Got her out on the firing line, but the wind and dust drove me off after only ten rounds. All ten were flawless.

Too bad your range session was cut short... :(
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.

Well, that was AFTER the 150 with the Phantom. ;) Wasn't a complete waste, but shooting steel at 25 with a handgun is fun, but that target doesn't blow over very quickly. The paper target stand said "NOPE", and wouldn't cooperate. I can't really do precision work at 80 on such a large target, aim large, miss large.
I did get one group picture, and then I had to boogie - my allergies were KILLING me, and I couldn't see well through all the junk in the air. This Wolf ammo, BTW, predates Wolf Classic by about ten years - it's been laying about a LONG time. Shot front rested, 80 yards.





Nothing to write home about - hard to shoot straight with sand in the eye, but it is what it is. Rifle works perfectly, THANK YOU to CZ-USA.

Congrats!

Did you figure out where it was dirty?

The front of the action is what they said - I make an effort to scrape that area clean, too. They also said there was left over clay from bedding there that I never saw, go figure.

Hah! Go figure indeed. Maybe it's time to re-think your cleaning chemicals?

Are they saying it was ejecting inconsistently because the shell was sticking in the chamber?

They said a combo of a weak magazine spring, (not sure how THAT would apply), and extreme buildup in the front of the action plus a filthy ejector. The way the ejector is put in, is probably the deal - it is also the bolt release for bolt removal. Works well, but it's hard to reach to clean, so I will start using Gun Scrubber for those hard to reach spots, and paying more attention to the front of the action, not something I had really paid all that much attention to before, my bad. On the other hand, it really speaks to the design that it kept on going like the Energizer Bunny despite my failure to properly take care of it.
