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.
