Evening all,just picked up a new tikka t3 lite in 308.Made up a dummy round to sammi spec and tried to chamber the round but the bolt would not close so set the seating die in a turn and tried again,still no closing the bolt,carried on adjusting depth but no joy.Pulled the bullet 150sp and full length resized the case.Tried just the case this time and no joy again.
Case length is fine and looked in the chamber but can't see an obvious obstruction.
Anyone had this before or can offer any ideas as to what's going on?
rather confused dave
Just closed the bolt with some effort and as you can see in the photo it has polished an area where it is printed 308win,there is also brass colour left on the face of the bolt?
something is wrong.
