    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...

    I finally got a chance to try out the Noe 314299 boolits a member sent me, sized .314 and lubed with 2500+. I loaded some up with 19.0 gr of SR4759, and 21 grains of 5744. I got similar results as Ray's post above, very tight groups with both loads....

    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...

    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?

    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?

    Sounds like a blank new extractor that has not been fit to case head yet?

    I use a 5 gal bucket with about 4 gal of water in it. I float 7-8 small wet Dollar Store sponges on top of the water, a bullet just tips the sponge and dumps. If you do slash water in a cavity it is gone instantly anyway so no worries.

    I've been using it with powder coated gas checked bullets for 3 years now according to the 2015 date on the HBN bottle. I've also added to lube(no value I could determine) and used on a patch to condition the bore, helped with getting HBN back into...

    I tried it in 30-06 with 200 gr Lee bullet, nice mild load and reasonably accurate for conditions that day. 15.0 grs was most accurate of 14-16 tested, 5 round groups of 1.5"-100yd @ 10*F Jan 2004, 15.0=1556 fps from 22" Savage 110. WSF(15.0=1555...

    Lyman's data is correct. I've measured the psi. I've shot 5 gr Bullseye under a lot of 190 to 205 gr cast in many different 45 ACP weapons for years with complete satisfaction, it is my standard 45 ACP load. Five gr Bullseye under the 230 gr fmj...

    Well I think the op was specifically speaking to the 1887 model, NOT the Winchester model 1901. 1901 IS the model number in this case that Winchester used different steel in than what was used in the 1887 model. Easy to tell which model you have....

    Kev, I know many do that. For myself I will stick to black on those guns made and ment for black. I wish you continued success in your endeavors with substituting smokeless.

    Drm50 I think you hit it on the head. It's so easy to think that I'll just use a lite load of smokeless and it will be ok. I'm sure it is tempting to many, but if you want to shoot smokeless, than the best way to do it is to buy a firearm made...

    The 1887 models, both the 10 and 12 gauge were made for black powder. Winchester did not start using fluid steel until the 1901 model, that model is made for smokeless powders. I am working on data for both the 10 & 12 gauge. I have one of each...

    A close look at the price tag on top of the can and you'll see "sealed". The LGS owner let met "whip out my pocket knife" and open it because if it was good I was buying it. If it was bad he was throwing it away. Believe it or not but I shoot a...

    I use that same Lee TL314-90 SWC in all of my 30 Cal rifles sized .311, and sized .314 in the Mosin Nagant. I use 3.2 grains of Bullseye in the 308, 30-06 and Mosin. 2.7 gr BE in the 30-30. I just very lightly coat them with LLA. The loads are tack...
