Remington Sendero

So I bought a new Sendero 300 Ultra Mag, put a 4-16 Vortex PST on it and it turns out to be a real shooter with Berger 168 VLD'S. I am very pleased with the gun except it has a hard time pulling the brass out of the chamber at times. If you use the cleaning rod to push them out they are not stuck in there at all. I guess my question is are these guns famous for bad extractors? or am I just lucky. Also what is the best option to fix it?

Re: Remington Sendero

My Sendero SF 7mmSTW does this as well. But I think it's more from Remington using reamers that have too generous of a chamber width, or too they ream the head-spacing a couple thousandths too deep.

I plan on taking mine to my smith for inspection next time I head down there to have him finish up a rifle build for me.

Re: Remington Sendero

Thanks for the reply Mudrunner, I have been doing a little reading and it sounds like a lot of folks use a Sako extractor, I am going to do a little research on this.

Re: Remington Sendero

I believe I misread your post. You mean the extractor slips and leaves the brass in the chamber? If that's the case, then I answered incorrectly, as my rifle does NOT do that.

I thought you meant that it was tough opening up the bolt and getting the bolt to slide back with the shell still in the extractor.

My appologies.

The best option in my opinion is to have an M-16 extractor installed by a good gunsmith. I have had several done and they work great. Gary

Re: Remington Sendero

If your having a hard time getting the case to come out of chamber it could be your primary extraction. Bolt handle is probably to far back on bolt.
