I fired the new build and it shot very well, quite accurately. Then, while firing the hornady American whitetail ammo the last cartridge did not eject--after mortaring the case came out--bulged at the head. It passed both the go and no-go gage tests--though the no-go passing was meaningless since the headspace is well beyond the ptg gage's 1.714. I had added spacers to the gage and it stopped closing at about 1.718

I can take a hint, time to call it a day with this one.
