    :dunno:I have been reloading some 10mm brass and have noticed that the brass is getting chewed up on the base from (I asuume) the extractor. Is this normal for a G20.. Medium reloads.. Is there a fix?

    Can you elaborate a bit about what you mean by "chewing up?" Pits and nicks are quite normal and consistent with the expectations about what happens when high speed brass comes in contact with a pointy object.

    Do you pipe load the gun? drop one in the chamber and then drop the slide on it? That chews up the brass pretty bad on those particular rounds, isn't all that good for you extractor either.

    It just seems the the small gouges on the base of the cartridges are just a little excessive. None of my 1911 do this and they are reloaded to smiler pressures. I do not pipe feed any cartridges. In my opinion it seems like the ejector is hitting the cartridges just a little to hard during extration. I just replaced the guide rod spring to a #22 spring. I have not fired it with that spring and have some unfired cartridges to try.
