Is that rifle chambered for the .30-06 Cartridge? If by chance it is, here's something to check.

Remove the trigger group and peer into the receiver. Check the rails to see if the hardened bolt head has done some "bolt head over-rotation" and peened grooves from the locking lugs into the softer metal of the bolt channel. Unfortunately, bolt over rotation is a common malady in the Remington 742 when using the .30-06 cartridge.
