    Does Primary extraction just suddenly occur or is a problem that is there from new, like in this case started off fine then went to pieces with some brass and not others.
    It will be a contributing factor. Likely a combination of poor primary extraction, possibly dirty chamber, oversize brass/undersize chamber, hot loads. It will be at least two of those problems with the major being primary extraction

    No all cases are wiped down, he has a tumbler also so his brass is kept clean.

    Inspect the brass that gets stuck for any scratches or gouges on it.
    It could be a burr in the chamber creating a mechanical lock with the brass once fired.
    It might do it with some loads more than others due to reasons including pressure of a given load, or the brass softness of a given load etc.

    Problem solved, used brand new and once fired brass and there was no problems at all. I guess my old brass has sent it’s last sending. Lol

    Ah Deereman you beat me to it, a big thanks to everyone who suggested possible problems and as my son said it was an easy fix using new brass.

    Needless to say he can't wait for hunting season to start so he can get out and put some holes in something more than paper, he is very please with the rifle by all accounts.

    Glad itís worked out, however I do think it will rear its head again and the primary extraction issue will need to be addressed.
