need advice
my new Remington bolt action 308 sticks a little when the bullet is fired the bolt doesn't wanna eject the shell out of the chamber you have to tap the bolt back alittle to make it open I've checked the shells after I fire it and nothing appears to be wrong as for swelling or scraping it only time it happens is after i shoot can any one tell me what's wrong

Are you shooting reloads? It sounds like a presssure problem. Check your cases for signs of high pressure.Faltened primers etc.

Can you post a pic of a fired case next to an unfired round? Is there a lot of stretching? Could be a headspace issue.
