DT told me this is normal. I think this is BS.

Does your FE MDRx also do this to brass?

Hard to resize those.  Looks like what Galils do to brass.

That's where the pusher hits the brass to kick it into the ejection chute.  It has to hit with enough force to quickly move the brass past the chute's retaining clip and into the ejection channel.  Have you tried backing down the gas a notch?  I didn't notice that on mine.

That's exactly what happens from turning up the gas too high.

If turning it down, and the rifle still cycles, doesn't do the trick, it might be something you have to accept as a design "feature", much like fluting on an HK rifle and how it abuses the brass.  I hope it works for you.

Agree, turn it down a notch on gas, and see if it still cycles reliably. Also, for the record, Iíve reloaded brass like that many times for my MDRX and never had an issue.

THIS!!! The brass has to be pushed off the bolt and into the ejection chute.  Mine puts marks on it also, what ammo are you shooting?
