Default New BAR II FTE PROBLEMS

Is this the right place for my question? How to fix the FTE problem.

It is a NIB Whitetails Unlimited 7mm Rem. BAR rifle dated 1993, unfired when I bought it a month ago . The plunger style ejector appears to work as intended. The extractor seems to be appropriately "spring loaded" as near as I can tell. About half of the rounds fired don't get all the way out of the ejection port. I removed the gas piston and it looked pretty clean. Came out easily. I've fired the rifle about 40-50 times.

Do any of you know how I can fix this? I don't want to send it anywhere.

Does anyone remember the scene from "Quigley Down Under" showing the aborigines lined up on the skyline as far as you could see? That needs to be US!

Had to turn my Weaver rings around. The clamp knob was interfering with ejection.

Please close.

Are you using factory ammo. Loads that are too hot cause all types of problems in Rem and Browning semi rifles.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, factory ammo. I fixed it. I found that the clamp knob on the Weaver ring was interfering with the ejection. I reversed the ring so that the clamp knob was on the left side of the rifle, and like magic, the rifle works perfectly now.

I bought a 1980 model bar chambered in 3006, I had jam/ejection issues while hunting bear with the 220 grain corelokt round nose loads, having never owned a semi auto in my life i got a fine education from a highly qualified gunsmith. round nose cause problems feeding and shell ejection. Ive used spire points since and not a problem also a tip i picked up from the smith was use nickle plated casings as they dont gum up as much as brass ones that are exposed to the conditions, not a pob in bolt action but semi autos another story. also hand loads under powered can cause issues and ive been told to stay away from "hot" loads as well. keep that piston clean and free shoud be good to go.
