I just picked up an unfired mod 70xtr .30-06 made I think in 1981. The spring-loaded ejector rod that sticks out of the bolt face gouges the base of the cartridge pretty good. I polished it up to a mirror finish, which helped a bit, but it still does more damage than I can live with, especially since I want to reload my cases. Anyone ever see this before and have any advice?? I've sure never seen this before. That rod needs a strong spring to do it's job but this one is just too stiff I think. Anyone ever shorten one to weaken it a tad?
