Savage 30-338 lapua help with MAG

I just finished a build on a savage long action.. its a 30-338 lapua ackley.

Heres my question.. once the cases are fire formed (with hardly any taper) they will no longer feed down into the magazine. I can put one round in the mag.. but its to narrow to push it down past that... Anyone make a wider mag for this action..

the rifle began as LRH savage 111 338 lapua. this does accept Accuracy inter. mags...

any answers?

Thanks!!!!

    You might be able to get away with just bending the front of the mag lips open a little. Take care when doing so. Bend a little, check fit.
