    I have a great Savage 110 .308 that is accurate as all heck. I love the way it shoots after the trigger job I did to it. My next two items will be to change the stock and hopefully do something about the bolt. For some reason the bolt is pretty tough to work. It is probably the stiffest one that I have encountered. Anything I can do to loosen it up or make it work more smoothly?

    slap some boe paste, and a little rem oil lube inside the receiver, sit in front of the tv, and work it about a goezillion times.

    Mine is like that too, but it seems to loosen up the more I use it. Just oil it, and give it time and use.

    Shoot it . . . . :)

    I don't know how many rounds you've gotten through it but my 10FLP was pretty tight for about the first 100 rounds . ..it loosened up considerably by the end of the second 100. FWIW
