Here's one for the Blaser experts. I was playing with my recently acquired R8 today, running in the new 30-06 barrel. The bolt would not release to clear the chamber, unless I pushed the de-cocker further up, in the direction of cocking (similar to the slight lift you give it, to open the bolt when it's not cocked). I have not had this problem in .243 though. I am told the bolt head is the same for both these rounds, it certainly extracts OK once the bolt releases and if the bolt head was too long, I suppose the bolt would not be able to close. I ran out of time to swap back to .243 to see if the problem persisted (hooter sounded and had to get back to work!).
Either way, I need to sort this out. Has anyone else had this problem?
