Probably the best explanation is that the steel case does not contract as much nor as quickly as a brass case so when the bolt tries to pull out the case before the case has fully contracted, there is a lot of resistance. With the extractor being the weakest link, it gives and chips the thin edge. As Kevin points out, there are fewer problems if the chamber is completely clean and there are no rough spots. As the chamber gets dirty, resistance to the extraction becomes greater and damage can occur. (not really a jr. member. Better known as jimb16)

Lost my login info for a while. Had to reregister. Just one of those things. Got a new computer and didn't get everything transferred over like I thought I did. Finally found a written list in the back of a desk drawer when I was cleaning. I figured I would jump back in. I'm still active in/on several other sites.
