All, My wife has a savage rifle with a barrel which I purchased from Apache gunworks. I went to work up some loads for the rifle using brand new lapua brass. Every few pieces of brass are slightly stiff to load into the rifle (Not stiff bolt lift after firing). I decided to then run some pieces of brass through a full sizing die to see if that would help and it did not. I still get an occasional stiff bolt while loading. This has never happened with any factory ammo so I am pretty confident it is not the barrel. Thoughts? As an FYI, I fired those rounds and there were no pressure signs that I can see so I'm also confident they are safe to proceed using.
