I have had problems with this gun since it was new. You have to work the bolt three or four times before it will engage. The first time you try it ALWAYS resists closing, try a couple more times and it will eventually close. Very annoying. Also there is a mark left on the side of each piece of brass that is rough. Any help would be appreciated.

You don't specify factory or handloads -- handloaded cartridges may be out of spec, either insufficiently sized or, perhaps, the bullet seated too long. The marks on the brass indicate a burr somewhere that it shouldn't be, but without photos or an in-person look at it, it's pretty hard to diagnose.

Yup - not much info to work on, there.

The problem is with any ammo new factory or reloads.
