working up loads for a 30-06 i find the extractor slipping off the rim at the top of the bolt lift. the case can be pushed out very easy with cleaning rod. 6-8 lb presure. i am used to 700 rems which will extract over loads. is this normal and may chamber polish help? this is with normal bolt lift. thank you

Ther could be several things but I would first check for dirt and trash under the extractor. The extractor slides in a dovetail groove. It has a detent ball under it with a spring pushing the detent ball into a detent in the underside of the extractor. You can easily remove the extractor with a small punch by pushing it overr the detent ball. Be carefull not to loos the detent ball and spring.

thank you Mr. Lambert but i forgot to say it's old. fixed ejector, no ball and spring as you explained. maybe a controlled round feed?

The extractor and ejector are two different mechanical devices.

Is your problem extraction or ejection?

it's extraction, normal bolt lift but at top of lift when bolt is cams back the extractor pops over rim without starting case rearward. gun has not been shot much, under 100rd. extactor seems to have a lot of spring tension but haven't another to compare to.

Sounds like you have one of the older beryliam copper extractors that were cast. Some have problems with worn edges. Replace it with one of the newer steel extractors and replace the 1/8" detent ball with a 9/64" ball. The larger ball will hold the extractor closer to the center of the bolt face.

jb, Does your extractor look like the one in the fuzzy picture?
