Thanks for the help,
When the WSMs,WSSMs and SAUMs first came out they had some issues because the were
still using staggered magazines and they did not want to hold more than one round.
Some rifle makers went to center feed mags and flat flowers like the Weatherbys had been
using on there 378 style cases and the problem was solved.
If you buy an older rifle or one that uses the staggered magazine this is the easy way to make
it feed well because you can adjust the mag box instead of the rails.
In-line feeding is easy on brass and bullets and works with push feed or control feed.
On all of the short mag builds I install center feed mag boxes because they can be adjusted
well and they prevent the second round from interfearing with the first during loading.
