I truly astounded by your publish regards. I really appreciate that you took all this time to try and help us...
Mike, I could never figure it out either and I think that post by starmoon is one of those bot things. We have a couple of strange posts like that on the forum, nonsense posted by a person with only 1 post.What was this thread about? The OP must have deleted it before I saw it some time ago but I see yesterday's comment and wonder.
I did a little digging, KidShalene had a total of 3 posts since he joined the forum on 09/25/13. On 10/01/13 he logged onto the forum and removed all his messages leaving a string of ........... on one of them and Adios...... on the other two. Maybe it took him a week to figure out he didn't like playing with grownups.The original post included a picture of the chamber and an extractor hook along with a shell case. The point was the hook was not in contact with the case rim. He wanted to know if it was normal. My response is as you see it.
I think Chuck is right about the odd, make that strange, post below mine.
I don't know if it was me or "STARMOON" that apparently offended the OP.
If I get your response it was about the thought the extractor hook was too long and jumping the rim thus failing to extract? Actually the rim thickness of the 45 acp is .048 and the breechface to extractor inner hook should be .075. Nearly every Kimber I have measured is .069.I have never tried this before, with any gun. That said, I have to believe there are built in tolerances for the extractor. That is, it is cut so that it will have the needed space to grab any case head in the chamber.
If you are having FTE problems with this particular round, try another. The case head on the next one may be just a bit thicker and therefore more engaged with the extractor. In fact, if you have a micrometer, you might want to check and see just how much difference there is between different brands and case types.
