    Sticky bolt is often the sign of excess pressure. You said you were well under max? I haven't looked at manuals to confirm your loads. If it also does it with factory ammo, and Ruger wants to see the rifle, my inclination would be to send it to them. Lots of variables, but if you have to use a rubber mallet, that is a serious sign!

    Good call. And, you might want to talk to Hornady about that ammo. They'd probably like to see it, too. Good luck. Let us know.

    Be glad you don’t have a Remington. You would have probably already broken the bolt handle off the bolt. I would send it back to Ruger. It might just need a finish reamer or your chamber polished. A buddies Remington was doing the same thing and his was due to a rough chamber. I’ve also seen the same thing with a Savage

    If it's sticking with factory ammo, definitely send it back. If it's reloads, screw your sizing die down an additional 1/8 turn.

    Some factory ammo is stupid hot.
    But being under book max and sticking I feel like the rest of the guys you have an issue.
    It may not be too long of a turn around. At least it's not a month before deer season.

    Very true. You may be surprised just how quickly they turn it around.
