T3X Head Space Issue?
I recently bought new T3x superlite in 6.5 creedmoor; I have what I think is headspace issue but not sure.
The bolt cycles smooth without ammo but when I went to break it in I found heavy bolt lift after firing; I had taken apart and fully cleaned the weapon on purchase to include the bolt
I also noticed fired cases had scratches from chamber near base in circular pattern; I fired about 20 rounds total using two different factory loads; Hornady 147 ELDM and Federal 123
Both have same issue and the empty brass I hand loaded does same thing; there is some resistance of cases when inserting by hand at las 1/2 inch and the heavy bolt lift for fired and unfired seems very odd
I reached out to Tikka support via Berretta USA got my auto response a few days ago but nothing more from them
Anyone else had issues like this with brand new Tikka?
