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.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
