I'll have to look at the bulk box to see the brand of the cheapo stuff mine likes. The regular CCI stuff runs best.

i was using CCI bulk copper plated round nose 40gr and Winchester 555 bulk 36gr

i did clean it before i put it in the stock. lubed up the bolt and inside the action housing. there's also rust on the bolt. how do i get rid of the rust?

ill do the cotton ball test.
Check the spring for kinks...if badly bent, or over 20 years old, replace.
J&P Springs has an inexpensive Hammer/FP spring kit available...

Rusty bolt would be more of an issue...rust is rough...makes sliding tough...
grab some fine-grit sandpaper or sanding sponges, apply plenty of gun oil, and clean it up until shiny...

But the Big Culprit is probably how the action is placed inside the action housing...
loosen your rear stock/action screw 1/4 turn, work the bolt...see if it feels better...then try the front...
play with the screws until it works properly...I've seen more than a few issues caused by cranking down on the screws too much.
Snug is good, overtight is bad...loose is worse...so you have to find the happy medium...

Depends on what it was supposed to hold

Ace Hardware...get a 10-pack for a buck or two...bring one in to make sure you get the proper size!

the recoil spring looks fine.
thanks for the tip on getting rid of the rust
ya i was reading on rimfirecentral and they say not to overtighten the screws on the front action.

i also read that some people just bought new feed throats but i dont want to go that far into modifying the internals

ill try all of your suggestions. thanks man

I've not done an FTC yet...hopefully won't ever have to...
To get the level of wear to require an FTC usually means they've shot the stuffings out of it, and may need a new barrel too...
kind of like needing to replace a transmission in a car...when you do that, you start wondering when the engine is gonna go...


I find that a new spring set & intense cleaning usually breathes new life into old rifles

Which one would also tend to find me preaching on RFC as well
