Just picked up the new toy and have a bit of an issue with it which I'm hoping the reloading experts on here can assist with...
Basically it is incredibly difficult to close the bolt with a round in the chamber. It can be done but sometimes this is a two handed job giving concern that the bolt handle might snap. It is doing this with Remington, Winchester and Federal brass.
The builder has said that it is a minimum headspace chamber to induce accuracy and that once fired the brass will be fine. Not quite sure I follow this and am concerned that when I start full length sizing the brass will just go back to this incredibly tight fit. The builder has said he can increase the headspace in 1 thou steps to make it easier to close but obviously I don't want to affect the accuracy if possible.
Just wanting to know what the experts think - please don't respond if all you are offering is that "this isn't right and send it back...etc"
