Deflection is the most misunderstood, most often ignored, most difficult, and most important (IMHO) factor in setting up an extractor.
Yes, I chose the wrong word. I'll try to go to the range in the next day or so and see if what I did so far make any improvement. If not, then I'll try to lighten the tension a tad and see if I can make a deflection gauge. Thanks for all the advice!
