No brass to face, empties actually make a very neat pile, three feet to my right....very consistently.
I'm beginning to wonder if the newest extractors hold on to the steel case better than brass, or?? I'll go buy some S&B or Blazer Brass later this week and check. Extractor shows very little sign of wear.
