In the days of the old west they never made a rifle in 45 colt there is a reason.
Yep, the balloon case head was smaller than modern .45 case heads and the extractor couldn't get a good grip on it. You prolly do have a point about the fouling too tho. After a few rounds if the extractor COULD get a good grip it would prolly just tear through the copper case head.
