Brand new 308 AR platform started to FTE at around the 300 round mark.


Casing stuck to extractor and would not eject.

At the range some fellow believed the ejector was stuck.

Back at the store the smith polished the chamber, and went on to find "a small piece of brass (behind or in) the extractor."


Is this common for a 308 in the AR platform ?


A bit of a net search has turned up a few threads about the topic.


Now I am wondering is the 308 in the AR platform a bad idea or did I just pick the wrong brand/rifle.
