Remington 700 -M16 or Sako Extractor?

I have a 7 RSAUM on a Remington long action that has some extraction issues. I am considering replacing the stock extractor with either a Sako or an M16 extractor. Does anyone have an opinion on these options?

Thanks

Dan

I have installed and used both and prefer the M 16 style extractor.

I agree. The pinned M16 style is regarded to be a bit safer in the event of a rupture.

A Sako has the potential to come down the raceway toward your face.

That doesn't sound like fun.

For that cartridge, would you use the M16 or "mini" M16?

For magnum bolt faces I like the M16.

Cheaper and better to buy a PTG bolt as you want it and sell yours.
