    I would suggest taking it somewhere and getting it done. It takes a considerable air compressor to run one. I ruined one that way by not having enough capacity.

    They were my basic source for shot, powder, wads and shotshell primers. Gone now so I reverted to Midsouth for my powder needs. Don't know what I'll do for a shot supplier now. Oh well, I'm getting old. Maybe my stash will last me./beagle

    Wayne's right. You just have to get a customer rep that is knowledgeable enough about their stuff to know where to look for them. Last time I bought them they were $5 each but that's been a while. Lyman is a gold mine of parts but their cataloging...

    Probably the original intent. I've loaded quite a bit for both the S & W M52 and the Colt Midrange Match. The Colt will take a button nose wadcutter but the Smith is more picky. Then another reason is that one of the early mass reloaders like...

    Better yet than cutting up moon clips, look for some of the E-clips similar to the ones Lyman uses on HP mould pins. They come in all sizes and thicknesses. Check McMaster-Carr. Those moon clips get expensive to cut up./beagle

    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...

    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.

    Anytime I got a lickin', I knew I would get it before I did whatever stupid thing I was about to do. Looking back, it was worth it, as the lickin' didn't last long, and I did some pretty outrageous (for the times) things.
