not sighted in to my

not sighted in to my satisfaction anyways...used 7.62 winchester to get close and do barrel break in,but durrring wind/low light and no bench,also experienced some fte's due to "timing of bolt" i think im over gassed,and need to reduce my gassing to achive a slower (longer dwelling) bolt/carier.seems like extractor cannot hold on due to case pressure during the time the bolt is moving rearward.case always fell out of chamber upon erecting the rifle
