50 95 from 50AK hard to close
« on: October 02, 2022, 02:18:00 PM »
Been dinkin around making brass and got them trimmed to the correct length but the bolt is hard-ish to close on the case. I'm thinking I should remove a bit off the case head until I get a reasonable close? It requires just a bit more effort to close than my other lever guns do.

Be sure to take it off the forward side of the rim, not the back.
