I need a little help from the gunsmiths here. I've got a 6.5-284 win. that I can't get to feed quite right. And since my second mag. box and spring just got here from Midway I thought I'd seek some advice before ruining another mag. or breaking another spring.
With the fist mag. box I could get the first and second round I put in the mag. to feed fine, if I put a third one in (first out) it "jumps" out of the mag. after the bolt has moved it forward about 1", this lets the second round out bind on the bolt stopping its forward progress.
Now I've been told that this caliber can be tough to get to feed and that I might have to stone the feed rails, unfortunatly I'm not a gunsmith so I am not even sure what a feed rail is. I assume (I know, I know)they are located on the reciever below the bolt and above the mag. box, but since it already appears the third round isn't being held in the mag. long enough already I'm a little reluctant to start taking off any metal on the reciever.
Any body have any ideas or home remedies I can try.
Thanks in advance
