Hi is the rifle new? While not a 375.. I have the Ruger guide gun in 416 Ruger and it had a few teething problems when new. Bolt was stiff and hard to close /open, sometimes didn't extract and sometimes didn't pick up a fresh round. Its fine now and runs slick. I ended up dummy loading 4 woodliegh solids into 4 fresh cases with primers and spent a few hours loading chambering unloading oilstone/emery paper polishing parts till it all freed up. The extractor blade/claw (part that grabs the case)had a small burr on it that I sanded off. It ejects spent cases out about 8 to 9 feet which is great except when you need to find them in the ferns to reload.. I also found that the bolt needs to worked with some authority not like a Neanderthal clubbing a mammoth to death but deliberate methodical actions. Open bolt , load close bolt, fire, open bolt all the way back to extract if that makes sense. I keep that steady cadence it works like a Swiss clock. If I work it mad minute style like my 77/44 or .308 Scout can be it doesn't like it . Anyway good luck with it ..

Hello Sambar Hunter.I bought the rifle new in late 2014,it has had that problem since I bought it,but I got ill just after and did'nt worry about it that much.The problem I've noticed is when I try to eject a fired case and holding the bolt in a certain way the ejector blade will not spring up to the position where it will strike the base of the case and eject it.It looks like the slot machined out of the bolt is slightly misaligned with the ejector blade.If anyone out there has had this problem I would be interested to know..

I think I know the part the you mean I pulled my bolt apart and it was one of the pieces that needed a "polish" was like part A and part B while sitting together were ok they just needed that finishing touch. I think yours is/was hitting the end of your cases mine was sitting too high and not grabbing the case sometimes. Once it was sanded etc and seating properly it worked.
