Chambering A Round By Hand, Bad for Extractor?
Recently I have been noticing bullet setback with my Sig 232 and figured chambering the first round by hand with the slide locked back would minimize this. Upon further research I noticed some say this puts excess wear on the extractor since it has to slide over the back of the case? I read this on another forum so I am not sure of the validity of his comment, but would it be good practice to manually chamber the first round to minimize setback or does it really put excess strain on the extractor.
