Re: remington 700 ejector problem

I usually pull the ejector when fireforming cases so I know the case base is totally against the boltface. Factory springloaded ejectors can also knock the neck out-of-round especially on thin walled turned cases. So you can grind the ejector face to shorten the throw, lessen the spring or remove it entirely.

Re: remington 700 ejector problem

I cut the spring (one coil at a time!) until the plunger is just strong enough to move the case over so I can pluck it out.

I suppose I'll want a stronger spring if I ever get charged by a hoard!
