is normal when cold, or your transmission will jerk and shudder until it gets used to your driving style. I would bet that Kelbly's would not say that it takes a special way to open the bolt and extract a case that has to be learned by getting used to.It's most likely how fast or slow you work the bolt rearward. It takes a while to get the hang of it.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
