    I too have had trouble with ejection of 6mm BR and 6mm Dasher brass. With a simple little modification, it now ejects just the way I want it.

    Nothing wrong with the extractor, be it Sako, Remington, or Sliding plate. It is not enough forward push on the ejector button, for these short cases. Once the case moves out of the chamber, the neck rides in the lugway and that is about all the ejector button has as far as push, when it comes to the ejection port, the extractor just lets go and drops the case where it is.
    Fix: The ejector needs more movement, remove ejector button from bolt, use a Dremel tool with either a cut off wheel or grind stone and remove a small portion of the retaining pin groove on the rear portion of existing slot, you now have the ejector extending out further, aiding ejection. Unless something else is actual wrong, this should do

    Thanks Dick, I just finished a dasher repeater for hunting and it wasn't really kicking the brass out like it should. Well now my boy better have his hard hat on, Ha Ha. No it really works great thanks for such a good tip. Bill

    that's great that it worked for you, built many BR repeaters, the reason I prefer changing the extractor (to a Sako or M16) on a Rem type bolt is because relocating the extractor from 3:00 (stock location viewed from the rear) to the 1:30-2:00 position (required by the conversion) is it prevents the case mouth from being pulled into the right bolt lug way, preserving the spring force in the ejector. When re cutting the retaining groove to get the ejector to move further forward you need to be careful not the let the tip protrude too far as it can cause feeding problems with the case rim hanging up on it.

    gme, good point, that was the first thing i was looking at and actually relieved a little on the ejector "M-16" lip as i thought it was hanging on the case as you mentioned and actually it was. It did help a little but was still just barely ejecting. After i tried what dick had mentioned i was able to actually remove a couple coils on the extractor spring to help relieve side tension on the brass when chambered, whether it help or not don't know but it really ejects very well and chambers noticeably easier on a sized brass. Thanks so much for all the good tips. Bill
