Lots of things can cause a stuck bolt, but the first thing to look for is over-pressure rounds.

What loads are you using? Do they follow the manuals? How close to max are you loading? What is max in one rifle might just be a stout load in another. Be careful when approaching what the manual says is a max load.

Something else to consider; have you changed your stock? Some stocks take longer mounting bolts than others. Conversely, if that particular stock needs a shorter bolt, the mounting screws might be binding the bolt. Have you changed your scope mounts? I once had a Savage with a bound bolt because the scope base screw was too long. There are lots of things to consider.
