I installed a long ejector and am wondering what the next step in the process is to tame the casings that are ejecting out of this gun. As I observed the firer I noticed that the first case came out fine and over the right side of his head and shoulder. The second case came out a bit weaker and barely cleared the shoulder and the third made it down his shirt. These cases are not exactly the three that I am referring to but they are there to show you the inconsistancy that I am talking about. I did file the lower corner a bit and I mean just a bit.
A bit O Help Please I am stuck like chuck. :confused:

The case on the far left inidcates that the extractor is clocking. Try increasing the tension a little and see if it helps. You may need to also
cut a few thou off the front pad to set the hook closer to the breechface centerline...but just try retensioning it for now.
