Nate , did you happen to check the "square-ness" of that action?
I think that if it were me I'd be calling Borden as to the feeding troubles that this gun is having.
One things that puzzels me is that the barrel is chambered and has been threaded and crowned yet its not screwed to the action?
Was the action and barrel shippped to you from the smtih seperate?
Did you take it apart after you recieved the rifle?
I know that I once built a gun for a fellow and it shot great when it left my hands but after he got the gun their was claims that it woulden't shoot for squat , so he sent it back and I noticed that the crown was VERY shiney and their were out of round blast marks on it , SO I call the fella and ask what exactly he did to the gun and tells me that he polished the crown and chamber with a dremal tool !!!! So he then tells me that hes gonna have to get a full refund for the barrel installation charge !!!
So guys if you think their might be a problem when you get your gun call the builder before you try to fix it ,not saying that the case here just thought I'd pass that along
