its the steel lacquered cases. dont use steel. clean your chambers with denatured alcohol to remove all remnants of any lacquer that may have stuck to the chamber walls. removing that is a MUST do since it will cause even brass to stick once you get any lacquer in the chamber. cleaning is super easy. you can do it with patches or q-tips takes like 30 seconds of wiping. savage uses a 223 chamber and its pretty tight to begin with add residue from steel cases and your in trouble
