Okay, you guys were right, took the scope off, and backed out the rear screw on the front sight and the bolt works smooth as butter. I filed about an 1/8" off of the screw, chamfered the bottom edge so the threads would start and she is ready to shoot!
Thanks for the help my friends. I would think they would not tap through into the bolt bore for the scope mounting screws to keep this from happening but what do I know???
