Mauser extractor too tight

I'm still working on my project M24/47 and I tried to chamber some rounds for the first time tonight. The bolt binds up with about 1/2" of the round still visible as the back of the cartridge is starting to come up the feed ramp and go into the chamber. I took out the bolt and tried to slide a round into the bolt face and it was VERY difficult to get it under the claw of the extractor (I'm assuming this is the problem). Is this something that can be adjusted or what should I try? It is flawlessly clean in terms of cosmoline.
