Brian... check the fired brass around  1/4"  above the base, and see if there is a narrow band with longitudinal stretch marks...it might be an indication of a head space problem, or resized/reloaded brass... bottle neck cases grow when fired, and straight wall cases shrink...the mouth of your case looks funky, and if is brass flowing from a head space problem it might show on the base of the case

It's the area just above the extraction groove on the cartridge.

Late to the party here. This is a Boyd's Coffee Laminate Thumbhole Stock I put on a Marlin X-7 I picked up in .223 a couple of years ago. The injection molded, black plastic stock it came with was too hard on the eyes. This looks so much better, and it didn't take all but 5 minutes to change it out.

Went out to clean it before work and, being a bear of little brain, remembered that I have head space gages.  Removed the extractor and ejector and, viola!  go gage don't go.

NO BUENO

Just called Stag Arms and they are sending an RMA and shipping label right now.  At least it's pretty.

It looks great but at the same time wrong for an AR.

It's less EBRish. I think we all get used to seeing the same ol' same ol' and anything different doesn't look right.

Wood is pretty .
But polymer is dead to the effects of weather and what not.
Use those pretty guns for the range, keep the polymer stuff for beating around the woods.

I've pulled apart and sealed some of my wood stocks.  It get's dry in the summer here in Oklahoma so that's when the deed happens.  So far there have not been any stocks that were finished more than a token if any on the barrel channel and receiver area....so it gets a stain and then a couple of coats of a good sealer on it.  Then everything gets oiled and siliconed down.

Not a plastic stock but I like it....

A lot of these newer laminates have so much resin and glue holding the laminated pieces together, they're almost like a solid plastic stock. They do need touching up and sealing in the bedding area as you mentioned. I just brushed a heavy coat of paste wax everywhere inside, and called it good. Out here there is so little humidity or rain, it really isn't necessary.
