    I'm having to send the bolt from my .308 T/C Icon back for repair or replacement. The "T-Slot" that guides the extractor has partially broken away, from the outer edge of the lug. What happens is that when extracting a shell, the extractor come out (stands up on end, sort of) and the bolt jams stuck, partially open. I can push the extractor back in, but it will jam again.

    Has anybody else had something similar happen? I was shooting some Federal Match ammo (168 gr) after sighting in with Nosler Trophy (165 gr) when it acted up. I can't say for sure when the bolt damage occurred.

    The timing stinks, rifle season for deer begins in three weeks here in Maryland.

    Otherwise, this is a fine rifle.
