I have a friend who has a ithaca rifle in 6mm remington and is having trouble with the brass breaking off in the chamber,behind the shoulder of the brass.it is factory ammo and it doesn't happen with every shot but the brass has a ring on it,sometimes the bolt will close easily and then other times you have to force it.anybody have any ideas

How is the head space?   Is this factory ammo or reloads?
