    instead I returned it (traded it in) and I got another this is a Cadillac compared to the other one. it is a little hard to open when shot even just a dry fire ( probably just needs to be worked in and firing pin needs to be oiled.

    Could be just a factory defect, these were not works of art, remember. It should safe, if nothing happened the first time you shot it.

    Also, 7,62 and 7.62 is the same thing. English speaking countries use a period when dealing with numbers, and places such as Russia use a comma.

    -You should try shooting some of the surplus ammunition.
    -Where is the ammunition getting scratched when closing/opening the bolt?

    Where are the cases getting 'scratched'?
    -Are you using surplus ammo or something else?

    ok but will it damage the gun more with the empty round cause with my brothers Remington 700 adl .223 he tried to just show how to work the action to a friend with a empty casing and it got stuck and he had to take a cleaning rod to push it out. and idduckhntr the bolt is really hard to close. I was really afraid to shoot it but I did three times but I am still afraid. it left scratch marks in the casing so it might be a burr. I don't know what a burr in a chamber is but on the right side of the place were the barrel is not in the riffling but the wall kind of right next to it where the casing would touch not the bullet is really rough like think of clay and take a knife to it and score it you know how if you let it dry it is hard with those little little little balls and cuts that are really small and sharp that's what there like compared to my brothers is smooth and flat. the bolt heads are pretty much the same though my brothers might be a little smoother.

    Could be a head space problem or bad brass. If your bolt is real hard to close over a round I would caution shooting it.

    I still think it is the extractor. That's why it is easy to work without a bullet in the rifle, but hard with a bullet. I'm not familiar with what the rifle looks like exactly, but try to keep an eye on the extractor while closing the bolt and see if it hangs up once it touches the casing(use the empty casing you shot earlier today). I'm guessing the extractor got bent in a little bit.

    Yesi did pull it into the three pieces and oiled it down . Some things that i have read is that there could be a burr in the chamber. I used a light to check inside the chamber in mine and my brothers his is pretty easy to close while mine is a bugger ( only with a bullet placed in not when it's unloaded then it's fine.) but my brothers has a very smooth surface on the place where the barrel starts ( the wall around the tickling not the actual rifling .) while mine in that same area is rough and crapy is this what they Mean by a but in the chamber? Thanks.

    BTW, based on past experiences I am guessing the extractor is why the bolt wont close.
