Re: 700 extractor replacement
Ok, My 7mm RUM is having a similar issue. I thought it was head space and nope. SO I then looked at the extractor and it looks pretty worn. Now for the rest of the story..... bolt is hard to close on some reloads and not others, all things being equal (I checked). I ruled out head space and brass differences. While looking at the extractor, I was inspecting the bolt face, and I believe that the groove (rivet style) the extractor goes into should continue all the way around the bolt face? there is no gradual fade of the groove it is just gone with lots of brass rub / smear? Recommendations? I know, I know, time for a new bolt. Any ideas are appreciated. BTW, the extractor is small and sharp compared to pictures I've looked at of new ones.
This all started from the hard closing of the bolt.
