    I have a ruger hawkeye in 300 win mag and right after I shoot it is very hard to work the bolt back. It is NOT hard to lift the bolt up which indicate pressure problems, so I am confused on what can cause this, because otherwise the bolt is butter smooth when operating any time other than right after a shot. It is new and I have only shot it a few times so I dont know if that can be a contributing factor. Any help would be great.
