I have a Winchester M92 chambered in.218 bee. This gun has been rebarrelled also. Notice that almost all of the cases are split upon ejection from the gun. Being a newbie I'm not sure what to make of this. Any help is appreciated.
Are the case necks splitting, or the entire case? There could be several reasons for this. If you're shooting old factory ammo, or reloads that have been reloaded too many times, the brass could be brittle. The other option is that when your rifle was chambered with new barrel it could have been done improperly, leaving you with an oversize chamber.
cases seem to be splitting right at the end they don't always do it but every so often they will. I imagine it's old brass, as I've gone through three or four boxes of new factory ammo w/out a problem but perhaps this box was an older lot.
