What exactly do you mean ?

It's kinda hard to pull back at first like it's binding up a little at first

OR

It's gritty and grinds-ish all the way back and forward

it cycles fine untill halfway back then it takes more force than before to get it back all the way, it always got a little rougher there but never like this... this gun only has 500 rounds through it

Did you lube the spring guide rod where the bolt handle slides as the bolt cycles?

Clean again. When I had my gun shop I "repaired" many guns, usually .22s, with my favorite tool, spray carburetor cleaner. Make sure everything, inside and out, is clean, really clean. Then lube with a high quality product that won't gunk up.
BTW, using carb cleaner on a 10/22 you do run the risk of removing paint. Caution or a repaint is necessary.

Once upon a time, I took my 10-22 compelete apart and used a friends chemistry lab to clean it. Some kind of solvent and an ultra sonic vibrator.

Boy, did those parts get clean. I watched carbon flake off of parts. It was kind of cool.

It was so clean that when I put it back together and worked the action, it felt and sounded like it had sand in it. So I took it apart again and thoroughly lubed everything that moved.

That solved my problem. Not sure about yours.

Every stock 10/22 I've ever fired feels that way.
