New cam and bearings hard to turn

So today I decided to start putting the engine back together. The machine shop installed new cam bearings and I got a Melling SPD-11 CS-327. It was the closest I could get to stock. I lubed everything with the cam lub. The install went well until the last inch. I used the bolt to turn the cam to get it the rest of the way in, but now is is tight. I can turn it with a wrench but not with my hand. Is this common with all new bearings and cam, or do I have to lug the whole thing back to...
