Case munching on new Colt Officer

Any thoughts on why this is happening?
230gr. S&B hardball .45ACP out of Colt Officer LTW. XS box stock. Brand new gun shot 50 rounds flawlessly but all spent cases look like this.

My best guess would be either a tight extractor or the ejector tip "angle", pivoting the case into the edge of the ejection port at more of a 90 degree angle, rather than up and out. The good news is the gun still runs 100%! If you have a spare, try a different extractor first, before messing with the ejector - they are seldom a problem. Your Officer's should have an "extended" ejector, I believe.

Warmly, Col. Colt
