You might just have a weak extractor spring..not sure what it would cost but that could be it.
Yep...my guess is that would definitely be the cheaper way to go rather than take it to a gunsmith.Here's the spring only - http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/ar-15-05/upper-parts/ar15-extractor-spring-with-insert.html

brass as far as I know. No off brand ammo. I think what I am shooting out of it is Remington. I'll check this evening and let you know.Do u shoot steel, brass, or both?
Yes it probably does need those replaced, but I know my limitations and having had no one show me how to do that, it aint happening at my house. Where can I get it done?The bolt and extractor probably need to be cleaned, and you might need to replace your extractor spring and o-ring if it still has one.
Should look like this:
Bravo Company has a replacement kit you can buy:

I just did some reading, and learned to take the bolt apart myself. It is really simple to strip a bolt all the way down, and put it back together. You literally need zero tools. Look on Youtube, there may be a video on how to take it down, that would help you with the process. One thing that I would add though, take it apart on a white towel, that way you can keep track of all of your parts.Yes it probably does need those replaced, but I know my limitations and having had no one show me how to do that, it aint happening at my house.

^ThisMy thoughts are everything is ok except it needs to be cleaned very good with a chamber brush. If the shell case has a notch in it where the extractor tried to extract it and the shell is getting stuck in the chamber, that is the problem. I would clean it very good before I even thought about replacing anything. You can order a chamber brush or get one at Van's for a couple bucks. If you don't have one and are shooting a AR15, you need one. If you haven't cleaned it with one, that is going to be your problem.
