I have just got back in from lamping and need to see if anyone can throw any light on my little problem.
I started reloading a couple of weeks ago and have done quite a few in 2-3 times fired Remington brass with no problems at all, so I thought I would buy some once fired Federal cases.
Any way the process as follows
Resize deprime trim chamfer inside and out and then into the ultra sonic for a clean, blow out with a airline and then somewhere warm to dry.
Any way my problem is when I went to chamber the first one tonight the bolt was real stiff to lock down. It went forward fine it was just the locking down of the bolt, I tried a few more and there was others like but then some where ok
Is it likely to be the brass or something else.
Any ideas or thoughts will be appreciated
