    Little help needed

    Im having a bit of trouble with my new to me .308 when i first acquired it i was reloading it fine but after the 9th shot it started to be a bitch to pull the bolt back. Now its a pain in the arse and you have to haul on the bolt to slide it back. Ive got no idea so was hoping that someone on here would have a clue. Its a savage 110 Cheers

    get a good powder solvent and clean the hell out of the chamber and first part of the barrel.
    use a bronze brush. when you think it is clean as it will get soak in solvent then leave till tomorrow and start again.
    repeat for as many days as required until actually clean.
    When clean push a lube protectant like break free clp threw and a dry patch(just one)before shooting.
    will have built up carbon causing high pressure.

    perhaps strip and clean bolt then a light spray of oil may be in order as well?
    @JayColli did you ever have a similar issue with it when you had it? It hasn't been fired since I got it off you.
