Re: 700 extractor replacement
I got a new magnum extractor from Midway yesterday and installed it this morning. Went to the range to do a little load development and noticed the extractor isn't working the way it should. If I insert a cartridge, it will extract it perfectly. If I chamber a round and shoot, when I open the bolt, the case is still in the chamber. If I close the bolt again, it will pick up the spent casing and eject it. I compared this new extractor to the extractor on my other 700 rifle, it is installed correctly, but I noticed that the lip on my other extractor sticks out towards the casing .025 more than the new one. Any thoughts?
