Deal. You're a 15-minute drive away.

I hope that we can get an updated range report, after your barrel switch, including user's most likely cause of problem initially reported.

The barrel is in but I need to get it glass-bedded before I can shoot it again. This new stock is pre-milled for bedding somewhat and the receiver fits pretty loose. I don't want to crack anything.

For what it's worth, Tony gave it a look and said it was fine.

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

One thing to note, the hammer relaxes upward after it is cocked ( as the sear engages the hammer hooks) and the bolt rides forward. So even if cocked, resistance will be felt as the bolt is retracted and comes into contact with the hammer, pushing it down from the sear.

I think that's what I'm feeling, I just didn't expect the resistance to be as high as it is.
