When ya' can't actually see it,, it becomes a 'game' of speculation. "A guessing game". Not really educational for anyone. If you happen to 'rub someone wrong', the reply often is, "I / we come here to learn". What we learned here is that everyone has a 'guess'.
Worked fine before the trigger job, New trigger and it don't work no more, It don't take a White Coat and a Slide Rule to figure that out, No offense intended

Put the original trigger back in and start over.
Test fire with factory loads.
Inspect the chamber and fired factory brass.
If everything is back to normal, revisit the new trigger as cause of the binding.

PS - Don't forget to specifically clean the chamber periodically. Just running a patch through the barrel doesn't get the job done.

7mm STW, I seriously doubt he's gonna' find any factory ammo. He was lucky to find any new brass.

Is the replacement trigger shoe contacting the trigger guard? Or is it interfering with the stock? Sounds like it is not cocking when lifting the bolt and the trigger is being pulled at all times because of interfetennce.
