I built a 6X47 SM years ago right after it first came out. I did it for a guy on a P64 M70.
Feeding was a challenge due to the low case taper. Eventually got it to work right with some fussing. The claw extractor had no issue with getting it out of the pipe so I can't comment there.
Have not seen the Lapua version since it was introduced at the 05 Shot Show. A simple fix if it is indeed a problem might be changing over to a center feed spring loaded mag box. Just about anything will feed with those things.
