Not saying it’s the same problem, but I passed on ordering a Ruger American Predator in 6 Creedmoor 2 weeks ago, as the ones they had on the shelf, 6.5 CM, the actions were hard as hell to shut. I have never had a bolt jump and shimmy while trying to close the bolt on it. I asked the gun counter guy to see what he though and he agreed and tried the other one they had. While not as bad, it was still not good. I know the RAR I own that’s 7-8 years old now is a lot smoother than either of those two were. Granted I’m not expecting it to be bitter smooth like my Tikka, but not sand paper rough either.
