Rem 700 sticky bolt

Recently bought a new 700 and it seems the bolt is stiff to get into the chamber. Bolt lift and close are normal. It feels like the lugs are slightly binding with the chamber as the bolt enters, because otherwise the bolt is smooth moving around until the bolt face actually reaches the chamber and it becomes rough. Is there any way I can fix this easily or has anyone experienced anything similar?

If it's parkerized, you may want to give it a little time. Took mine a few hundred rounds to smooth out. If not... ???

Yes its on the lapua. Im trying to fix it myself. I adjusted the front action screws because the torqued the living **** out of them from from the factory and now it is smooth. What is going on with remington? They need pull their head out cause this aint the first problem I have head with factory new guns from them.

Try a little grease on the lugs. Also, if you've already installed scope mounts, make sure that one of the screws isn't a little too long.

lap the lugs in if you haven't done that already.
