I have the same gun, I had owned the 375 & 458.
A friend purchased an African trip & no gun, I weakened and sold my 375.
I would not sell my gun for 895. Ever priced a new one.

I use to load 25 grains of Unique.. in a 458 with large pistol. mag. primers.. with a Lyman 485 grain lead bullet.. It worked well for deer.. and the brass would last forever.. The Barnes 600 gr. spitzer bullet can make a believer out of anyone.. at 400 yards.. Just a fun to shoot.. if you reload .. easy.. and loadable for anything.. There's nothing on this planet.. a 458 can't safely take down.. yet.. easily loaded to have less recoil than a 308..in a light weight rifle.. Damn good price too..

Work yourself up a load with Hornady's 300 HP and fairly large amount of H4198 and you'll fall in love with this caliber, trust me.

Why change the extractor, 700's work period. Leave the thing alone and shoot anything, even if it can eat or claw you. You put the shot where it is effective and just pull up another round for insurance. The round will be there. I have bet my life on it.

Some people think it is a gamble to hunt with a bolt action rifle Period!! double rifles only just in case of a failure of some type. I love 700 remingtons but for dangerous game I would have a sako style extractor installed. It's a great value for this rifle. Having killed all the pink elephants left in Oregon, washington and California I just have no need. Still a great deal though! Jeff

I have replaced enough extractors in Remington rifles to keep me from ever owning another unless it had the Sako-type extractor installed.

My personal preference is the Ruger 77 Mark II All Weather stainless for a Game Rifle.

Once again I must be the lucky one, 38 year os shooting 700's with out an extraction problem on 7 rifles.
Come to think of it my 600 has never had a problem.

I have had minimal troub le but to have trouble when something with teeth wants to eat you can be a bad thing. you don't6 here about many people being "wounded" by elephants. When an elephant is done with you there is normally nothing that can be recognized. Jeff

71 years old and have been shooting Remington bolt guns for over 50 years! Never needed a Sako extractor once in thousands of rounds in probably a dozen calibers. My first one was a Model 722 in .244 Remington. I must really be lucky!

I have over 20 Model 700s and said the same thing until a year ago when I bought a new Model 700LSS out of the 2007 limited run of .257 Weatherby guns. On the second shot while sighting it in, the extractor spring broke and I had to remove empties with a cleaning rod.

My brother had Bobby Hart accurize a 338 RUM Sendero for him. Got the rifle back and it wouldn't extract the brass. Somewhere along the line, the extractor broke. The rifle maybe had a box of shells through it when it went to Harts. On the contrary, I have an old 22-250 that has never been touched. Like Jeff said, if it has teeth or can stomp me dead, I want to know that I can shoot twice.
