Target shooting is a great deal of fun – there is no arguing that fact. But the fun can quickly take a turn for the worse if you experience a case head separation or a ruptured case, especially if you have no way of quickly correcting the problem.
Case head separation and rupturing are two problems that can occur frequently if you often use reloaded ammunition or you happen to have a firearm with an incorrect headspace. When a cartridge ruptures or experiences case head separation, part or all of the case may get jammed in the chamber of your firearm. And, as noted, if you have no way of correcting the problem in a timely manner, then your fun will surely come to a premature end.

.308 Broken Shell Extractor
As noted, the .308 broken shell extractor is a pocket-sized tool designed to aid in the removal of broken or ruptured cases from the chambers of firearms. This particular tool, which has been manufactured from stainless steel and finished with a black rust-resistant coating, measures approximately 3 1/2 inches and is designed specifically for those firearms chambered in .308 Winchester/7.62x51mm NATO. Interestingly enough, the tool can be reversed and used with firearms chambered for the .30-06 Springfield cartridge as well. This versatile tool is a must-have for your range bag or field pack.
Curious as to how a broken shell extractor works? Typically, cases that get lodged in the chamber of a firearm have their base or rim torn off by the extractor of the firearm, leaving only a thin brass tube that is difficult to remove. By loading the broken shell extractor into the chamber, the arms of the broken shell extractor latch onto the case and provide a makeshift rim, which provides for the removal of both the broken shell extractor and the broken case.
As noted, the .308 broken shell extractor is a must-have for any avid outdoorsmen. Throw in the fact that the design is based on an original USGI part and you have got something that is practically begging for a purchase. Grab your .308 broken shell extractor today for only $9.95.
