    I am 2 for 2 on good rem 700 actions. For my edification.... would you care to give a brief explanation? Thx.

    The bolt handle is supposed to contact the angled extraction cam ramp on the receiver right before the bolt recoil lugs disengage from the receiver recoil abutments (the abutments also have an angled ramp on the edge). The bolt handle then rides up the receiver extraction cam as it is being lifted which gives mechanical assistance for the bolt to extract the fired case from the chamber. When the bolt is all the way up the case should be dislodged from the chamber and when cycled rearward there is no resistance.

    Without the assistance from the extraction cam on bolt lift, the shooter has to pull hard to the rear on the bolt handle to get a fired case dislodged from the chamber.

    If you look closely the bolt handle is too far back from the receiver in the cocked position. As mentioned above, it will not give you the full extraction help when raising the bolt handle to extract the spent cartridge. The receiver body is excellent.

    Garandman, there have been some actions that have been produced that the camming surfaces of the bolt and action do not jive. Therefor, you don't get that pre-extraction of the spent case and the brass can be rough to remove. That's a layman's explanation because I be one. I could imagine other problems it could cause as well.
    Example - if you were looking at the rear of the action in Dusty's pic, those camming surfaces should appear like this // as opposed to l /. I hope that makes sense.
    edit - sorry I was late, type slow

    Because past threads here would lead you to believe buds sells a different remington 700

    There is a pretty good thread around here some place on bolt timing. YouTube it and there are some good videos to show it.

    I had been shooting a 700 SA for a few years with intermittent hard to extract issues. Got much worse, bolt out of time. I was told by my smith it was an inherent issue with 700 bolts. Sent to Accu-Tig in Ankorage, Alaska. Noooo more problems at all!! Locks up tight, brass comes out like butta! Great work by a fine gentleman!

    Actually Dan Armstrong is in Fairbanks. He is the "MAN" when it comes to the Remington for timing and extraction.

    You are correct sir! Fairbanks! That he is. Told me he’s done over 12,000 of them.

    I received 6 in , about 2 weeks ago, from Grice Whole Sale. All 6 lack cam engagement. Nothing new for a Rem 700. Been that way for years...

    Maybe a year and a half ago I bought 2 Rem 700 LH SS long actions. Sent em off to Dan D and said true as needed so if there was something amiss he would have fixed it, but the things work great.

    well, there's good intel, for a very simple mechanical action. thank you. bolt hits a ramp, leverage pulls the brass backwards. cam...
