in 6.5 Creedmoor scratches the shell case at the curve of the shoulder about 1/8" to right of TDC. Not a long scratch but deep enough to catch a fingernail I burnished every sharp edge on the inner topsides of the action I could reach with a curved hard steel pick but a chambered case still gets nicked a bit.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Suggestions on what part of the action might be scratching the cases? The chamber mouth does not appear to be buggered.

Close the action with a fresh cartridge placed where it would be after just clearing the magazine. If it gets scratched you have eliminated the magazine. Then another one just past that point and so on until you reach the chamber.

I have never had this problem with my American predator in 6.5cm. That’s really weird. Have you have ruger a call to see what they think is causing it?

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.

Did you inspect the chamber with a bright light to see if there was a burr at the shoulder? You could also run a q-tio up in there and see if it snags.
I had a Wilson Arms barrel with a burred chamber I had to some honing on.
