Yes. I was wondering about that as there is some resistance just before i close the bolt.
There are some tiny burrs on the edge of the chamber lead but i'm not sure if that enough to cause that or if the pellet is catching on the breach seal. Haven't decided how to address that yet. Maybe i'll try one of the fine conical polishing stones on my Dremel at low speed. Using a drill bit like one of the Youtube videos i saw seems excessive.

They can usually benefit from some polishing in there.. It really smooths out the action.

I did what the video showed with 5.5mm drill bit, it seemd to have smooth out the loading somewhat, also the flyers were reduced. As it turned out, the drill bit is a little under-size, measuring only 5.47mm in diameter.

The conical stone followed by conical buffer with compound works a treat..
