    Pietro, That's not my experience. I've rubbed off the shine of 5-6 REMINGTON 700 BDL's. I've hunted with them in the rain in CO & NM in & snow too. I've never done any water proofing. One time I slipped crossing a stream & used my RIFLE as a...

    Check out Rock Island /Armscore. Got a 1911 9mm on sale for $399 + tax. Good solid guns with surprisingly good triggers.

    I can't use them, yet, but I am setting up to load 300 Weatherby. No rifle, but I do have some brass and two sets of dies. I even have some small lots of "out of the normal list of calibers" brass to offer up in return. I would like them if we don't...

    I use BULLSEYE in my LIGHT TARGET LOADS. I clip 3 coils off a factory spring. Cast from the LYMAN #452488 195gr SWC out of LINOTYPE. Drops at 191.5grs average. Load over 3.5grs of BULLSEYE. It's a great powder puff target load. But it doesn't...

    The part of the extractor that folds down over the face of the bolt is the CLAW on a claw extractor, the bevel is the bottom edge of that claw that slips into the extractor groove of the cartridge, notice the shape, very very little at a time.

    I've done a couple from BLANKS and they needed extra work to be 100% To tight or not enough rounded off on lower corner, feeding issue, too loose and you are screwed, it can jump the extractor over the rim and you can run it like a push feed, not...

    Look directly at the face of the extractor, head on if you will, you will see the bevel on the edge of the extractor. That bevel is what slips into the extractor groove on the cartridge. After you get the extractor to fit down in to the groove in...

    GI are all roll pins. I don't remember the manufacture but there was a scope mount that used the slot for the stripper clip guide for a scope mount that required the receiver be threaded.

    This is the best I can do with cell phone. Bolt is in same position as your picture, no cartridge under claw as yours, note the extractor to bolt interface, that is what it should look like. I hope this helps you

    Yes and then the bevel on the claw to cartridge head, the cartridge should slip under the extractor with enough force to hold the cartridge in place-CRF. make sure the collar wraps around the groove in the bolt as a slip fit also, especially if...

    Maybe this will help, maybe not:-) cell phone pictures not too good. SR extractor on bolt and with cartridge under extractor lip. You may have the wrong extractor or one that has never been fit, maybe even an extractor collar that is wrong?

    If your knowledge of collector coins is lacking, stay away. Common silver rounds and bars are rarely faked, and the value is tied to spot price. It still pays to stick with recognized mints. Everyone brings up the SHTF and while it isn't...

    There's way to much clearance between bolt and bottom of extractor, there is not that much with a cartridge under the lip of one that's correct.

    Yes that looks to high and is causing the bind I would guess, once you fit that correctly then the claw/ bevel will need fit to case head. Where did you get the extractor, one of Midways NEW blanks?
