Bought the rifle a short while ago(from a gunshop) and due to a house move hadn't taken it out as much as I'd have liked. Have more time now and this far from smooth cycling of the round,is really starting to annoy.
The bolt slides the round from the magazine,but then comes up hard against something,I have to jiggle the bolt back and forth a couple of times to get it into the correct position before it'll chamber.
Whilst I was working up a load,I was more interested in bullet placement and largely ignored it,now it's really pi££ing me off.
I have chamfered the mouth in case that was running up against something,but to no avail.
It's a small cartridge,.204,don't know if this makes a difference,I have a 75 to compare it to and that is super smooth. Any ideas,or do I send it back?
