Re: WSM Feeding Problems"
I own four Shortmag rifles. Two are Winchesters,a 270WSM, and a 300WSM. I have a Ruger 77 Mark II in 300 WSM, and a Remington 700 in 7mm SAUM.
I have had feeding problems with the Remington 700. Two times I have shot at a deer and the gun failed to feed the second round. I have retired that gun to the gun safe and only bring it out to shoot paper targets. The Remington is a push feed as you know.
My two Winchesters feed great and so does the Ruger. When I head to Wyoming on my elk hunt in Oct.. I will take my Ruger 77 Mark II. It feed almost as well as the Ruger 77 Mark II in 7mm Rem Mag that I will be taking as a back up.
The only reason I will not be using my Winchester Model 70 in 300 WSM is that it is too heavy(Coyote Model).
