Re: Savage bolt a little sticky
Your front action screw maybe to long and causing the rubbing on your bolt head. When I did some work to my brothers rifle, that was the problem with his. When I had my 300WSM reamed it needed to go back to the Gunsmith after a little while. The chamber required some polishing and the head spacing backed off. Everything was a little too tight. It worked just fine after that until I fried the barrel. You may want to have the chamber looked at for any rough spots, or head spacing. My problem was loading neck sized only brass and ejecting spent rounds.
