Re: Sticky bolt on the savage 338's?

Hornady brass and semi rough chambers is what i believe is causing the heavy/sticky bolt lift. I switched to Lapua brass and it got better but even on mild loads i get heavy bolt lift so i may try polishing the chamber after todays shooting session.

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755
