    Recently I purchase a used ProHunter in .243win. When I checked the headspace, it failed with the nogo gauge but did not fail with the field gauge. Is this normal or did I buy a lemon? Maybe someone from Steyr Technical can chime in with comments. When I fire factory ammo in it, the brass appears to be stretched out at the rear of the cartridge more than normal as if it would separate if it were reloaded and shot again. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
