Sako 75 w/ Near base has extraction issue
I hope that someone here can help me out. First, here is what I have:
Sako 75 Stainless
McMillan stock (action is bedded)
Last year, I had a Near Mfg. scope base installed. It fits and looks perfect. The rifle is a very nice shooter. Using factory stuff, it will shoot .25 at 100 yards.
Here is the problem: Since having the base installed, the empty cases will not extract all of the way. It looks like a stove pipe from a semi-auto handgun. I noticed that the case, no matter how fast I work the action, stikes the bottom of the base on the way out.
When I had Sako bases, prior to having the base installed, the cases extracted fine.
If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this, please let me know. I really want to keep the base.
