I didn't know Husqvarna made guns either. Those are some good looking guns, are they expensive?

Can be! I had my dates incorrect, The 2000 series was made in the early 1970's. They are some of the highest quality firearms period. Swedish arms always were of very high quality. The term Swedish steel refers to the very high quality of their steel, which was just coincidence as the ore contains high amounts of carbon. When I had the 1942 M38 sportered the smith broke 1 drill bit and 2 taps drilling and tapping 4 holes. He said that is the hardest steel he has ever seen. If you find a Swede you can figure on $400.00+. If the seller has a clue, well above that. Cottontop did really well. Cotton, try just neck sizing your brass for that rifle. If you still have an issue try a new bolt body or head. I do have a spare strait handle bolt that is arsenal new (1940's still in paper) that I bought to help me w/ '96 action issues. Make sure the recess for the lugs are really clean, it may be not quite engaging fully.

jpattersonnh,
I'm thinking that the chamber might need a good cleaning as even unfired factory new cartridges seem to stick a little when trying to extract them. I know the gun hasn't been fired in a while so I think a little steel wool on a copper brush is in order. Also, the extracted brass has lots of small scratches running length wise as if the chamber might be a little rough.

Your right, the cartridge may not be seating correctly. I like the green scrub pads over steel wool though.
