I did shoot it tonight with different ammo. The extractor did not pull the shell case out but it wasn't stuck it took a little tap with the cleaning rod to push it out so I do think it might be the extractor. I will replace that and see if it does the job if not it will have to go to someone with more experience than me. The new shells did not expand like the old brass, they took more effort to get out. I will go with the Remington parts for the gun. Thanks for all the input on this.

If it is mechanical it can/will break. I have a 721 that has been used abused etc. since before I was born. The bolt and extractor are still in excellent shape. As Axxe said "if it breaks, I'll fix it w/ Rem. parts for $30-40.00" ( Alaska prices can be higher) and continue on.
