Hi everyone

I went shooting today but encountered an issue with my M1A.....I shot 6 rounds and the operating rod and bolt disconnected from eachother.....took the rifle home to get a better look at the issue and I was able to reconnect the rod and bolt; however, im not entirely sure the issue has been resolved. The bolt feels like its rubbing on the frame, it doest feel smooth, but im not sure what it felt like before. Why did this happen? What can I do to help eliminate the issue in the future? Can anyone direct me to a funtion test video of the operating rod and bolt? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ammo I was using were hand loads....

168 grain Hornady hpbt

Varget 42 grains

CCI rifle primer

Brass: Winchester
