Sounds logical and it’s quite possible, but more than likely any bolt used is going to need to retimed as well as some other items mentioned in post 6. At least my rig had the same issue and correcting the timing resolved the issue. Modify the action enough and run ANY non-modified bolt and more than likely it will not work on extraction is how I understood it when I had this issue, especially on prefix RR actions. I’m not a Smith and am just sharing my experience with this same problem.I'm not a smith but if his bolt extracts from his son's gun and his son's bolt doesn't extract from his gun, doesn't sound like the bolt is the problem. Correct me if I'm wrong.
