There are two answers to this. First, pull back the bokt more aggressivley and the case will make it out.I asked this question before, but then it kind of got lost when two other members got into a p*ssing match with each other. So I'll try asking again. I have a LH DTA Covert that I bought slightly used in 300 WM. Just starting to get used to the rifle. The one problem I have is that the rifle is not ejecting a fired round when I open the bolt. To be clear, the bolt has no problem extracting the round from the chamber, but I have to rotate the rifle 90 degrees to get the spent round fall out. This happens regardless of whether I open the bolt slowly or quickly. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a quick fix?
Secondly, Mark at Short Action Customs makes a bolt head with a mucho better extractor which I am using on my .223 conversion. Case comes out no matter how slowly you cycle the bolt. I emailed him just yesterday to see if he would make me a bolt head with his improved extractor. I'm hoping he can do it for me.
