  1. The last few range videos, you seem to be having issues with a sticky bolt when trying to feed a fresh round into the chamber. Is this caused by some combination of mechanical factors or the human element in the equation?

    What could I do in my rifle prep / drills to prevent the same from happening?

    Keep up the good work!

    1. There are a wide range of factors that can contribute to a sticky bolt on feeding. In the case of what you were seeing, it was inadequate lubrication. The Remington 700 does not have a very powerful camping action when you lock the bolt down. If you compare the bolt lugs of a 700 to something like the Accuracy International series of rifles, it’s pretty easy to see. Keeping the bolt lugs well lubed with grease and properly sizing your ammunition can greatly reduce chambering problems.

  2. Great video with good information. Should you clean the inside of the magazine??? Keep the information coming. The Calendar of shoots was great.
