Default Problems with savage FCC-k

The bolt will not extract the brass. I'm checking my reloads to see its ready for the full length sizer and they won't pull out. Extractor?

did you fire your reloads? or just run them through? did you overload and get high pressure signs? you could have broken your extractor or spring if you used high pressure loads. call Savage you can send your bolt into them and they may fix it at cost to you or you can get the parts and diy.

Are you just neck sizing your brass prior to reloading? I had extraction problems with my 10FP when I was just neck sizing the brass. Since then I've been sizing with the full length die and haven't had any problems. Accuracy is the same as far as I can tell. IMHO, the benefits of neck sizing only are outweighed by the reliability problems that are often associated.

My FCP-K chamber was much tighter than my .308 case gauge.

Does the gun extract factory ammo? Fired and unfired?
Do unfired reloads extract smoothly?

Savages have an accidental advantage to their design; Parts fail before the entire gun does.

The extractor is 3 pieces: extractor-spring-detent ball.

It's simple to take apart and put back together. Double check the spring is not kinked or stuck. The ball is actually there. The extractor is tracking in its slot.

I have found that a few passes of both flat sides of the extractor across some fine emery cloth, goes a long way to smooth the tracking in the bolt slot and eliminate any machining burrs. Finish with a tiny bit of lube in the spring hole.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself...A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."......Cicero
