Make the bolt heavier or use a stronger hammer spring. The leverage the hammer puts on the bolt is partly responsible forhttp://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/search.php?searchid=19386049&pp=25&page=2 holding the bolt closed just a split second longer. It cannot compensate for a bolt that is not heavy enough but it can adjust the action timing slightly. Polishing the chamber and adding weight to the bolt was the correct way to resolve your issue. Another thing to look at if the problem comes back is to dull the point on your extractor a tiny bit. If the extractor is too sharp it can tear the case head off like yours did. The 10-22 extractor is only there to extract live rounds and to control the empty by holding on to it, not pull it out of the chamber.
exactly how does the bolt "open too soon and tear the head off the case"? its a blow back action - opened by the fired case pushing the bolt open. it pushes the bolt open and rides with it until the case rim hits the ejector. wouldn't polishing the chamber make things worse?? The case would have less grip on the polished chamber wall and fly out faster and easier.
