    I had trouble with a 6.5mm Swedish AG42B chamber and did the case polishing trick as mentioned previously, as the case rims were being pulled off/distorted/ripped by the extractor. Cleaning and lightly oiling the cases also seemed to work, though I was advised not to do this as it could overload the bolt.

    Also a Chinese SKS 7.62x39mm had the same treatment -as it had a build-up of carbon in one area (bottom)of the neck of the chamber and tended to malfunction once in a while.

    Both were successful. Interesting site, I will visit again.
