Hmm, that does sound strange. I'm not sure which gun you're talking about though, our Model 48's come with synthetic stocks and our NoslerCustom Rifles have a wood stock.
In any case, the bolt shouldn't be doing that. We check each rifle we send out for specifically that problem. Frequently, if the action is removed from the stock and then replaced too tightly, it can crush the bedding and cause that.
If anybody does encounter that problem, we're happy to take a look at the rifle and correct any issue. The number to call is 1-800-285-3701 ext 1046.
Hope that helps.
Thanks a bunch. Your help is perfect. The gun owner,s name is Rick. He is a member of the Gig Harbor Gun Club in WA. state. I will tell him what I found out. Trust me I,m a nosler die hard. Your reply reinforces what I think about nosler anyhow. Hubcap
