Extractor Issue – Maybe
New to Tikkas, just picked up my T3X Lite SS in 7mm RM. Noticed when cycling rounds (dry runs), some would not engage the extractor and come out, this seems to happen only with Hornady rounds. Rounds sit sitting in chamber, requires bumping the stock to release. Winchester and Remington eject with no issues.
Haven't fired the rifle yet, just picked it up yesterday. Just trying to cycling some rounds through to test things. Ammo is all factory box.
I wonder if the Hornady that doesn't engage the extractor will push back once fired, thus solidly engaging the extractor and have no issues.
I'm not new to guns in general, and never experienced this issue before. Should I be worried? My concern is if the lip of the brass isn't engaged and the round goes off, will it extract or do I need to bring a rod to the range?
