Did that work right?I think running his bolt in his wife’s rig will tell us immediately if it’s a chamber issue and doing the same with his wife’s Bolt being run in his rig. Checking head space of course before doing.
@bowhunter1287 you should start a different thread about this and tag myself and @BrentM as to not derail this thread too much.
What is PE?PE is measured off the PE ramp free space to the action. If it is greater that .050 - .080 then it needs to be shimmed. Usually OEM spec is fine but people like to spif up the actions and change the bolt handle. I have seen several of those cause issues, increasing the free space, and then PE is a big issue, especially on hot loads.
I have a couple of Savages and one I put a Tactical bolt handle on and it made a huge difference. I have a extra but I’m lefty or I’d send it to you. I’ll send you a pic shortly.I think that might be the problem I’m gonna look at in morning for sure and adjust as needed thanks
