    I just bought a new Taurus Tracker 17hmr. Shot it 7 times and had a hard time ejecting the cases. I brushed the cylinders and tried it again...same thing after 2 rounds of 7 shots. This is what the cases look like when I get them out. The ones on the right are from my Savage 17hmr. Anyone know whats going on?

    Yikes. Really badly cut chambers, I'd say. I wouldn't shoot that anymore if I were you. Call up Taurus's customer service.

    Yea I did. I'm sending it back. With all the powder residue on it from test firing it at the factory, how in the world could it pass inspection? I ask the rep to just send me a new cylinder but he wouldnt. There is a black permanent marker line on the side of it and I'm guessing it was marked to not be shipped. Pretty poor qc.
