    I was shooting the AR I just built for the first time yesterday, and for the first ten rounds it worked flawlessly, but when I put in another magazine and pulled the trigger nothing happened. I just heard the click of the hammer. It also failed to extract anything after that first ten round magazine. There were no primer strikes on the primers. Does that sound like an issue with the bolt?

    It sounds like something stuck on the bolt face keeping the bolt from fully locking behind the extension lugs and snapping over the rim of the cartridge in the chamber.
