Yes, normal. But the cartridge ought to cut down on the play. But you need to disassemble the bolt to eliminate ejector tension on the cartridge to get a real feel for the play. Bolt disassembly is not for the feint of heart- there's little bits under tension in there, they like to leap out and get lost. And poke you in the eye. Read up on the de- and re- assembly first.
