No it's possible the extractor is either malformed or it's not moving with enough travel to allow it to slip over the rim easily. Once it slips over the rim it extracts ok right? That click is the sound of the extractor popping over the rim. I agree with the others on sending it back. Savage needs to make it right.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!

Thanks, I already have it boxed up ready to go, so your extractor thought is going to be bugging the crap out of me the whole time the rifle is gone.
BUT....the extractor DID grab and extract every time I got a case or a cartridge fully chambered. If I was able to do that, wouldn't it indicate that the extractor is okay?
You said you herd a click before the cartidge would seat or the bolt would close . I was thinking as someone else poited out it could be a sticky extractor, and the snap was the extractor slipping over the case rim.
Sorry did not reads Bears responce before posting.
Thats why they call it hunting and not grocery shopping
