    As of lately, last 2 times I have shot, my bolt has jumped the lip on 2 fired cases. One case each time. I closed the bolt again after the spent shell failed to eject opened again and brass ejected fine.

    Is this a "soft brass, high pressure, malfunctions extractor" issue?

    Would a sako extractor or M-16 extractor solve this for me? Its a mag bolt face that has had the lugs lapped and I want to avoid having to re-lap the lugs.

    It could be a excessive headspace issue that when the round is fired it is pushed off of the extractor. A sako extractor has a more positive extraction than the factory extractor and could be a fix for your problem but there could be something else going on.
