    I have a ejector pin on a rem 700 bolt that sticks every few shots, put in a new pin and spring works for a while and does the same thing. Was wondering if the pin is to small for the hole, or does it need more room?

    Probably got some brass or primer shavings into the hole binding the ejector. I've hat that problem before. Remove the pin and clean the hole good.
