Ptg bolt question

I'm considering getting a ptg bolt for a new target rifle build on a remington donor action. Which extractor would y'all recommend? It's a 308 f/tr build. What about the firing pin, regular or .062?

    Standard pin size and I would go std weight too.

    M-16 extractor.

    What do you mean by standard weight broz? Will a standard pin work with palma brass?

    Stay away from the light pin assemblies. I have had two that would cause misfires with dented primers. Installing the stock weight pin and spring fixed both issues.

    Sorry I am not familiar with palma brass so you might want to seek someone in the know there.

    Jeff, Have you ever had any problems with the speedlock assemblies?

    The Palma brass has the Small rifle primer pockets. I 100% agree about the standard firing pin and the M16 Extractor.
    especially when using the magnum primers. Using the small rifle primers you might get away with the speed lock firing pins.

    Unless your rifle has a very slow lock time try the standard weight firing pin.

    Just my opinion.

    I ordered the speed lock assembly with the bolt. I've put 30 rounds through it for break in and initial accuracy check. So far it seems to work fine.... just wondering if there is any history of issues with it.
