Just wanted y'all to know, I got the .17 HMR cal Rimfire single shot Rossie back from factory repair. they replaced the barrel& sent me 8 empties to prove they were no longer splitting!
The rifle will be going back to their factory again! Yes they checked for split cases, but they failed to notice the bulge right under the rim of the cartridge. The strike mark on the rim of the cartridge appears to be causing the the bulge right under the rim! The strike mark on the cartridge and the buldge line up perfectly. It is a very obvious bulge! I shot the gun five times hoping they sent me the wrong empties., my empty casings matched theirs. The saga continues. It must be my Karma.
