* On a side note. Brass that was hard to extract, after I resize, chambers in the rifle as easy as new brass. But pull the trigger and it is now harder to extract then previous fire......
Again I appreciate all the help on this.
What's the measurement on the extractor groove itself (if you can get your caliper in there and check new/ofb and compare? Other than a new full body die... don't laugh... but... what about a thin layer of EWG (Extreme Weapons Grease from SLIP2000)? I've never personally had this problem yet, but if I did everything else and you felt that the pressures were safe and it was just being a butt head on extracting, I might try a thin layer of EWG? I use that stuff on all my assault rifles and supposedly it can take a lot of pressures and temperature. I would think you would want a really thin layer of it (when I use it on my bolts and barrels, it only takes a very small amount and after it sits for about 10 minutes, you wipe it off and only a micro thin film is left in the metal). Slip 2000™ - EWL
Of course if you can solve your problem via proper die adjustment, case and chamber condition. And if anyone thinks this is a bad suggestion, PLEASE speak up.
I find that a little EWG in the surface of my barrel, gives me a little more velocity and keeps it from getting as dirty. SLIP2000 makes a lot of claims, that I have seen. Though they don't mention resolving extractor problems (that are not sizing/case problems), makes me wonder if it might help???
Anyone else using EWG in their barrel or on their bolt?
