I'm assembling the dropouts on my Rune which has boost v2 dropouts.

With the bolt screwed in all the way to the hanger, it can slide back and forth. I assume not a problem once the wheel is in there.

Is this normal? Below is a pic, can see the extra space.

Not normal. The bolt should be flush with the dropout. Carefully check that you have not cross threaded the bolt. I think the factory loctite makes it seem like it is a bit tougher to thread in than expected. Just be very careful!

Yeah it felt like it was bottoming out, so I just stopped. I gave it the beans (gently) and now its fully seated. There was quite a bit of dried threadlocker gooped onto the threads...
