It appears as though as the slide cycles it is hitting the spent case after the case is released by the ejector. More than 50 % of my cases have an indentation in the neck caused by the slide (or something) striking the case after ejection.

This is the design of the rifle.

The extractor does just that... it extracts ONLY. The round is then sitting in mid stride, half in and half out of the area behind the chamber. As the oprod slides forward, it BATS the cartridge out of the way.

This is the design inherited from the M1 Garand and it's offspring, the M14 rifle.

and completely normal!

I don't understand Bill's explanation. When I cycle my Ranch by hand the round is definitely ejected after extraction and before the slide would complete the rearward movement.
