Re: Extractor problems
The Sako extractor is a good extractor, but does have some drawbacks. The only time that I would recommend using a Sako style extractor is when changing bolt face sizes, ie. going from a .223 to a .308 or a magnum size. The Sako extractor has been known to be blown out of the action in the event of a case failure. If you choose to have a Sako style extractor installed, don't load to maximum or excess pressures as you don't want the extractor to become a flying object. If at all possible, keep the original Remington extractor and use an action with the appropriate size bolt face or use another make of action with the correct bolt face. I will only install Sako extractors in Remington actions and will not be responsible for maximum or excess loadings or any other cause of a case failure in the rifle. If you have a Sako extractor installed, remember YOU MUST NOT LOAD to maximum or excessive loads for that rifle.
