Re: Sticky bolt conundrum

If the bolt lift is easy but the bolt is hard to pull back you may have an issue with the rifles bolt cam. When the bolt is lifted it should "cam" back to provide primary extraction force. All of the extracting force should be when you lift your bolt not when you pull it back. I would take it to a gunsmith and have this checked out. New brass starts out smaller so it will spring back a little smaller than reloaded brass will.
