Were you able to extract and eject the spent case? If not sometimes there is some build up of cosmoline in the chamber, even after a good cleaning. When it's fired the residue becomes like concrete. I have had to use a rubber mallet to open the bolt after firing some of the Russian steel cased ammo. They have the lacquer coating that becomes liquid at firing and then hardens.
I have a VZ24 that the bolt had to be opened with the same rubber mallet. The rifle had the wrong firing pin and cause it to bind. A local gunsmith cured the problem.
Good Luck,
