At the local range this weekend a guy was out with his new 6.5g trying to get it sighted in. Being curious, and thinking of a 6.x build I picked up some brass he left behind, and the RM gave me some he found on the 25yrd line as well.

I'm curious though, as it was all pinched/flattened/etc at the neck, would that be an extraction problem, ejector spring tension, or any myriad of problems?

Must not have been Lapua!

He probably used Wolf brass!

Anyway, I've experienced that on some cases (see photo), and I think it happens when the brass hits the deflector. One can put a patch of black self-adhesive velcro (the fuzzy or "loop" side) on the deflector, and it should help solve the problem.

In my 700, when it leaves the chamber, it gets a good enough run to whack the inside of the receiver pretty good.
This usually "oval" the case mouth, but running it through the sizing bushing (I don't have an expander in my die) takes it back round.
If that doesn't work, a light tap with a nail punch brings it back.


I don't know if I could bring myself to plink with Lapua brass in an AR.

bottom row, 2nd one. All brass is like that, but worse. I haven't sorted it from the other brass that day (dumped it all in one bag), when I do I'll get the picture up (tomorrow hopefully).

I'll get a headstamp pic as well.

I saw the same with Lapua brass when I had my Grendel.

Run it through the sizing die, that will fix it
And yeah, it was probably hitting the deflector.

The most puzzling part of this is why the hell did he not scavenge it all? That stuff ain't cheap!


(You ought to see me searching for every last damn piece of my 300 whisper brass)

Like Forrest said, run it through your resizer die and it will straighten that out. Common issue for me fixed by the resizer die.
