Default Yugo sks loading issue

When I go to load my weapon I have a full mag. I pull back on the bolt n release to load one in the chamber and damn near every time it wont close all the way. Resulting in the sks to read a round in the chamber so the bolt wont release n the rifle will not fire because a malfunction with the bolt. Everytime I must feild strip my sks and apply a lot of pressure to release the bolt. Sooo how can I fix this

Does it happen with a single round?

If it doesn't do it with every round try leaving your mag a couple rounds shy of full

Usually. Now that I know the issue ive been able to fix it while firing. It becomes a problem when others fire it. Theres a part where the bolt is supposed to stop before the sights however mine comes in short n low and gets jammed on that lip. Ill upload a pic if my description is useless

I think Zombie got it... Do you ride the bolt? Just pull it back and let go!
