Getting FTE on a 16" 6.8 with <100rds and can't get a definitive answer as to extractor specs. Are they standard 5.56 extractors or unique for the 6.8 bolt. If they are unique what are the differences?
What are the preferred combinations of springs/buffers/d-fenders etc? Does it really make a difference as to which end (small/large)of the extractor spring is on what side?

Have tried combinations of standard springs then wolf springs with and without blue and black buffers and d-fenders with the same result. Was trying to salvage the remainder of hunting season but gave up and sent it back. Your last question is spot on. Was using all reloads with no factory ammo to try. What little I could really see of the chamber looked OK but did not have headspace guages. Being a 16" suspect overgassing as brass well marked. Will let builder answer the last questions. Was just trying to get a feel for what extractor spring/buffer combo was used on a 6.8 because it seems to be black magic.
