I own several Model 70s both longspring Mauser extractor and push feed. As the Winchester engineers intended, it is easier to get a pushfeed to shoot. I like the longspring extractor for long magnum cartridges which are loaded to the max.
What cartridge do you have in mind? What is your magazine length?
The cartridge I am going to use is a 7mm rem mag throated for the 180 bergers and 168s,
the mag and bottom metal will be CDI so there will be enough room to seat them long.
What is the longspring extractor?
