Bolt Closure problem with certain ammo
Hello, I'm new to the forum and a new Tikka owner. I shot my new T3x lite in .308 for the first time this past weekend and I am very pleased with it. I intended to shoot Hornady Black 150gr. and PPU FMJ BT 145gr. The Hornady shot fine, however the bolt would not close on any of the PPU I tried. I did not force the bolt, when it would not close normally with a PPU round I tried another, 4 or 5 in all. They were all the same.
Is this typical for Tikka and PPU? If so are there other ammo brands to avoid? Is is possible I just did not give the rifle a thorough enough new rifle cleaning (I always clean before shooting) Any experienced advice would be appreciated.
