Not as of yet.
Is it possible that these rifles were not designed to eject live rounds? it's almost as if the length allowed for ejection is only intended for spent casings to exit. It chambers the live rounds just fine, but will not eject a live .22 long or long rifle without mangling the bullet.
The live .22 shorts eject just fine. But with those the problem of over feeding comes up when levering a round into the chamber. A problem that doesn't happen with longs or LRs.
I must admit I'm stumped
What do I need to check for in the chamber area that would cause/add to this problem. I't quite easy to see/ inspect with the rifle in half, I just don't know quite what I should be looking for.
