haveing trouble closing the bolt
Hello everyone i am a first time post but a long time viewer. I purchased a tikka T3 in 25-06 earlier this year and went out to shoot it, and the bolt is very hard to close. I tried using hornady superformance 100 grain, federal premium 100 grain nosler ballistic tip, hand reloads with 115 grain ballistic tip ( at both min and max SAAMI specs for length), and federal premium 100 grain trophy copper. I tested the headspace with a go and no/go gauge and it was fine. Also,when i put brass that has been full length resized in the gun it works fine. Extractor seem to be fine too. I hope someone on here can help me diagnose what's wrong with my rifle. Thanks in advance.
