I am rebarreling a 1903 Springfield and after chambering it would not snap over on the cartridge case. Any ideas on what the problem might be.

I would imagine the extractor is hitting the edge of the extractor slot. and not allowing it to move.
The 1903 was designed as a control round feed rifle, but then the extractor was deeply beveled to allow the over-ride of the rim.
