    Added, Miha's handles are wonderful. You may have to make a small adjustment on the pivot screw nut to get them prefect, but they are strong and work perfectly.

    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?

    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?

    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 am glad this thread came up and your talking about neck tension. This is the most under rated or ignored step in reloading cast bullets, this is the #1 problem when reloading 9mm, 40, 10 and sometimes 45 acp. I just wish expander buttons were...

    If this is a .44 mag revolver, I'm sorry but I don't use those powders. Others will chime in before long. FYI, I do shoot the Lee 310 mold, which casts a smiddgen lighter for me than a real 310 grains, and I have had good success with 16.4 gr of...

    777 is hard to light but when it goes, OH MY. It's energetic. Above is good advice.
