I believe you were saying that the problem was with new Federal factory ammunition?  If the bolt operates properly without a cartridge, then mis-assembly is not likely the problem.  Check the serial number on the bolt, does it match the receiver number?  If it doesn't then the mis-match is likely causing an insufficient headspace problem.

If the numbers match, or if they don't, the best solution is probably return it to Ruger.  They will likely correct the situation as a good faith measure.

Let us know what you find out.
