@ Don, yes that was one of the problems at first in the rifle. Lapua brass needed to be neck turned, the Norma did not. Once the neck turning was done I shot loads up to 29.4 with no bolt issues. Another shooter I know who uses 6BR said his Norma brass caused bolt problems until it had a few firings on it, his theory was that the brass needed to get a bit work hardened. He is one the veteran shooters and has held more than a few records so maybe that was it.

I am just glad I found a lower node that seems to work well with good stable velocities and tight groups. The speed is adequate for 800 but at 1000 it is a bit borderline, I will just wait and see and bump it up to the next node when I get to that point if needed
