Are you trying to just trying to get it to spec ? Or are you setting up the mec to give it a little extra squeeze 

I remember when I got my size master years ago you had to initially adjust the collet sizer and if I remember right you could give it a pretty good squeeze 

 

Just squeeze them enough so that they drop into my case gauge. No need to over do it.

When did you last do a deep cleaning of the bolt,  action etc?

Just what is the extraction issue?

OLG 

 

 

Last deep clean was this past fall.

 

It's not pulling out empty shells.  So if it falls to pull out the first one, well, I get a bunch of SG misses.

Stiffer spring for left side extractor then.

Polish the chamber.

Carry a 500 or so grain bullet in with you. With the barrel pointed up but not breaking the 170, drop it down the barrel. 9 times out of 10 it'll knock the hull loose.

That must mean a gun designed in 1887 is the highest capacity gun going in Australia

Had in original in 12 ga that I used for bp categories for several years.

Kind of looking to return to trap shooting one day.  The Chiappa long-barrel version is on my short list of guns.  It will not be as easy to shoot as a BT-99 but it was the choice of some shooters through the 1930s, when the Browning Superposed became popular.

  Howdy Lumpy....Yeah strange I know !!!.....further we can have punp rifles but no auto's..then you can have an auto shotgun for clays [ with a medical certificate stating you need it for less recoil ]. I have a lovely Rem 1100  :D..unfortunately we have to  deal with the cards they play....
