    has it always done this? Is it just stiff AFTER you've fired a shot? Is it stiff to just lift the bolt and or to extract the case? Is their any obvious marks on the round both when fire and when unloaded?

    It's stiff to extract a round even if not fired the bolt is hard to move up or down

    And the chamber is not excessively fouled and or you've given it a good clean with a chamber brush? No damage to the round after extracting such as scoring? Have you tried only the one make of round? Are the rounds excessively dirty (ie waxy, federal seem to bad for it, Norma are normally very clean) ? If so try shinnying up a round with a chamois or yellow duster and try again. Can you borrow a round of a different manufacturer from someone to try?

    +1 as aliS suggests but most likely just a slightly over sized batch of cartridges for your chamber. A different batch or brand will have it back to normal.
