I have an RC K98, finally got some ammo for it but have not had a chance to take it to the range.
I took it into the backyard(could shoot back there if i wanted, but i prefer to keep happy neighbors) to check the cycling of live ammo though it, since it has not had live ammo in it in 10+ years.
On both the turk surplus ammo I have and the Mitchell's Mausers ammo, the live shells keep hanging up and do not eject.
I have taken off the boltstop and the ejector and all that, and it all seems to be working, and is not gunked up.
The edges of the shells seem to keep getting hung up on the extractor for some reason, when i pull the bolt back all the way the ejector comes up from the side and forces up one side of the shell, but the other side of the shell that is in the extractor seems to keep hanging up.
What the heck is the problem? Things might be different once the shells have been shot - with recoil and the lighter shell, all that, but I am just curious if there is something I need to look at.
