Different manufacturers = slightly different dimensions.

You have a choice.
  • Only use ammo from one manufacturer and set up the extractor for that specific ammo

  • Set up the extractor for the average dimensions as noted in my sticky so you can use a variety of ammo but not necessarily from all manufacturers

  • Fit an oversized firing pin stop that would allow you to file the front wall of the extractor firing pin stop slot which would have the effect of pulling the extractor backwards toward the breechface and away from the case bevel. Of course, you'd have to be sure to maintain the correct hook-to-breechface dimension.

  • File a bit more off the front of the claw

The extractor has to be bent and/or the deflection adjusted so that the case head is held against the extractor tensioning wall with .010" of extractor deflection. Refer to Steve's sticky. It expains all of this.

No expert: yes thank you, I have done this, more than a few times, which is why I decided to open this thread. At first I thought perhaps the extractor wasn't fit properly, or for some reason it was too long. After some very mild filing then a few passes with a stone, I was able to tune extractor to the point where there is no denting of case bevel on the Remington brand rounds. However, if I tune extractor to the Federal and Blazer ammo, I can get it to just barely nick the brass. However, once I did that, the Remington brand falls out instantly. So I tuned extractor to a happy mid way point. I'll start really experimenting with variety of other brands and make a final decision on what to do. For some reason in the area I live Remington is by far the most prevalent brand that stores carry and have in stock.
