Bought rifle about a year ago. cleaned rifle, put in safe. Took out yesterday sighted in all is good. Bolt was real tight ejecting spent casings. Got home, cleaned rifle. Now when working action fast, it sqeaks. Broke down bolt assembly/ firing pin, wiped down and lubed up. Still does the same unless working slowly? Any help appreciated

Are you using grease or anti sieze on the bolt lugs?
Have you ever removed the bolt shroud and greased the threads?

It shouldn’t squeak, also if you had a extremely heavy bolt lift your load is way to hot and over pressure.
If you didn’t lube anything and the lugs are galled now that could explain the squeak.

Have you put grease on the back side of the lugs?

I can't say but the 700 is the only bolt action that I've had this problem with.

Remington didn’t hang the moon, but all these clone actions are pretty much identical in operation to a 700..

That being said I have never had any one of the 20 or so I’ve owned squeak when I moved the bolt in any direction.
However I don’t treat my guns like it’s an AK47 and throw it in the mud and see how tough it is.

Clean, grease, and oil goes a long ways and I am positive that my great, great grand kids will have it one day if the dems don’t get what they want..

Ditto.
I've had several and still own several Model 700's never had an issue with any of them.
